Note: This information applies to NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai 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.
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.

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 by accessing Campus Cash On-line through the NYU Life channel of NYUHome.
Printers can be found at various locations across NYU’s campus.
