Note: For newly admitted students - Please be advised that most newly admitted students do not enroll for fall 2013 classes in April. They will first receive information from their college about advisement and orientation. At that time, they will be instructed on the registration process. The following information, though applicable to all students when they are eligible to enroll for classes, is specifically targeted for returning students.
Registration for Fall semester 2013 began on Monday, April 22, 2013. This message contains information on how registration works. Classes on Washington Square begin on Tuesday, September 3, 2013. Classes at study away sites may start on a different date.
Please note: If you have applied to graduate at the end of either the Spring 2013 semester or the Summer 2013 semester, you cannot register for Summer 2013 unless you have been admitted to a new degree program.
Preparing to Register
- Check your registration appointment day and time. Go to the Student Center in Albert and click on "Enrollment Dates."
- Check for registration holds. All holds must be resolved and removed in order to enroll in classes for Fall semester. There are many reasons why you may have a hold, including a past due balance or an advisor hold. Go to the Student Center in Albert and look at the "Holds" section on the right hand side of the page. Click on "Details" to learn about any holds you may have, how to resolve the hold, and which NYU office you can contact if you have questions.
- Update your contact information. Go to the Student Center in Albert and click on "Personal Information." All students are required to have an "NYU Emergency Alert" cellular phone number and emergency contact information to register for Fall 2013.
Registering for Classes and the Enrollment Shopping Cart
You can put all of the courses in which you want to enroll in a shopping cart prior to your registration appointment time. Go to the Student Center in Albert and click on "Enroll" in the Academics section. If you use the shopping cart, here are some points to consider:
- You can put as many courses as you want into the shopping cart, but Albert will only put you in the maximum number of credits allowed by your school (18 credits for undergraduates).
- At your registration appointment time, you must return to Albert and complete the three enrollment steps to enroll in classes. Placing your classes in the shopping cart in advance does not enroll you in those classes.
- Any registration edits (course pre-requisites, class standing, etc.) will be checked when you complete all of the registration steps; they do not occur when you put the courses in the shopping cart.
A detailed explanation of how registration works as well as a video presentation can be found in the Student Training Guides. If you plan to put any of your courses on a wait-list, be sure to read the section in the "Albert Registration Help Guide" on swapping classes.
