Activate your Net ID - Go to http://start.nyu.edu and follow the instructions. Your NetID is your login and username for your NYUHome and e-mail accounts. When you do this, you will at the same time also enable your NYUHome portal and NYU email accounts.
Log in to NYUHome - Go to http://home.nyu.edu and enter your NetID and password. Visit the various tabs to familiarize yourself with the layout and information available.
Log in to Albert - From the NYUHome Welcome screen, click on the tab labeled “Academics.” On the upper left side of the Academics page, click the box labeled “Albert Login.” You will now be at the Albert Welcome screen. Albert is NYU’s student information system.
Accept/Decline Your Admissions Offer - Once logged into Albert, “Applicant” should appear at the top of the page. Click on “Application Status” under “Visiting Students.” You will be directed to a page to “Accept” or “Decline” your admissions offer. Please follow the instructions carefully.
- Activate/Check your NYU Email - Please Note: If you “Accept” your admissions offer, at this point in the process you will need to WAIT 24 HOURS to activate your email. If you receive an error message stating that the system does not recognize your credentials, simply try back the next day. If the problem persists, email a screenshot of the error message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After 24 hours, you may now activate your NYU email account by returning to the "Start" page (http://start.nyu.edu) and logging in with your NetID and password then selecting the menu option "Set an NYU Google Apps for Education password".
You can check your NYU email by logging into NYUHome and click the “Email” link, or navigate directly to email.nyu.edu, and using your NYUHome credentials. All NYU correspondence from this point on will be sent to your NYU email address. Your NYU email address consists of your Net ID@nyu.edu.
Special Note for Waitlisted Students: Waitlisted students will not be notified about changes to their status until after the notification deadline via the email they used for their supplemental application (NYU Profile). Students who are taken off the waitlist will be able to access their NYU email 24 hours after they accept their offer of admission.
