Academics

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.


Class Locations and Size

Your classes may be spread across NYU’s Greenwich Village campus. Keep in mind you may need over 15 minutes to reach a class housed in a different building. Your class schedule will contain building codes for the locations of your class. Please reference the registrar’s website for the building code key to determine where your classes will take place.

The Moses Center for Students with Disabilities

NYU encourages students to participate fully in all aspects of campus life. In support of this goal, the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Students qualify as persons with disabilities if their diagnosed physical, learning, or psychological impairments limit them in one or more life activities. Reasonable accommodations are adjustments to policies, practices, or procedures that facilitate equal access for students with disabilities to NYU’s programs, activities, and services.

Printing

Students must pay to print at NYU New York. To help offset the cost of printing, each student receives an ITS Print Grant worth $50. When you swipe your NYUCard at an ITS Print Station, 10 cents is deducted from your print grant (75 cents for color) for every sheet (two sides of a page) that you print. Should you use up your grant before the semester ends, you may choose to have additional printing charges deducted from your NYU Campus Cash account balance.

If and when your Print Grant is depleted, you must add Campus Cash to your NYU ID card in order to continue to print. You can deposit funds in your NYUCard Campus Cash account at any of the Value Transfer Stations on campus or by accessing Campus Cash On-line through the NYU Life channel of NYUHome.

Printers can be found at various locations across NYU’s campus.

Wasserman Center for Career Development

Students interested in polishing their C.V., attending career fairs, or continuing the work begun with your home campus's Career Development Center should visit the Wasserman Center.  Counselors are available through virtual chat, walk-in hours, or appointment.  If you hope to work on campus, CareerNet is a good place to start to explore possible openings.
