Part on Part 1.1 New Student Orientation Part 1.2 FERPA

Important Information & Policies Website:

Once you deposit and confirm your arrival for the fall you will be invited to experience New Student Orientation at NYU-Poly. Be prepared for fun, informative, and meaningful events and programs, all geared toward you as you begin your journey with us. Orientation will provide incoming students with academic advisement as well as the opportunity to meet other new students, learn more about NYU-Poly resources, and fully get ready for their first semester. New Student Orientation is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 26, 2013 with NYU-Poly’s Convocation Ceremony and will run until Friday, August 30, 2013. Online registration will open Monday, July 15, 2013.

What You (and Your Parents) Should Know about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Website:

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of a student’s educational records. Under FERPA, NYU-Poly may release “directory information” to third parties outside of NYU-Poly without prior written consent from the student. At NYU-Poly, directory information includes: Name, dates of attendance, class, previous institution(s) attended, major field of study, enrollment status (full-, half-, part-time status, etc), degree(s) conferred (including dates), honors and awards (including dean’s list), past and present participation in officially recognized sports and activities (including positions held and official statistics related to such participation and performance), e-mail address and NetID. [Important. See notes (1) and (2) below.] (1) E-mail address and NetID are directory information for internal purposes only and will not be made available to the general public except in specified directories from which students may opt out. (2) Under federal law, address information, telephone listings, and age are also considered directory information for military recruitment purposes. Address refers to “physical mailing address” and e-mail address. A student has the right to “opt out” of the provision of directory information to third parties. To do so, the student must contact the Registrar’s Office in person. Under FERPA, you have the right to review and inspect your educational records. If you wish to allow a third party (your parents, a foundation, a government, or governmental agency) access to your educational records, you must sign a consent form that waives your FERPA rights. The “Waiver of FERPA Rights” form found on the website at may be used to waive your FERPA rights. Note, however, that the form may not be mailed but must be presented in person to the Registrar’s Office.


Part 1.3 communications

Important Communication Changes NYU-Poly will be transitioning student email to NYU’s Google email application over the summer. • May 22, 2013- June 1, 2013: All new students will be receiving a second ( email account. • The new ( email and activation instructions will be sent to your NYU-Poly e-mail address. • Once you have activated your NYU email you should discontinue use of your temporary NYU-Poly Microsoft email and use the NYU email application as your official NYU-Poly email account.

Summer Communications You will be receiving a variety of notices from a number of different offices at NYU-Poly over the course of the summer. • These notices will initially be sent to your NYU-Poly e-mail account. • May 22, 2013- June 1, 2013: All new students will be receiving a second ( email account. • Once you have activated your NYU email you should discontinue use of your temporary NYU-Poly Microsoft email. • Make sure that you check your NYU-Poly e-mail, or later in the summer, your NYU email account, regularly. • We strongly encourage you to access your email accounts directly rather than forwarding to another e-mail provider as the reliability of forwarding is sometimes questionable and you may miss important information/reminders. Your NYU-Poly e-mail account was sent to you in the letter acknowledging that we received your application for admission. If you are unable to locate this information, simply call the admissions office at (718) 637-5955 for assistance.

Other Accounts Approximately one week after receiving this “Enrollment QuickStart Guide,” you will receive an e-mail from IT giving you directions on accessing three additional online systems: • MyPoly • PeopleSoft • VPN These systems allow you to enroll in classes, check your schedule, view your financial aid and view and pay your bill online. Because you will be registering for your fall classes online, it is imperative that you follow the instructions in the e-mail in a timely manner. Should you experience difficulties in activating your system access after receiving IT’s e-mail instructions, feel free to contact the Information Systems Help Desk at (718) 260-3123 or e-mail the Help Desk at


NYU-Poly’s Communication Policy In our on-going campaign to be environmentally aware by “going green” and to increase the safety, efficiency and speed of our communication with students, NYU-Poly has instituted a communication policy in which NYU-Poly will no longer use paper communication with students. All NYU-Poly students have a Polytechnic Institute of New York University e-mail account and access to MyPoly for institutional information, concerning the classes for which they are registered and organizational information and services. Because of this robust electronic access, NYU-Poly faculty and administration will contact students with important information and notices electronically only through the various communication technologies and environments provided by the Institute. To ensure that students both receive and are responsive to important notices from all departments and offices at NYU-Poly, students need to observe the following policy: • The NYU-Poly and NYU Google e-mail accounts are a student’s official point of contact. Students are expected to directly access one of these accounts at least once each school day. • Students must be aware of notices posted on MyPoly. It is the student’s responsibility to check this portal during the add/drop period of registration and regularly during the term in order to verify the accuracy of his/her schedule and to read any official Institute notices. Schedules should be verified by students at least once during the first two weeks of the term and once after mid-semester. The Academic Calendar that delineates the different registration periods for new students is also available on MyPoly and information on future semesters is available on the Registrar’s website: Students are required to be aware of course-related information available on their MyPoly course environment, such as course syllabi, resources, calendar, assignment expectations, special announcements, grades, etc.

