Prepare for Classes

Congratulations on being admitted to Summer in NYC! In order to make sure you are ready for your first day of class please follow these steps:


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. 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

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.
