Welcome to Campus & Final Reminders

As today is the first day of classes, we at the Office of University Programs want to officially welcome you to NYU and January Term! Here are some final reminders:

Walk-In Hours: Isaac Amad, your Academic Advisor, will be available each week in the Academic Resource Center for walk-in advising hours at the following times:

Monday: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Tuesday: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Wednesday: 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Thursday: 1 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Or, if you are unable to meet at these times, email up.advising@nyu.edu to set up an individual appointment.

Drop and Refund Deadlines: Don’t forget that today, Monday, January 4 is the last day to drop a course and receive a full tuition refund. Get in touch with the advising team ASAP if you need to drop your course. Additionally, this Wednesday, January 6, is the last day to drop a course without receiving a “W” grade (withdrawn). For additional dates and deadlines, please see the January Term student handbook.

Winter Guide: Get involved during your time here! Check your NYU email inbox and the Student Resource Center (SRC) website for the Winter Guide, a newsletter highlighting events on campus and throughout NYC during January Term.

Once again, welcome to NYU, best of luck with your courses, and please be in touch if you have any questions!

Textbooks and the Bookstore

If you can believe it, January Term starts in just two months! Although we know you’re busy with the holiday season, don’t forget to start preparing for classes! One way to do this is to purchase your textbooks.

The NYU Bookstore website allows you to search for your textbooks by either entering your student information or your course information. New and used books are available through the bookstore, and many students also choose to purchase books through Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. The bookstore’s website features a brand new price comparison feature, which ensures that you get your textbooks at the best price possible!

If your search comes up empty, don’t fear! Some professors do not post their textbooks on the website, and will instead distribute a book list or syllabus on the first day of class.

Shop online or stop by the bookstore to pick up your books, check out the computer store (which offers discounted student prices on technology), and maybe even pick up some holiday gifts.

Academic Resources for January Term

As you know, January Term is an intense session, with a full semester’s worth of work packed into three weeks. That being said, we want you to know about the academic resources available to you as an NYU student this January.

Moses Center for Students with Disabilities: The Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) determines qualified disability status and assists students in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services. If you need any kind of accommodation for this January Term, please contact the CSD now (!) to register. Contact information can be found on their website.

Libraries: The 9 NYU libraries and 8 affiliated libraries are headed by Bobst, which features over 25,000 seats for studying, computers for student use, the Avery Fisher Center for Music and Media, and lots of books. Learn more about what Bobst has to offer on our library website.

Study Spaces: Aside from the ARC, where University Programs is housed, several other student lounges exist on campus. As is the case with all resources, be sure to check January Term hours before braving the cold.

Most importantly, don’t forget about your peers! Form a study or support group  to help you through the term! And, as always, contact us with any advising questions or concerns.
