Virtual Spring 2023 Schedule
Parents should not schedule activities with their students during the Orientation week(s) and weekend(s) beginning the first day of In-person Orientation through Sunday, February 26th.
Above dates are subject to change.
Our required Hybrid Orientation will be a mix of pre-recorded sessions, Zoom presentations, group, or departmental meetings and in-person activities. Orientation schedules will be available to students on the first day of Orientation. It is recommended that each student dedicate between 4-6 hours each week for Orientation assignments and meetings, as well as spending at least a small portion of each day logging in to the online platform (for emails, notifications, etc.). Our Hybrid Orientation will also include optional activities to introduce students to a wide variety of resources to help prepare them for the rigors of classwork. Should you have any questions regarding the Orientation process, please feel free to reach out to your Admissions Advisor or the Orientation Planning Committee (NYOrientation@amda.edu).
HEALTH AND WELLNESS FORMS:
AMDA's two Health and Wellness forms can be found below, both forms are required in order for you to begin classes.
The Student Health Certificate can be completed by the student, if under 18 years old a parent or guardian will need to sign the form. This form is to collect your health insurance information, emergency contact information and general health history.
The Physician health certificate needs to be completed by a Physician. This form will collect your vaccination history and serve as a pre-admissions physical to ensure you are able to safely participate in the program and attend classes.
Students will reserve their move-in time through Sign Up Genius (provided in their housing application email
sent 60 days before the start of the term).
Thursday, February 23rd – 7am-2pm EST