About the NYU-Poly OneCard Website:

As an NYU-Poly student, you are required to have an NYU-Poly photo ID card to gain access to all buildings on campus and to swipe your NYU-Poly ID card at the reader to gain access to each building.

Never lend your ID card to anyone for any reason, as you will be subject to disciplinary action for fraudulent use of the NYU-Poly ID card.


About your netid All NYU-Poly faculty and staff members, as well as students enrolled in degree or diploma programs, are provided with an NYU NetID (Network IDentification). Your NetID is a combination of your initials and a few random numbers, e.g., aqe123, and is usually printed on the back of your NYU-Poly OneCard. Your NetID is your key to many NYU online resources, including, for eligible community members, NYUHome. Your NetID is also used to create your ( email address. (e.g., Your NetId is the first part of the Poly email address. (e.g., Your NYU address, when enabled, will be your NetId with the suffix (e.g.,

How to Get Your NYU-Poly ID OneCard Photos Admitted students NetIDs will be NYU Google enabled. Once your NetId is enabled you will receive instructions on how to activate your account. New undergraduate students will be required to upload their own ID photo on After a photo has been uploaded, students will receive a notification to their NYU email account outlining details and their next steps. Submitted photos must meet the following criteria: • Your photo must be against a white background. • You must be facing the camera. • The top of your head must be visible in the photo. • No hats or dark glasses. • The final photo, after cropping, must be at least 480 pixels wide by 600 pixels high.

Distribution New Undergraduate Resident Students will receive their photo ID on move-in day, Sunday, August 25, 2013. All other students will receive their ID card during New Student Orientation week. (Monday, August 26, 2013–Friday, August 30, 2013) In order to receive your Photo ID you must bring proof of registration for the current semester (class schedule) and proof of identification (State Diver’s License, State Photo ID or Passport).

Lost or Stolen ID Cards Replacement ID cards are available from the Facilities Management Office.

Then, bring your receipt, alternate photo ID and class schedule to JB 152 for a replacement. Individuals with stolen IDs who possess a police report may have the $20 fee waived.


Part 1.4 Computer requirements


NYU-Poly requires that each student have a laptop computer. Please visit our website to review this year’s minimum requirements for laptops. It is imperative that you read the specifications very carefully before purchasing your laptop. For your convenience, we have made arrangements with the NYU Computer Store for new students to purchase a recommended laptop that already meets these requirements; instructions on how to purchase the recommended laptop from the NYU Computer Store can be found on our website as well. Students may drop off their laptops at the NYU-Poly Laptop Help Desk to have the required software (NYU-Poly Software Package) loaded on their laptops beginning in July and also during the New Student Orientation. Please make sure to have your NYU-Poly/Student ID number with you. For questions, please contact the NYUPoly Laptop Help Desk at or (718) 260-3368.

New Student Check–in Day: Sunday, August 25, 2013

Standards To view the Residence Life Handbook/Code of Conduct please visit: NYU-Poly is a diverse community of people with many racial, ethnic, social and economic backgrounds, national origins, religious and political beliefs, physical abilities and sexual orientations. We celebrate our rich on-campus community. All of our activities and programs benefit from our engagement and interaction with one another, as we affirm and uphold the countless backgrounds and personalities that forge one collective community. At NYU-Poly, we strongly believe that actions demonstrate one’s commitment to respecting differences. Therefore, everyone who lives in or visits the Residence Hall must understand that we do not tolerate bigotry, threats, intimidation, violence, or harassment against any member of our community. We insist that every member of our community commits to the principles, described in the Residence Life Handbook and Code of Conduct, which we have established to promote the personal and academic growth, safety and well-being of our students.


