NYU Resource Reminder: Wellness Exchange

Believe it or not, final exams are just around the corner.  If you are feeling the strain and stress of completing an intensive course this summer, be sure to take care of yourself!  Eat well, get plenty of rest, and if you need to vent or seek help, the Wellness Exchange is free to all students on campus.

The Wellness Exchange connects you to services at NYU that support your overall health and mental health needs.  The Exchange is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 212-443-9999, and it puts you in touch with professionals who can help you address day-to-day challenges and questions, as well as any crises you may encounter including depression, sexual assault, anxiety, and drug and alcohol abuse.

Courses can be stressful, New York City can be overwhelming, and there are so many health services and resources available on campus, it can sometimes be hard to keep track of them all!  Whenever you have questions or need to speak with someone, do not hesitate to contact the Wellness Exchange!  They are there to help.

Final Grades and NYU Transcripts

Final Grades
Once you have completed your summer courses, you can view your final grades via Albert by logging into NYUHome, entering the Student Center, and selecting “Grades” from the drop down menu.  For more information, see the NYU Registrar’s Viewing Grades guide.

Please allow up to two-three weeks after the summer session for your grades to be posted.  It can take faculty some time to evaluate everyone’s finals, papers, and overall academic work.  If your grades have not been posted in Albert after three weeks, you can email your professor to inquire about the status of grades.

NYU Transcripts
Academic transcripts from NYU are not automatically sent to you after you complete your courses and receive your final grades.  All students must submit a request for an official transcript if you wish to receive one.  To request a transcript to be mailed to your home or school, log-in to NYUHome, enter the Student Center, and select “Transcript-Official” from the drop down menu.  Transcripts can be requested at any time, although it is a good idea to wait until all of your final grades from the summer are posted online before you submit your request.  That way, you ensure the transcript you receive will be complete and up-to-date.

More information about requesting a transcript is available on the NYU Registrar website.

Get Outta Town!

Summer is great in New York City, but that may not stop you from feeling the itch to get out of the metropolis and enjoy the sunshine on a beach or go on a hike or head anywhere beyond the urban sprawl.  So, be like a true New Yorker and head out of town for a day!

Resource Reminder: Freeseums

NYU Ticket Central may now be closed, but that doesn’t mean the window of student discount opportunity has shut in your face forever!  For those of you wishing to see a new museum farther off the beaten path, like Museo del Barrio or the Rubin Museum (NYC is more than just the Met, MoMA, and AMNH!), then use your NYUCard for free admission to a freeseum.  There are amazing museums out there of all sorts, and they would love to have you visit!
