While you are at New York University you may wish to supplement your program or pursue a special interest by taking classes in other divisions of the University. The following procedures have been designed to help you learn what courses may be available to you within the guidelines of your school and academic program.
Check with your advisor about your school's policy governing registration in another division. You will need to know how many outside points your division allows. In some divisions, your advisor's written permission may be required.
Check the Bulletin of the division which offers the course you wish to take for the course description and information about prerequisites and permission requirements. If you have questions about specific requirements or need further information, you should meet with the appropriate liaison (listed below). In some divisions, you will need written permission from the respective liaison. Please check the registration information to see if written approval is required.
As part of NYU's commitment to increase the opportunities for undergraduates, the Undergraduate Advisement website is available to help students obtain accessible, accurate, and consistent information on issues related to academic advisement, as well as individual and cross-school registration. Here you will find, in an organized fashion, the array of programs, policies, and procedures relevant to undergraduates in their formulation of a meaningful curriculum. In addition to information regarding general advisement procedures, this site provides facts related to combined-degree, independent research, and study abroad programs.
