Reminder: Join Us on Facebook!

Many of you have already joined our Precollege 2016 Facebook group… but if you haven’t what are you waiting for?

The Facebook group is a great way to (virtually) meet your PAs and chat with your fellow Precollege students before your arrival…and let’s face it, isn’t it always better to have a familiar, friendly face to turn to when you start a new program?

Making new friends is pawsome

Remember, the Facebook group is private, so you’ll have to request to join and be approved by an admin before you can join.  See you on Facebook!

Precollege Hack: To Do List

Who’s excited for the start of Precollege?



We are, too! But wait– before you skip happily to your first class, there are a few things you need to remember to do:

  1. Activate your NYU NetID and read your NYU email
  2. Get your NYUCard
  3. Double-check your course registration and student account on NYUHome to make sure everything is set and you are meeting the program’s registration requirements for residential or commuter students
  4. Submit your required program and health forms
  5. Get your book list from the NYU Bookstore
  6. Attend a mandatory OGS Check-In Session (international students only)
  7. Attend the mandatory NYU Precollege Orientation (all students)

More detailed instructions are also available on the Critical Instructions page of our Admitted Students website.

You may also want to:

  1. Submit your travel details to NYU Traveler
  2. Register with the Moses Center, if applicable
  3. Map your class location(s)

Finally, if you have decided that you cannot attend NYU Precollege, just let us know!  We can process your full withdrawal now so your NYU record will be updated and you can receive a refund on tuition. Just email us with an official withdrawal request at

Reminder: Pay Your Bill!

So, you’ve registered for classes, you have your schedule, and you’re reading the blog. Good for you! But have you remembered to pay your bill?


If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to pay your NYU student account balance by the deadline on Thursday, May 12! If you add or drop a course after May 12th, you will have 6 business days to pay the adjusted bill. All students registered in courses should have received notification of their bills at their NYU email address. Even if you think you have paid your account, it is a good idea to double-check online via NYU Home to make sure everything is settled.

To check your account balance, click on the “Academics” tab in NYUHome. Then click on the bright pink “Student Center” link. Once you’re in your Student Center, locate the “Finances” tab, under which you can find “View Bursar Account.” This will bring you to your eSuite, where you can review or pay your account balance. More detailed instructions can be found on the Bursar’s website. All students may contact the Bursar’s Office directly with further inquiries about their account

Information about paying your bill is available on the NYU Precollege website and NYU Bursar website.

You may also contact us with any questions.

Reminder: Register with Moses Center

Remember when we told you about the Moses Center a few weeks ago?
I.forgot.05.jpgThat’s okay, we’ll remind you!

At NYU Precollege, we want to make sure you are set up for success, and have all you need to do your best. We realize that some students may need additional resources in order to maximize their learning experience. Whether it’s receiving a time extension for your exam, permission to audio-record your lecture, or something else entirely, NYU has resources to help you.

Students in need of support, large or small, due to any kind of disability are encouraged to contact the NYU Moses Center for Students with Disabilities to register with that office prior to the start of NYU Precollege.

The Moses Center determines a student’s qualified disability status and assists the student in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services.  Services provided vary depending on a student’s need but can include assistance with class note-taking and lectures, alternative exams, and special housing.

If you need assistance or have questions about disability services, please contact the Moses Center.  We recommend that you register with the Moses Center no later than mid-June to afford that office enough time to evaluate need and arrange for services prior to your arrival on campus and the start of class.
