Each application is slightly different, but generally these are the requirements. Your liaison will let you know exactly what’s needed.
NY requires tenants to earn 40x monthly rent in order to legally qualify for an apartment lease. However, Most students have a guarantor who qualifies on their behalf.
Parents, guardians, friends, and relatives, can all serve as guarantors as long as they earn 80x your portion of the monthly rent. If this is not the case we work with 3rd party guarantor services who can help you out.
After putting in your apartment application the next step after approval is signing your lease. Generally there are 2 ways to sign the lease.
