Academic English Requirement in Liberal Studies (AELS)
The AELS course is designed to provide supplemental support for students, linked to the curriculum taught in your other courses. It will help with academic writing and contributing to class discussions, especially for those who might have less experience with the kinds of readings assigned in Liberal Studies.
Please note the AELS requirement is intended for a single semester only. Assuming you earn a passing grade in the course, the requirement will be satisfied. Please be assured the AELS requirement does not affect the expectations for completing your degree on time, but simply offers additional support to ensure academic success. As a non-credit course too, it will not otherwise impact your credit allowance, tuition charges, or potential study options.
If you have any questions regarding this course please contact Candace Sumner-Robinson, Assistant Director of Advising and Diversity, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Liberal Studies Peer Mentoring Program
Through the Liberal Studies Peer Mentorship Program, international first-year students enrolled in Liberal Studies will be paired with an upper-level peer mentor to help them transition to college life, while providing academic and personal connections and support.

International Student Luncheon and Workshops
During Welcome Week, Liberal Studies Academic Advising and Student Affairs provides all first-year international students with helpful information and resources to ensure a successful start to life at NYU. Students have an opportunity to participate in an informational workshops hosted by the Office of Global Services that addresses important information regarding visas, travel, and on and off campus employment.
