Online Orientation
The online orientation (coming soon!) highlights information found in the Spring in New York Student Handbook.  It addresses dates and deadlines, what you need to do before classes begin to prepare for the start of your studies, and information about academic advising and resources on campus.  All students are asked to watch the online orientation and review the handbook before the start of class.

Spring in New York Student Handbook
The Student Handbook (coming soon!) is available to download or print.  It contains all the information you need to know to have a successful semester, from dates and deadlines to academic procedures, from housing and dining to getting around campus and the city and how to find out what’s going on in New York City.  It is recommended that all students download the Handbook and read it prior to the start of class and use it as a reference during the spring semester.
