Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student educational records. It applies to all Schools receiving funds under an applicable program. FERPA rights transfer to a student when they are 18 years of age or they attend a school past high school. Students may choose to waive their FERPA protections by signing a waiver form in person at the Registrar’s office.

All students must have medical insurance. Students with 9 or more credits are automatically enrolled; students with 1 or more credits may choose to enroll. If a student already has medical coverage, they will need to provide proof of their comparable coverage online.

New York State law requires students to show proof of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. NYU School of Engineering complies fully with the provisions of this law. The law applies to all students (graduate and undergraduate) born on or after January 1, 1957.
Immunization status is checked as part of registration for new students. New ﬁrst-year, transfer and graduate students who fail to comply (1) are barred from attending class (and are not entitled to any tuition refund); (2) do not receive grades; and (3) are denied further registration.
