If you have any issues submitting your payment, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at shanghai.admissions@nyu.edu.

Set Up Your NYU Email And Enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication

Email is an important tool NYU uses to pass along critical information about the enrollment process. Soon after you confirm your enrollment, you’ll be assigned an NYU email address and given instructions on how to create your account. Once created, please check your email regularly. Contact NYU’s global IT Service Desk at AskIT@nyu.edu if you have trouble creating your account.

NYU uses Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to help protect your sensitive information online. Visit start.nyu.edu to enroll in MFA.

Submit Your Final Transcripts
 
We understand that the ongoing challenges associated with COVID-19 have created significant interruptions to education, and prolonged school closures may result in a delay in final transcripts or examination results becoming available. We will continue to monitor the situation in the coming months, and will update admitted students of any change to policy.
 
Send your final transcripts to NYU's Office of Undergraduate Admissions by July 1 to meet our proof of graduation policy. If not, it is likely that you won't be allowed to register for fall courses and you'll be dropped from your pre-registered courses. An extension, though, will be granted to students outside the U.S. whose secondary schools operate on a different schedule.  
 
For Students Attending Non-U.S. Institutions: All matriculated students who have attended an institution outside of the United States are required to have their final graduation documents authenticated by our partner, Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE). Please review our Proof of Graduation Requirements for Students Attending Non-US. Institutions for instructions.
 
 
Notice for all admitted students: Please do not mail any documents to Shanghai, China.
