Create a New Club

NYFA encourages all students to create student clubs that enhances and compliments NYFA’s mission and goals, campus community, and does not duplicate the efforts of a currently recognized student club.

    2. Not be placed on academic or behavioral probation or suspension.
    3. Be free from financial obligations to New York Film Academy - Los Angeles.
  2. At least one officer must attend Officer Training sponsored by Student Life.

Student Club Handbook

The New York Film Academy is proud to support each of these clubs and our office is eager to assist student leaders as they strive to build a stronger community. The “Student Club Handbook” is the first step in fulfilling this role.
