Do I have access to both Stern's systems and NYU Central systems (for registration, payment, etc.)?
Once you are a matriculated student at Stern, you have access to all Stern facilities, systems, and services for the remainder of your program (even if you are officially registered at another NYU division). This includes AIS and Albert. Students do not have access to Stern's systems and services before matriculation.
If I am a dual degree student, does that mean I'm registered at both schools all the time?
You may only be registered (matriculated) at one school within NYU each semester. Each dual degree program varies, the guideline is that students should be registered in the school in which they have the majority of their credits. Please review the Program Overviews and Sample Schedules to get an idea of when you will be registered at either school in your program.
Why are there courses falling under the “Courses Not Credited to MBA” section of my My Program Progress page?
When dual degree students are taking classes at two divisions of NYU, they may only be officially registered at one of those divisions. While registered at Stern but taking classes at another NYU division, all non-Stern courses will be reflected on your My Program Progress page. However, as those courses are not counting toward your MBA degree, we want to make sure they don't factor into your GPA or credits earned/remaining. At the end of the semester those classes will move to your record at the other NYU division and will no longer be available via AIS. The same, but in reverse, holds true when registered at another NYU division but taking Stern courses.
Why am I being double billed?
As a full-time student, you are billed full-time tuition. Therefore, if you register for classes at Stern via AIS a tuition bill is generated. If you also register for classes via Albert you trigger a tuition bill as well. This means that in the semesters when you are registering at both schools, you will be automatically double billed as soon as you use both online registration systems (either in the lottery or during the add/drop period). The administrators at both schools work with dual degree students to remove the extra bill from the student's record. However, please note that this may affect your student loans where applicable.
Tuition bills from both schools will remain on your bursar's record until you declare your final schedule and we can move all courses to your record at the school of residency. If you make online changes after this point another bill will be generated.
Who should I contact regarding tuition payment? Is there a difference between the Stern Bursar & Registrar and the NYU Bursar & Registrar?
Tuition questions should be addressed to the Bursar associated with the school in which you are registered that semester. While registered at Stern please contact the Stern Bursar (firstname.lastname@example.org; 212.998.0630). While registered at another NYU division please contact the NYU Bursar (212.998.2806).
How do I know how many more credits I need in each program?
At Stern, you can log in to AIS and view your My Program Progress page to determine remaining degree credits. At other NYU divisions you can log in to Albert and review your status and/or unofficial transcript.
As a dual degree student, am I eligible to take courses outside of Stern?
All MBA students are permitted to take courses outside of Stern (either at other NYU divisions or by participating in international experiences) and count them toward their MBA degree. As a dual degree student the number of credits you may take depends upon the credit reduction associated with your program. Please review the policy regarding courses at other NYU divisions.
How does the credit reduction work at Stern?
Each program has different requirements and, therefore, different credit reductions. The credit reduction reduces the amount of credits each student must take at Stern in order to make it possible to complete both graduate degrees in a condensed time period. Below is a list containing the credit reductions for each dual degree program:
MA French Studies
MS Math for Finance
Will I get credit for classes taken at Stern before I begin as a Stern student?
The current official Stern policy states that Stern does not accept any credits taken before matriculation into the MBA program. If you feel that your case represents extenuating circumstances and you feel an exception is warranted, please petition the Stern MBA Academic Policy Board.
Can I change the timing of my participation in the Office of Career Development's Ignite program?
Students should contact the Office of Career Development (OCD) for details. All MBA students may participate in the Ignite program one time during their MBA program. Most full-time students participate in their first year in the program, however dual degree students may delay and participate in their second year, if desired.
What happens when I am not registered at Stern (i.e. lockers, clubs, etc.)?
Once matriculated at Stern, dual degree students have unrestricted access to all Stern amenities and extra curricular activities. This includes AIS, the Office of Career Development, study rooms, email, lockers, clubs and leadership positions, etc. Students who have not yet matriculated at Stern will have access once they begin the MBA portion of their program.