Part 1.6 Advocacy

Advocacy Services E-mail: Phone: Visit: Office (718) 260-3046 Judith Simonsen LC 240, Dibner Building Monday–Friday; 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

During the semester you may become ill and, as a consequence miss an examination. If that should happen you need to obtain medical documentation. Please look at your medical note before leaving the physician’s office, and ensure that it includes a medical diagnosis. Tell the office you will waive your HIPPA rights, as you missed an exam and the school requires medical information in order to reschedule. Bring the note to Judith Simonsen, along with contact information for your professors and we will inform the professors that you have a documented absence. The same process is true for absences caused for other family emergencies, such as a death in the family. Please note that students must provide 15 days written notice of intent to observe a religious holiday.

Part 1.7 Students with Disabilities

Disability Services Website: E-mail: Phone: Visit: Office (718) 260-3046 Judith Simonsen LC 240, Dibner Building Monday–Friday; 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

About the Law Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973: Handicapped Persons’ Rights Under Federal Law provides disabled students protection from discrimination and entitles them to an equal educational opportunity.

NYU-Poly’s Commitment At NYU-Poly, we do not discriminate in our admissions practices and base acceptance decisions primarily on academic records. We are committed to assisting students with disabilities in developing the academic skills necessary to fully participate in NYU-Poly student programs. To that end, we provide services to students with disabilities based on their individual assessments as outlined under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We are also committed to working with students with disabilities to assist them to become effective selfadvocators. Services for students with disabilities do not include the waiving of academic course requirements, nor the changing of course subject matter.


Responsibility as a Student with a Disability Although not every student with a disability requires services, registering with the Office of Student Affairs is advised. Once you are accepted to NYU-Poly, you should contact the Office of Student Affairs for an appointment to discuss your request for services. Be prepared to submit documentation verifying your disability. Do not wait until after classes have begun and you are experiencing difficulty before you contact Student Affairs. If you fail to contact Student Affairs in a timely manner, your opportunity for services can be delayed and under such circumstances, your instructors may not be able to make any adjustments to accommodate you.

Confidentiality The only information about your disability that is shared with other members of the NYU-Poly community (instructors, counselors) is its categories, such as: legally blind, deaf or hearing impaired, medically impaired, physically disabled, or learning disabled.

Part 1.8 Academic Honesty Expectations

E-mail: Phone: Visit: Office (718) 260-3046 Judith Simonsen LC 240, Dibner Building Monday–Friday; 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Code of conduct As a member of the NYU-Poly community, you are expected to exhibit honesty, integrity and fairness in your academic work and interaction with others. The entire community shares the responsibility to secure and respect general conditions conducive to academic honesty. Individual academic departments may develop and publicize supplemental guidelines in conformity with Institute policies for academic competence and honesty appropriate to their fields of study. Academic dishonesty is treated as a moral and intellectual offense against the academic community and is not tolerated. You and all members of the NYU-Poly community are responsible for reading and familiarizing yourself with the Institute Policy on Academic Dishonesty found in the Code of Conduct. Academic dishonesty is an act of fraud, which may include misrepresentation, deceit, falsification, or trickery of any kind that is done by the student with the purpose, intent, or expectation of influencing a grade or other academic evaluation. Academic dishonesty also includes forgery and falsification of NYU-Poly academic documents, intentionally impeding or damaging the


academic work of others, or assisting other students in acts of dishonesty. Common examples of academically dishonest behavior include, but are not limited to, the following: cheating, fabrication, facilitating academic dishonesty, plagiarism and unauthorized collaboration. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the code of conduct. Please refer to the Code of Conduct for the complete Institute Policy on Academic Dishonesty, which can be found online at: Website:

Part 1.9 Health Insurance


Polytechnic Institute of New York University requires that all students who are registered for nine (9) or more credits or are considered full-time students have medical care insurance. We are pleased to provide students with a comprehensive health insurance plan option. This option is for students who do not have insurance, whose current family health coverage is about to expire, or whose current health insurance is with an HMO or restricted PPO out of the area. Additionally, we require that all of our international students be enrolled in the school sponsored accident and sickness plan. The NYU-Poly Student Health Insurance Plan is a low-cost Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan that meets school, state and federal requirements and provides important coverage at a reasonable cost. The plan brochure, enrollment information, insurance card and forms for the 2013-14 academic year will be available only through a link on the NYU-Poly website at (This site will be available to you not later than June 1 and we will notify you when it “goes live.�)


