Getting Ready for Fall

We are looking forward to meeting you.

NYU SPS Welcome and Orientation - Fall 2021

Orientation and onboarding events are key components of the NYU SPS student experience.  Our events have been thoughtfully curated to ensure that you have all the information you need for a successful academic journey. Some sessions are mandatory, while others are optional—but all have been created to help you make a seamless transition and to allow you to become a member of our community. We scheduled most of our on-boarding and orientation events to be in person, but we realize that some of our students may not be able to join us this fall.  Please note that many of our events will be recorded and links posted so that you can access sessions at a time that works best for you.   

How can you learn more about our events?

  • Check your email throughout the summer; we will communicate information about orientation and onboarding events often.
