If you’ve paid your $500 reservation fee, you will be able to activate your NYU account (please allow 24 hours from the time the electronic deposit is submitted before attempting to activate your account).
Activating your account will give you access to your NYU email and will allow you to use the shopping cart functionality in Albert to prepare for registration (more info on registration to come!)
It’s important that you activate your account ASAP so that you can move forward with your study away plans. Additionally, using your NYU email is vital since we will begin sending the What’s Next emails and other communications to this email only (don’t worry – we’ll give you a heads up before we do that). NYU’s Bursar’s office will also send your eBill to your NYU address only in July, and you don’t want to miss that!
To activate your email simply:
- Return to start.nyu.edu and enter your netID again.
- On the next page, enter your NYUHome password
- On the next page, click on the “Activate NYU Google Account” option
- Presto, your NYU email account is created!
You can also set up mail forwarding. After signing in to NYU Home, click on Preferences on the top of the page, then find the Mail forwarding option under “Your email” and click edit. From there, click on “add a forwarding address” and enter the email where you would like the NYU email correspondence to forward.
