NYU Precollege students are not the only members of the NYU community; their parents are, too! We understand that to both parents and students, NYU can seem large and daunting–and NYC even more so.
We hope the information we provide here and via email to students is helpful to your students as they prepare for study at NYU. As a parent, the best thing you can do to assist your student with preparations is to discuss NYU Precollege with one another. Conversations about what to expect while studying at NYU, experiencing life as a college student, and living in New York City can be immensely helpful.
We also recommend that parents and students carefully read the NYU Precollege Handbook together so you are aware of the rules and regulations of the program and can discuss particular policies of interest such as academic expectations, leaving campus to explore the city, FERPA and student privacy, or overnight/weekend leaves from the program.
