1. Health Forms: Pratt requires both the immunization form and the health evaluation form. The immunization form (schedule of your vaccines) is due June 15 for fall entrance and is required for registration. You do not need a physical to submit the immunization form. Ask your doctor for the tracker form they keep to record your immunizations, and submit that if you are up to date. The health evaluation form is due at the same time. New York State requires that the immunization form be submitted before you can attend class. These forms are also available online at the Health and Counseling website.
2. Your final official transcript from your college if you have not already submitted it. If you will not graduate, please inform us immediately by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Your final official transcript as well as all official transcripts from college you attended (if you did not already submit an official copy to admissions) should be mailed to: Pratt Institute, Office of Graduate Admissions, 200 Willoughby Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11205.
Students whose final official transcripts are not received will be placed on a registration hold for the next semester. Avoid holds by taking care of it now.
3. Health insurance waiver, which is an online process. You will be able to waive your insurance online. Students are charged the health insurance fee, which will be waived after the drop/add period and upon proof of your own personal insurance. If you do not have health insurance, you may take it out on your own or you can apply for Pratt's health insurance at the same website above. Please note: you will be automatically signed up for Pratt's health insurance and will be billed unless you submit a health insurance waiver. If you waive insurance, you will see the charge on your bill until after the add-drop period. Special instructions will be available for MS Architecture students.
5. Pratt Email Address: The Admissions Office mails and emails a letter to all deposited students with their Pratt email address and ID (password). You may access the Pratt portal at my.pratt.edu. Make sure you change your password to something you will remember once you sign up for email at my.pratt.edu. You will begin receiving email from Pratt at your Pratt email account and you are responsible for checking that account regularly. You will receive orientation information there as well as other information on billing, etc. If you change your password and then do not remember it, you must contact the help desk at 718 636-3765. The admissions office is unable to help you with a lost password unless it is the original one. The help desk cannot help you if you email them so if you must email, email Chris Paisley at email@example.com, and he will obtain your lost password for you from the helpdesk and email it to you.
International Students Only: English Placement exam will be given in DeKalb Hall, Room 406. Dates and times will be posted online. Students may be waived from the exam for several reasons. More information on waivers and the exam are online.
Making Your Visa Appointment: Allow two to three weeks for us to issue the I-20 after we receive all the documents. Students should not make an appointment before the I-20 is issued. When the I-20 is mailed, a tracking number and the SEVIS number is sent to the student by e-mail. This is the time for the student to make the visa appointment.
Registration: You will receive a packet of information from the registrar late December. Please make sure you are familiar with the Add/Drop deadlines. After the add/drop period is over, you may not add additional courses. (Always add first and drop second so you don't drop below full-time status.)
International Students Only: You must submit your I-20 before you can register for classes. If you are waived from the English exam because you had a TOEFL over 600 or attended a US college for four years, the admissions office has notified the Intensive English Office.
Fall 2013 Billing:
You may view your online bill once you are registered at my.pratt.edu. Regardless of whether you have registered or not, your payment is due by January 1.
