At this point you should have visited the consulate to apply for your visa or have a scheduled visa appointment at your jurisdiction consulate (if appointment is required). Please contact OGS at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Now that you have completed your housing application within the Study Away Confirmation Portal, I know many of you can’t wait to find out your housing assignments. Thank you for your patience as these placements are confirmed. You’ll receive an email from Tel Aviv staff approximately two weeks before arrival with details about your living arrangements for the coming semester.
As a reminder, health history forms are due to the NYU Health Center by August 1.
NYU students should have picked these up at 726 Broadway, 3rd floor prior to leaving campus for the semester.
Visiting students should have received these at their permanent address in early June.
If you have any questions or still need to obtain these forms, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-443-1199.
Ebills will be sent to your NYU email next week around July 15. In addition to paying them by the deadline (August 5), consider setting up direct deposit with NYU if you anticipate receiving any portion in the form of a refund. This will minimize the time it takes to receive these funds.
Instructions on how to do so can be found on the Bursar’s website here.

All students studying with NYU Global Programs are automatically enrolled in international health coverage through HTH Worldwide. You will soon receive an email from NYU Student Insurance/HTH Worldwide with your certificate number and instructions about creating your HTH profile.
NYU and Visiting students – HTH Enrollment emails will only be sent to your NYU email address. Do NOT delete this email!
All students are expected to maintain valid domestic health insurance over the course of the semester. HTH is valid only for the dates of your study away program.
If you receive health insurance through your school and are covered by a parent’s insurance plan, you do not need to maintain both levels of insurance for your semester abroad. Many students waive the insurance through their school seeing that they will be covered by a parent’s plan domestically and HTH while abroad. Investigate this as you may end up saving hundreds of dollars.