For students with 9 or more credits or who are considered full-time, a health insurance fee of *$499 for the NYU-Poly Student Health Insurance Plan will appear on your fall tuition bill and *$499will appear on your spring tuition bill. This covers the annual cost of the insurance. If you are a graduate student taking less than 9 credits, and are considered full-time, please contact Student Accounts to make sure that you are properly enrolled in the program. ALL students MUST go to the above website and either 1) officially enroll in the plan or 2) waive the plan. If you have your own comparable health coverage and wish to waive the plan (i.e., have the fee removed from your bill), you must complete the online waiver form located at the above website. The waiver is valid for one year. (Please note that the fee will only be waived if you complete the online waiver form by September 11, 2013 for the fall and for new students in the spring, February 4, 2014. After this date the fee will remain on your account and will not be removed.) *We do not expect these rates to change unless there is a material change in federal or state laws or regulations that require a significant modification to the plan of benefits.

Part 1.10 Counseling and Wellness Services

Counseling - Consultation, Counseling and Psychotherapy Website: E-mail: Phone: Visit: Office (718) 260-3456 24-hour NYU Wellness Exchange Hotline (212) 443-9999 232 Dibner Building Monday–Friday; 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Current Students NYU-Poly’s Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS) offers a variety of services to help students achieve their maximum potential, both academically and professionally, as well as socially and emotionally. If you are an NYU-Poly student, you can meet with a professional staff member, a licensed psychiatrist, or social worker (or with a supervised trainee), for consultation and referral, short-term individual counseling and psychotherapy, medication consultation, and group counseling and psychotherapy. Consultation, counseling and psychotherapy are confidential and paid for as part of your registration fees, so there is no additional cost to you. There is no fee for medication consultation for students with NYU-Poly student insurance. Students with other insurance will be billed for the applicable co-pay.

Family, Faculty and Staff We also offer consultation to friends, family, faculty and staff members who are concerned about an NYU-Poly student. (Note: We cannot disclose information about a particular student without his/her written consent, nor can we disclose whether or not a student has or is receiving services at CWS.)


NYU-Poly Community We are also available as an educational resource and present workshops on a variety of topics to NYU-Poly organizations, clubs and departments. All legal/ethical limits to confidentiality will be either discussed with you by a staff member or presented to you in writing prior to your disclosing any information to us.

Part 1.11 Career Services and Internships

Website: E-mail: Phone: Visit: (718) 260-3650 359 Jacobs Administration Building

The Wasserman Center for Career Development will connect you with leading companies that are searching for highly skilled, market-ready individuals prepared to take on the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Our offices help undergraduate and graduate students seek positions where their refined technical, analytical and communication skills can best be put to use.

Career Counseling and Career Development Seminars Knowing how to conduct an internship or job search is key to landing the opportunity you want. Through one-on-one career counseling and group seminars, NYU-Poly students acquire effective job search skills designed to complement their successful in-classroom experiences. Writing an effective résumé, preparing for a career fair and acing the interview are just some of the topics addressed by career center staff.

Internship Opportunities Internships allow students to gain real-world experience while giving employers a chance to identify future talent. Students are encouraged to participate in one or more internships before they graduate, demonstrating to employers NYU-Poly’s high standards of excellence. These professional experiences give students an edge over the competition and have the potential to turn into full-time opportunities following graduation.

NYU CareerNet, Career Fairs and On-Campus Recruiting NYU-Poly students can connect to NYU CareerNet, our online internship and job search engine. Using this valuable database, students can submit a cover letter and résumé directly to employers. Additionally, internship and job seekers can meet with hiring companies at career fairs and even arrange on-campus interviews with these employers. Participating companies range from small entrepreneurial startups to mid-sized businesses to internationally recognized major corporations.


Part 1.12 Academic Support Services

The Polytechnic Tutoring Center (PTC) Website: The Polytechnic Tutoring Center, often referred to simply as the “PTC,” is dedicated to giving students the personalized attention they need to help them achieve their academic goals at NYU-Poly. Our services are available to all students free of charge. We offer tutoring in biology, chemistry, computer science and physics for first and second-year undergraduate courses during the academic year. We also provide writing, reading and English language help in our Writing Center to undergraduate and graduate students at all levels.

Who are the PTC Tutors? Our tutors for biology, chemistry, computer science and physics are NYU-Poly students who have good mastery of the subjects that they tutor.

