To prepare for the MSW Program, please read and complete the tasks on this checklist. Be sure to regularly check your NYU email account for important updates, deadlines, and next steps!
New Student Checklist
1. Complete Onboarding Essentials
Students who wish to be considered for federal, state or private financial aid, including loans, should complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The federal school code number for NYU is 002785. You can learn more about the Silver School's scholarship opportunities on the Financial Aid & Scholarships page.
Turn in Your Field Learning Forms
If you will enroll in a Field Instruction course during your first semester, please complete the First Year Field Placement Questionnaire on the Field Learning website. This does not apply to students, including most students in the Extended, Extended OYR, and 32 Month Programs, who will begin Field Instruction during a later semester.
2. Register for Courses
Submit Your Final, Official Transcript
If you have not already done so, please have your final official transcript from any school listed on your application that you have earned a degree, sent to the Admissions Office. It's a required part of your file and you will not be able to register for the second semester without it. For more details please view this pdf.
3. Prepare for Orientation
Pick Up An ID Card
An NYU Card serves as your student identification, your access to NYU buildings, your Campus Cash card, and also will get you a discount at many local businesses. In addition, you will find your student ID number and your NetID on the back of the card. For instructions on how to get a card, visit the NYU Card website.
Get An APA Manual
You will be required to write all of your papers using APA style. It’s best to familiarize yourself with it sooner rather than later. You can find the current edition in the NYU Bookstore or at the library.
