Weekend Workshops—Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to common questions about the High School Academy Weekend Workshops. If your question is not covered here, please contact us directly at sps.hsacademy@nyu.edu.

Our classes are held on weekends, and we offer half- and full-day courses.

Students who are currently in high school in grades 9-12 may register. Due to the academic rigor of the program, we highly recommend that students who choose to enroll in these courses have achieved a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.

The deadline to apply for fall workshops is October 9, 2017.

If you can no longer attend a High School Academy program, you must notify us in writing immediately by sending an email to sps.hsacademy@nyu.edu.

Course drop requests must be received in writing and emailed to sps.hsacademy@nyu.edu. If you submit a drop request before the second scheduled class, you are entitled to a 100 percent tuition refund. After the second scheduled class, there is no refund.

No. None of the courses offered award credit. However, for your records, your participation in the program will be included on an official NYU transcript that you may request from the University upon successful completion of the program.

Unfortunately, there is no financial aid available.

All classes will be held at the NYU School of Professional Studies located at 7 East 12th Street.

NYU is located in one of the safest neighborhoods in one of the safest cities in the United States. That being said, it is still a large city, and the NYU campus is not enclosed. The NYU Office of Public Safety works hard to maintain security throughout the area in which NYU facilities are located. Students are encouraged to review the crime prevention tips on the University website. Safety in NYC also will be addressed during orientation.

While NYU has great resources to help support student safety, a main component of the program is to experience college life in the city.  As such, students are responsible for getting to and from class on their own and they may—if they choose—leave the NYU campus during their free time. Students are advised to remain close to the campus area. Those who choose to leave the campus area must understand that the farther they are from the main campus, the more difficult it is for University and NYU School of Professional Studies staff to assist them. Students and their parents/guardians should discuss and decide upon appropriate boundaries and guidelines for travel off campus while attending the program.

Successful completion of any NYU School of Professional Studies High School Academy course will add to your admissions profile, but participation in the High School Academy does not guarantee admission to NYU or to any other university.
