Part of your job at the admissions department of New York University may include corresponding with the students, especially notifying the new ones with accepted applications, so it is very important that you know how to write a great formal letter. Here is a helpful guide to writing an official NYU acceptance letter that will properly represent the prestigious school to the student whose life is about to change forever.
Format and Content
An official NYU acceptance letter format will contain approximately three paragraphs, starting with a nice congratulatory statement to the student. Give the student all the necessary information for his or her enrollment as well as the office’s contact information in case there are any problems. Close with a cordial admonition for the student to live up to the expectations formed based on his or her application and express appreciation for the choice of school. Write in a formal and concise manner on the school’s official letterhead and be sure to sign and date it properly as will be shown below.
If you are trying to come up with the right words with which to congratulate a new NYU student, seeing an example can help you get started. Here is an NYU acceptance letter sample letting a new student know that her application has been accepted and making sure she knows what steps to take next. It also thanks her for applying to NYU as her school of choice.
