Academic Information

Academic Requirements

About one month prior to the start of your program, your department will send you via NYU email academic information on specific requirements needed in preparation for your participation in the program. Such academic information may include attire requirements, coursework preparation, etc. If you have questions about this, you may reach out to your academic department directly for more information.

Student Conduct Standards

Students and parents/guardians should discuss with each other the rules and policies set forth here. Please be advised that due to the particular nature of NYU summer programs, certain student conduct policies are considered to be fundamental to the success of the program. 

Failure to comply with the rules and policies of the University and/or of NYU summer programs may lead to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from a program with no refund of tuition or fees.

These policies can be found on the NYU Summer High School Programs Handbook website.

College Credit and Course Information

During the 4 weeks with the Tisch Summer High School Program, students will earn 4-6 college credits. Each college or university has its own transfer policy, so students will need to inquire how credits earned in the Tisch Summer High School Program can be applied once they are admitted to an undergraduate program.

All grades will be posted by September, but academic transcripts ARE NOT automatically sent at the end of the summer. If students would like an academic transcript, they can submit a request by:

  • Visiting the Registrar’s Office located at the StudentLink Center (383 Lafayette Street, 1st Floor)

  • Mailing or faxing a letter to the University Registrar.

  • More information can be found on the registrar’s website.

Transcripts can be requested at any time. When making requests in person, photo ID must be presented. Mailed or faxed requests require the signature of the student. Only the student can make a request for his or her grades. Please note that any students who have not completely paid all charges attributed to their program will not be able to request a transcript until their Bursar account is settled.