PartTw Part 2.1 Bookstore & Textbooks

NYU-Poly Services & How To Use Them Website: Once you have registered for your classes, you will be able to find the required and recommended textbooks for your classes through the NYU Bookstore website. All you need are the catalog numbers for all your classes, and the bookstore’s website will provide you with a list of books required for your courses. Step 1: Have the catalog numbers ready for all your classes. You can find these numbers on your student schedule, which is available through PS Data once you are registered. You can also find these numbers on the class schedule page on the NYU-Poly website ( Here are sample catalog numbers for NYU-Poly courses: CS 5403 section 1328 CM 1014 section 1689 DM 6153 section 2322 *If your catalog number is only 3 digits, then add a “0” (zero) to the end of it: Example CS.392 becomes CS.3920 Step 2: On the NYU Bookstore Home page, click on the link: “Textbook Inquiry and Ordering.” This link will bring you to a page titled “Find a Book/Inquiry and Ordering.” Step 3: Once you’re on the “Find a Book/Inquiry and Ordering” page, locate the heading “By Course.”

Select the term “Fall 11.” In the “Department” field enter your department initials, in the “Course ID” field, enter your four-digit catalog number and in the “Section #” field, enter your four-digit class number, then click on the “Go” button. Example:

Step 4: This will provide you with a list of the course materials required for the course you have entered. You will need to repeat steps 1-3 for each course you are taking. From this list, you may choose to purchase your books either through the NYU Bookstore or via an alternate method. Popular online booksellers that students have used in the past are:, and If you complete the process and there are no textbooks listed, it means that the professor has chosen not to use the NYU Bookstore for his/her particular class. You can then find any needed textbooks by visiting or on the first day of class. Should you have any questions about the book ordering process, please contact the NYU Main Bookstore: 18 Washington Place New York, NY 10003 Phone: (212) 998-4667 Fax: (212) 995-4118 E-mail:


Part 2.2 Paying Your Bills

Website: If you are an enrolled NYU-Poly student, your tuition bill is sent electronically. Polytechnic Institute of NYU no longer sends printed tuition statements. We adopted electronic billing to allow you and users you’d like to authorize (parents, for example) to: • Receive e-mails at your NYU-Poly e-mail address when new statements are available to view • View and pay bills online; and • Track 12 months of previous tuition statements

How to Use Electronic Billing There are two ways to access your account: • Directly: • Via PS DATA 1. Log in with your NYU-Poly ID and password 2. Click on Student Center 3. Select the View your Statement button which will take you directly into CASHNet, our electronic billing system

Important Things to Know • You will only receive an e-mail notification of a new statement if you have a balance on your account. • If you made a recent payment, it may not be reflected on your electronic billing statement. Payments made to your account after the statement date will be reflected in your next electronic billing statement. * In addition to viewing and paying your bill, you may also sign up a parent or other user to have access to your electronic bill.



Part 2.3 How to Register for Classes

First-Year Student Registration Process On-Campus: Off-Campus: Registering for classes involves a multi-step process that takes many factors into consideration, ultimately yielding a combination of classes that are reflective of the student’s intended major. All first-year students are responsible for registering for classes, and will complete this process in consultation with their academic adviser. Specific guidance on how to select and register for appropriate courses will be provided throughout the summer. Below is an overview of the steps students need to complete in order to register for fall classes:

English Placement exam A select group of students will be required to take the English placement exam, a campus based assessment, and will be notified by the Admissions Office of their status, on or before May 30th. Upon taking the exam, students will be notified of their fall English class. Students required to take the English Placement Exam must do so before they can enroll in their fall English class. An English course marker, a placeholder for the actual course, will be available to those who are not able to take the exam before registration begins. A schedule adjustment will be required, once the placement score has been determined, with the English class replacing the course marker.

Math Diagnostic exam All students must complete the math diagnostic exam, or submit AP scores of a 4 or 5 on the calculus AB or BC exams, in order to determine their fall class. The math diagnostic exam is an on-campus assessment, and will take place on various dates before the beginning of the semester. While students are encouraged to complete the diagnostic before the beginning of the registration period, students will be allowed to enroll in classes before completing this diagnostic, using a math course marker to reserve a space in their schedule for math. Students may go online after they complete the math diagnostic to make a schedule adjustment, dropping the math course marker and adding the actual course.

Major Confirmation Students will be allowed to go online to enroll in classes based on their major. During the first week of June, students will receive a correspondence from NYU-Poly, asking them to confirm their intended major. Any request to change the listed major must be sent to the Registrar’s Office by June 7th.

AP and Transfer Credits Credits received as a result of an AP exam and/or previous college experience may allow the recipient to be exempt from certain first-year courses; these credits will be posted to the student’s transcript. Students should arrange to have their official test results released by the College Board to Polytechnic Institute of NYU, Code: 2668. Scores received after July 11th may be applied to the student’s academic record (i.e. transcript), but will not be considered in the creation of the fall schedule.


