Details for International Students
The program is mostly an online program with the exception of the in-person residency at the start of the program. Students are expected to attend the in-person residency in January. To participate in the in-person residency, international students will need to hold an immigration status that allows them to study in the U.S. A B-1, B-2 or ESTA (Visa-Waiver) are considered tourist visas and participating in a course of study for a degree program in this status is considered a violation of status. NYU advises against entering the U.S. to study even for short term visits when the primary purpose of visit is to attend classes. International students who need to apply for a visa to participate in the in-person residency may apply for the F-1 visa with the U.S. Embassy/Consulate. In order to apply for the F-1 visa, please submit your I-20 form application to the Office of Global Services. If you have questions about applying for the I-20 form or the F-1 visa, please contact OGS at email@example.com. It is recommended to begin the student visa application process as soon as possible due to visa delays in certain Embassies and Consulates.
