To help sophomores and juniors prepare for their time abroad in the fall 2017, students are required to attend a Pre-Departure Orientation hosted by the NYU Shanghai Office of Global Affairs and Office of Student Life. Students have received a separate email invitation for their designated Pre-Departure Orientation session. Please refer to the Global Week Schedule for the date and time of the session for your specific site.
The Henry and Lucy Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) determines qualified disability status and assists students in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services, both at their home campuses and while studying away.
Students currently registered who will be studying away must contact the Henry and Lucy Moses Center for Students with Disabilities in order to discuss resources that might be required, to provide the necessary documentation, and to arrange for these services well before departure.
Additionally, students should speak to the Moses Center if they feel reasonable accommodations may need to be requested while away. Accommodations include but are not limited to: testing accommodations, note takers, use of computer for exams, materials in an alternate format, and provision of sign language interpreters to name a few.
Please visit the Study Away and Disability page on the Moses Center’s website to learn more. Information is provided for all NYU students (NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, and NYU New York home campuses), as well as for Visiting (non-NYU) students. Requests for accommodation at the NYU Global Sites must be made no later than four to six weeks before departure.
Students are able to reach out to the Moses Center with questions by calling +1 (212) 998-4980 or emailing email@example.com.
Leading up to the fall 2017 term, each week there will be new posts about everything from visas to registration to packing tips (and everything in between). Make sure to read all the posts to stay on top of your requirements and use this blog as your main point of reference throughout your pre-departure steps.
Let us know if you have any questions and congratulations again on your admission to NYU New York fall 2017!
