Note: This information applies to NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, KAIST students considering a semester in New York. Students from other colleges and universities who are interested in enrolling as a visiting student at NYU's campus in New York should consider programs hosted by NYU's Office of University Programs.

Course Registration

Students should meet with their academic mentor/advisor to determine their course choices for study away in New York. You are expected to take a full course-load (4 courses or 16-18 credits). In order to register, you will be assigned a registration time to select your courses through NYU Albert. As NYU students register in order of seniority, your first choice of courses may already be filled by the time your registration window opens. To be prepared, select three back-up course choices in case you are unable to register for your most desired courses. Students who would like to take courses in restricted programs at Tisch, Steinhardt, and Stern should work with their mentors/advisors well in advance of registration.

All students have access to courses that are part of NYU's Cross-School Minors.

All students who study away are expected to complete a Course Intent Form in advance of registration. Additional information about course registration will be available through the Enrollment Portal.

Not all New York courses are open to study away students and students should discuss with their advisor for alternative course options.
