International Students Only:
*All international students must plan to arrive to check in with the Office of International Affairs (OIA).
International students will need to attend only ONE "Mandatory check in and clearance" and take the English exam on the January 16.
1. Health Forms: Pratt requires both the immunization form and the health evaluation form. The immunization form (schedule of your vaccines) is due January 1 for springl 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 use 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 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 using the online process. If you waive insurance, you will see the charge on your bill until after the add-drop period.
4. Pratt Email Address: You will receive an email with your Pratt email address and Onekey login and ID (password). You may access the Pratt portal at mypratt located at http://www.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.
International Students Only: English Placement exams will be given on January 16 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 is online.
Making Your Visa Appointment: Allow six 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 to make the visa appointment.
Registration: You will receive information on registration in 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.
Spring 2014 Billing:
You may view your online bill once you are registered at my.pratt.edu. Your payment is due by January 1 or immediately after you register. Payments received after that are subject to a $75 late fee and a 1.25 percent interest charge monthly. Accounts that are not paid by the deadline or are not on a payment plan will be placed on a bursar hold and students will not be permitted to add or drop courses or register for the next term. You may pay your bill online at my.pratt.edu. It is your responsibility to check your account online regularly (monthly) to make sure you do not owe a balance. Read more about billing.
Room Assignments and Meal Plans (Spring and Fall): Room assignments are mailed out in December for spring entrants and July for fall entrants. You should also have an email at your Pratt account with information on your assignment. Residential and other students who wish to purchase a meal plan may do so during orientation if they did not already sign up. Note: the meal plan is required in certain residence halls. You may download information on Meal Plans. You will receive an email at your Pratt account with information on dining options at Pratt.
PrattCard: Your PrattCard is your Pratt ID card, which you receive at orientation. To find out more about the PrattCard, visit my.pratt.edu (PrattCard is on left side of page) and login. You may use the site to add value to your Pratt Bucks or Existing Meal Plan accounts and the funds will be available for immediate use. It is important to recognize that Pratt Bucks may not be used in the dining facilities and Meal Plan points cannot be used in the Bookstore or print labs so choose carefully where you want your money to go. You will have the ability to grant access to four additional people to add funds to your accounts.
Shipping Items Before You Arrive: You will receive an email containing your campus mailbox and mailing instructions. The mail center will be open on check-in day for you to retrieve your things.
Deferring to another term or withdrawing: If for some reason, you must withdraw from Pratt or wish to request a deferral to the following year, please contact admissions in order that we may stop the early registration process for you and avoid billing you. Send an email to Young Hah at email@example.com.
