In May you will receive important communications from our Campus Life and Global Education offices. You will be asked to submit a copy of your passport so that we can start processing student residency visas for any student located outside the UAE. To ensure this process goes smoothly, please follow the instructions below if your passport will expire in the next two years.
Please start the process of renewing your passport IMMEDIATELY. You MUST renew your passport in order for us to apply for your student visa.
We strongly recommend that you renew your passport now, if possible. Renewing your passport now will ensure that we can not only apply for a student visa for you to join NYUAD in the fall, but will also ensure that you are able to apply for visas for further travel opportunities you may wish to pursue during your first two years on campus.
Throughout the month of April, NYU Abu Dhabi is hosting several events - both online and in person - around the world to celebrate the Class of 2023. These events will connect you with current NYU Abu Dhabi students, faculty, admissions staff, as well as your future classmates. Log into the NYU Applicant Portal to reserve your spot.
Students admitted to NYU Abu Dhabi as part of the Class of 2023 will receive an email in early May with information about how to set up their NYU Abu Dahbi email address. You will not be able to activate your NYU NetID (network identification) until you receive the initial communication. It will be important for you to activate your NYU NetID immediately as all future communications will be sent solely to your nyu.edu email address.
If you have forgotten your NYU password, you will need to reset it.
If you are not receiving emails from NYU Abu Dhabi it is possible that you’ve activated your NYU NetID, but did not activate your NYU email. You can activate your NYU email easily by going to the start page and select the link "Google Apps for Education Password." Once you set the password, your email will be activated.
MFA (Multi Factor Authentication) is standard within NYU Abu Dhabi. You will require this to access the student portal and NYU email. Follow the steps to enroll for MFA (NetID required).
Please arrange with your high school counselor or IB Coordinator to have your final transcript sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in New York or Abu Dhabi. Final transcripts can be submitted by your counselor through the Common Application, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org from your counselor’s school email address, or by mail to either of the following addresses:
NYU Undergraduate Admissions
ATTN: NYU Abu Dhabi
383 Lafayette St.
New York, NY 10003
NYU Abu Dhabi Admissions
Building A4, 1st Floor
PO Box 129188
Abu Dhabi, UAE
Many students will not have their final transcripts by the deadline for a variety of reasons (IB results or A-levels may not be in yet). If your transcripts will not be available until later on in the summer, you are automatically granted an extension to the deadline. Once final or provisional results are available your school must submit them to Admissions immediately.
You will have access to your financial support award, provided that you filed a CSS Profile and Profile/Waiver for your noncustodial parent, if applicable. The Profile(s), and any supporting financial documentation (if requested), are required for all students wishing to be considered for need-based institutional aid.
You may access your award offer in NYU Albert. From the NYU Albert page, click the Academics tab, then Applicant Login, select Financial Aid, followed by Accept/Decline Financial Awards for "2020".
Your award letter is available for you to view and sign on your To Do List. Be advised that signing the award letter is not a confirmation of your admission to NYU Abu Dhabi. You should read the award letter carefully as it will outline the details and requirements of your financial support offer. You may view the 2019-2020 estimated Cost of Attendance on NYU Albert.
If you are expected to receive financial support from a source outside of your family, please notify the Office of Financial Support at email@example.com immediately. Such support may be in the form of government grants, scholarships from community organizations, or other sources. Any such financial support from an external source will be considered in determining the amount of financial support you ultimately receive from NYU Abu Dhabi. Your combined awards cannot exceed the annual cost of attendance.
It is important to note if your financial support covers home travel, please do not make your own travel arrangements as the University (Office of Global Education) will send you more information and instructions about your travel to Abu Dhabi in mid-May.
If your financial support does not cover home travel, please make sure you book a flight landing in Abu Dhabi during the scheduled move-in dates for Marhaba. Due to UAE visa regulations, it is necessary for all flights to be booked to arrive in Abu Dhabi (not Dubai or Sharjah).
Please note that in mid-May you will also receive more information about the UAE visa process. Once the visa procurement process begins, please do not plan any kind of travel through the UAE prior to Marhaba as this would invalidate the entry permit the University will be arranging for you.
If you have any questions you may send your inquiry to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
