Can I choose where I can complete my residency year?

The process is different depending on which residency option you chose: full-time or part-time. 

Full-Time Option

With the full-time option, you have an opportunity to select preferred partner districts and charters in your application from the full-time Teacher Residency district and charter partners list. You will undergo a two-step process: step one is acceptance from NYU Steinhardt; step two is when you will interview with the district/charter partner(s). They must decide to hire you in order to secure your placement in a school. You can interview with multiple districts/charter partners and, if you are offered positions in multiple places, it is your choice where you ultimately go.

Part-Time Option

With the part-time option, you have an opportunity to select preferred partner districts in your application from the part-time Teacher Residency district partners list. Upon acceptance from NYU Steinhardt, you will be asked to fill out a short survey for the NYU Steinhardt Field Placement Office related to distance from available district partner locations. It is your choice where you ultimately go.
