Registering for a Science Pre-Requisite Through the Museum of Natural History
Students who need to complete an undergraduate science pre-requisite will be notified by the Admissions Office at the time of their acceptance. Bank Street Students have the option for completing this requirement through the American Museum of Natural History. Please visit the Museum's Seminar On Science web page for more information.
Submitting Immunization Reports
New York State law requires students enrolled in 6 or more credits to provide Bank Street with proof of immunization for Mumps, Measles, and Rubella before they begin classes. The Student Immunization Report form should be submitted to the Registrar's Office. Copies of medical records may be provided instead of having a physician's signature on the form. Students who do not have access to their original immunization records may contact their physician and schedule a titer blood test, which will verify past immunizations. In addition, New York State law requires students to confirm they have received information regarding Meningococcal Meningitis disease.
Students are invited to view their textbook requirements and make purchases online via textbookx.com. Directions to help navigate the online store are available through my.bankstreet.edu. Graduate School textbooks are not sold through the Bank Street bookstore.
Village Copier (located at 118th and Amsterdam) provides course packet services for Graduate School courses. Graduate students purchase course packets directly from Village Copier. Village Copier can be contacted at 212-666-0600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
After newly-accepted students enroll in classes for the first time, they will receive a communication from the Help Desk within a week detailing the instructions for accessing, as well as the terms and agreements of, their student email addresses with Bank Street. All students are given an @bankstreet.edu email address and all electronic communications from the College will be sent to the student email accounts. Students are expected to bear the responsibility of receiving their College email, either by logging on to their @bankstreet.edu account regularly, or by setting up email forwarding to a private email address. For any questions regarding a Bank Street email account, please contact the Help Desk at (212) 875-4642.