Registration Webinar All students will be required to attend an online advisement session, where they will receive information on their first-year courses, how they are connected to their intended major, and how to select and enroll in the appropriate fall courses. All webinars will be scheduled by major—students should attend accordingly— and will be archived online for future reference

Online Registration Registration will begin on Friday, July 12th by appointment. Registration appointments will be determined by the student’s major. Open enrollment will follow the scheduled appointment period, where students, regardless of their major, will be able to go online and make adjustments to their schedule. Students will receive additional information about the aforementioned steps by the first week of June. Students who are admitted into the General Studies, HEOP, and Honors programs may have additional items to consider during the registration process, and will receive supplemental information to guide their enrollment experience. Any and all questions about the registration process for first-year students can be directed to the Academic Advisement Center (AAC).

Part 2.5 How to Work On-Campus

Student Employment Options: • NYU-Poly offers a wide variety of part-time employment opportunities. • All jobs are posted in the NYU CareerNet database at the beginning of each semester. • Visit the Wasserman Center for Career Development at NYU-Poly to have your résumé and cover letter reviewed. You will need these documents to apply for open positions. • Access NYU-Poly’s online job posting site, NYU CareerNet, to review posted positions and apply. • Meet with a career advisor for additional job search tips and strategies.

Federal Work Study (WKS): • If a Federal Work-Study award is included in your Financial Aid package, you have the opportunity to apply for both on-campus and off-campus employment through this federally funded program.


What to do when you get a campus job: For US Citizens and Permanent Residents: Once an offer of employment has been extended, the next steps are as follows: 1. Students go to Human Resources (HR) to complete an I-9 form. U.S. Federal Law requires the I-9 be completed by ALL employees within three days of hire. 2. Once the I-9 form is completed, the student employee will be given a signed “Certification of Employment” by HR. This certification identifies the effective date that the student is eligible to work. 3. Students are required to provide the supervisor with the (yellow) copy of the Certification of Employment. The department is responsible for completing and submitting the electronic Personnel Action Form (PAF) to record the employment. Once HR receives the PAF, HR will review and begin processing of the new hire.

Foreign Nationals / International Students: • Confirm your immigration status and/or employment eligibility with the Office of International Student and Scholars (OISS) prior to seeking any employment at NYU-Poly. OISS will provide you with an “On-campus Employment Verification Letter,” which shows that you are eligible to work on-campus.

Getting paid: • All hourly (bi-weekly) student workers are required to complete time sheets to record their work hours and meal breaks. Student employees are responsible for completing their time sheets in a timely and accurate manner.

Immunization Form 2013–2014 STUDENT IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS New York State requires students attending colleges and universities in New York to comply with Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167 for measles, mumps, rubella and meningitis. These laws apply to all students registered for 6 or more credits and include graduates, undergraduates, and commuter, resident, domestic and international students. Students must submit proper proof of immunity to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions within (30) thirty days of their first class. Students who do not submit the required information will be excluded from class, the residence hall, and prohibited from further registration at NYU-Poly. Proof of immunity is as follows:

MEASLES (Rubeola) Two dates of immunization Both dates must be at least 28 days apart. A positive measles titer (blood test) or a disease statement from the diagnosing physician also constitutes valid proof of immunity.

MUMPS One date of immunization The date must be on or after your first birthday. A positive mumps titer (blood test) or a disease statement from the diagnosing physician also constitutes valid proof of immunity.

RUBELLA (German measles) One date of immunization The date must be on or after your first birthday. A positive rubella titer (blood test) is also an acceptable proof of immunity in lieu of an immunization date.

MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS Medical exemptions can be demonstrated by having a licensed physician or nurse practitioner certify in writing that one or more of the required immunizations may be detrimental to the student’s health or is otherwise medically contraindicated. The requirements will then be waived until such immunization is determined no longer detrimental or otherwise medically contraindicated. Students who have temporary medical exemptions will be kept on a separate listing and will be notified in writing of the need to submit immunization records after the temporary medical exemption date.

RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS Religious exemptions can be demonstrated by submitting a written and signed statement from the student, or in the event the student is a minor, from his/her parents or guardians, that they hold sincere and genuine religious beliefs, which prohibit immunization of the students. This statement must be detailed enough to prove to the Institute that the beliefs are religious, not philosophical, and sincerely and genuinely held.
