If you have not yet paid your ebill, please take the necessary steps to do so by the January 5th deadline.  As a reminder, ebills were sent to your NYU email address ONLY.  You can also access your ebill as follows:

E-Bills Received

NYU’s Office of the Bursar has now sent out electronic bills (e-bills) to all registered students for the spring semester. As an NYU Shanghai student, you should also have your spring Shanghai housing placeholder charge posted – all students must pay this amount by the due date. Once the final housing placement has been made, the e-bill will be adjusted, resulting in either a credit or an additional charge. The final charge will appear on your e-bill within 2-3 weeks following the start of the program.

Bills are due by January 5th! If you have not received an e-bill (remember, this is only sent to your NYU email account), you can still access your e-bill as follows:

  • Log into NYU Home (home.nyu.edu)
  • Click on the Academics tab, then click on Albert Login
  • Click on the “Student Center”
  • Click on the “View Bursar Account” link located under the Finances menu
  • This should link to the secure eSuite website

Please note: Students currently living on campus with meal plans will automatically see a charge on your bursar bill for spring 2017. You can have this charge removed by logging in to the meal plan portal with your Net ID and password and cancelling it.

Pre-Departure Orientation Recap & Make-Up Quiz

For those who could not attend the in-person orientation, we missed you. There were some great questions and discussions with the Global Peer Mentors.  

While there is no way to replicate that experience, we are providing this version of the NYU Shanghai Pre-Departure Orientation Spring 2017 presentation for those who could not attend. Please ensure to read through the presentation in its entirety and complete this mandatory quiz to test your knowledge and make sure you know the essential information! This must be completed by Monday, November 28. 

Some key points to remember from the orientation:

  • All students must arrive on Feb 2 and can check into the residence after 12 pm. On-site orientation is Mandatory on Feb 3.
  • Housing is ONLY available during the dates of the program, Feb 2 – May 27!
  • All class attendance and course related field trips are mandatory.  Do not book personal travel until you have arrived and confirmed your syllabi.
  • Bring all the prescription drugs you will need for your entire stay. Make sure you talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for any medication you take regularly for the full 4 months. Do NOT ship medication overseas.
  • All students must take a Chinese language course. If you are unsure about your level, take the CAS Chinese Mandarin Placement Exam. If you think you should place out, email shanghai.chinese.program@nyu.edu before Feb 2, 2017.

If you have any questions or concerns after you have read through the presentation, feel free to email me.  To be put in touch with an NYU Shanghai alum, email global-peer-mentors@nyu.edu.

E-Bills Coming Soon & Setting Up Direct Deposit

The NYU Bursar will send bills via email on November 29.  Please keep an eye on your NYU email account for your NYU Shanghai bill. You can also log directly into eSuite to view your billing statements.  These will be due in full by January 5.

Visiting students, if financial aid money from your school is going to transfer to NYU and/or your school pays on your behalf, it is okay if these anticipated payments arrive after the bill becomes due. Only the portion of the bill that you are personally responsible for paying directly to NYU must arrive by the due date.  

Additionally, if you anticipate receiving any portion of your bill in the form of a refund, we recommend setting up direct deposit with NYU.  Instructions on how to do so can be found on the Bursar’s website here.

Note: you can make your parents an “authorized user” of your e-bill account, if payments are typically made by them. For instructions on how to set this up, please see here. Questions about the e-billing process? View the Contact Us page on the Bursar’s website to reach out.

Housing Application Due Tomorrow, November 18

Throughout the past few weeks you have received information and access to the NYU Shanghai Housing Application (if you confirmed your spot in the program). This is a final reminder that your housing application and housing reservation payment are due November 18.  You will receive your housing assignment and address about 1-2 weeks ahead of arrival. 

Students who submit the housing application after November 18 will be administratively assigned to open vacancies and their preferences will not be taken into consideration.
