Program Details

Students at Wallkill studying in class

NYU maintains enrollment of at least 60 students each semester at Wallkill Correctional Facility. All of our courses are taught in person and in classrooms that are equipped with desks, white boards, and audiovisual technology. NYU faculty travel to the prison in Wallkill, New York weekly to teach 3-hour seminars. Courses and programming is offered four days a week.

In addition to offering free credit-bearing courses, students participate in non-credit professional workshops and academic tutoring offered by volunteers, faculty, and staff each semester. Workshops are developed in collaboration with a student council at Wallkill.

Our classroom wing and library includes a collection of over 300 academic books, writing resources, and professional guides donated by NYU Libraries, students, and faculty.
