As a dual degree student do I register at both schools each semester?


Dual degree students may only be registered at one school within NYU each semester. This is known as being “in residence” at a given school. While each dual degree program varies, in general you should be in residence in the school in which you are taking the majority of your credits this semester. Please review the Program Details for information on the recommended school of residence for each semester in your program.

You will register for your courses at the school of residency and pay tuition directly to that school.

In semesters in which you take courses at both NYU divisions, you may register for courses at Stern via AIS and also for courses at the other NYU division via Albert. In this case, once your final schedule is declared, administrators from both schools will work together to move all courses onto your record at the school of residency.

Why are courses falling under the “Courses Not Credited to MBA” section of My Program Progress page?

While in residence at Stern but also taking classes at another NYU division, all non-Stern courses you are enrolled in that semester will be reflected on your My Program Progress page. However, as those courses do not count toward your MBA degree, they will be listed under the “Courses Not Credited to MBA” section. These courses will not factor into your GPA or credits earned/remaining.  At the end of the semester these courses will be moved to your record at the other NYU division and will no longer be available via AIS.

As a dual degree student, how will I be billed each semester?

You are responsible for payment of full-time tuition and fees to the division at which you are in residence in a given semester.

However, if you register for courses at Stern via AIS and also for courses at the other NYU division via Albert, two tuition bills may automatically be generated. Once your final schedule is declared, administrators from both schools will work together to move all courses onto your record at the school of residency. Once this is complete, we will also ensure that the second tuition bill is removed from your record. You should always pay tuition only to the division at which you are in residence.

If you need to make last minute changes to your schedule, please be sure to notify both schools so that we can ensure any corresponding registration and billing adjustments are made.

Who should I contact regarding tuition payment? Is there a difference between the Stern Bursar and the NYU Bursar?
Tuition questions should be addressed to the Bursar associated with the school at which you are currently in residence. While in residence at Stern please contact the Stern Bursar (stbursar@stern.nyu.edu; 212.998.0630). While in residence at another NYU division please contact the NYU Bursar (212.998.2806).

Do I have access to both Stern's systems and NYU Central systems (for registration, payment, etc.)?

Once matriculated at Stern, dual degree students have unrestricted access to all Stern amenities and extracurricular activities. This includes 
AIS (including lottery), 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.

Similarly, once matriculated at another NYU division, you will have access to all of the amenities and systems of that division, including the Albert registration system.

How do I know how many credits I still need to complete in my program?

At Stern, you can log in to 
AIS and view your My Program Progress page to determine your remaining MBA 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) for credit 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?
Dual degree students are granted a credit deduction on the basis of the coursework they complete at another NYU division. 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.

Each program has different requirements and, therefore, different credit reductions. Below is a list of the credit reductions for each dual degree program:

 

JD/MBA

 9 credits

MA French Studies/MBA

 6 credits

MBA/MA Politics

 9 credits

MBA/MFA

 9 credits

MBA/MPA

 9 credits

MS Biology/MBA

 6 credits

MS Math for Finance/MBA

 6 credits

MD/MBA

 9 credits

 

Please note that at Stern the credit reduction is considered part of your Non-Stern coursework. All MBA students are permitted to take up to 15 credits outside of Stern (via International Programs or at another NYU division). Dual degree students will need to account for their credit reduction when determining how many non-Stern credits they may take.

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.

Do I have full access to all Stern services and activities as a dual degree student?

Once matriculated at Stern, dual degree students have unrestricted access to all Stern amenities and extracurricular 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.

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 appropriate.
