Prepare for Classes

Registration for summer begins on February 16th. It’s best to find your courses through the Precollege course search found here. Make note of the 4-digit class number which you can enter directly into your shopping cart. Through the Student Center in Albert, click on the "Enroll" link on the left-hand side of the page and select classes to enter into your shopping cart. Be sure to use the search function on the right hand side of the course guide in order to narrow your search by subject, session, or by open/closed status. Please note: Precollege students must select courses with section numbers in the 60’s or 70’s only. Once your selected courses are in your shopping cart, confirm classes by clicking "Finish Enrolling." 

If you are interested in enrolling in more than one class, select "Add another class" and repeat the process. Students are allowed to take up to 8 credits per 6-week session. 

If you are blocked from registering for a course for any reason, please submit an Enrollment Request Form with the Academic Resource Center. You must include your full name and NYU ID Number (your N number) in all communications.

Detailed instructions can also be found in our Guide to Albert Registration

NYU Precollege students have the option to live on campus or to commute. Students who indicated an interest in housing their Precollege admissions application will receive an email with housing application instructions within a week of being accepted to the program. Space in housing is limited, so it is important to submit your housing application early.

Residential students are automatically enrolled in the 10-meal/week meal plan, the minimum required for Precollege. If you are interested in a higher meal plan, you can contact NYU Summer Housing to change your plan. For more information about housing and dining, visit NYU Summer Housing.

If you did not indicate an interest in campus housing in your admission application and wish to live on campus, please contact

To learn more about housing and meal plans, visit the Living on Campus web page. 

Once you are registered for your summer courses, you will be required to pay your bill. Notification regarding your tuition bill will be sent to your NYU e-mail address beginning in mid-April. 

For any registration activity that takes place after your bill deadline, credits or debits will be reflected in your student account. Specific payment dates will be outlined in your bill.  

You can access and pay your bill via Albert 24 hours a day.

  • Log in to your NYUHome account.
  • Open Albert.
  • Enter your student center.
  • Click on ‘View Bursar Account’ (bottom right hand corner under ‘Finances’).
  • Follow the instructions to make a payment.

NYU's preferred method of payment is by electronic check. There is no additional fee for this safe and secure service. If you are unable to pay using an electronic check, please select one of our other methods of payment.

If you would like to add a parent to your eSuite account, follow the directions found here. Account activity can be viewed by signing into eSuite and clicking on 'View Activity' under the 'My Account' tab.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Bursar at or 212-998-2806. You may also visit their website.

Note that, at NYU, failure to pay your bill on time will result in being de-enrolled from your courses. If you are de-enrolled from a waitlisted course, another student will automatically take your spot. If you are de-enrolled from a course that is full, you can only register again to be placed on the waitlist. For these reasons, students are strongly encouraged to pay their bills by the deadline to avoid being dropped from courses.

A list of required program forms can be found in the NYU Precollege Handbook. All forms must be submitted to the Office of University Programs no later than May 30, 2016.

The NYUCard is a multipurpose identification card issued to all registered students. For security purposes, all students are required to have their NYUCard in their possession at all times.

Simply submit a photo online and, once approved by the NYUCard Center, you can pick up your card in person. The NYUCard Center is at 7 Washington Place. You must bring a valid photo ID with you to get your card. Photos submitted and approved by 3:00 p.m. can be picked up the following business day. More information about submitting your NYUCard photo and information is available online

Students are asked to turn in their NYU ID Card at the end of their term of study (it will be deactivated at that time). If a student doesn’t return their ID card and returns for ANY future term he/she must produce their original card or pay a $15 replacement fee.
