There are three Offerings within The Langone Program: Washington Square Weeknights; Washington Square Saturday; and Westchester.
Prior to first enrollment, students admitted to the Langone program who wish to change their Offering Status within The Langone Program must submit a written request to the Admission Committee Chairperson.
Students must remain in the Offering Status of admittance for the first two semesters of enrollment. After the first two semesters of enrollment, Langone students interested in officially changing their Offering Status must petition the MBA Academic Policy Board explaining their reasons for requesting a change in offering status. Such requests will be considered and accommodated on a space available basis in the requested offering and are not guaranteed. Typically, students are only permitted to change their Offering Status once. Students interested in switching their Offering Status more than once must submit an additional petition to the MBA Academic Policy Board explaining why an another switch is necessary. The reasons for switching more than once must be compelling. Subsequent requests will be considered and accommodated on a space available basis and are not guaranteed.
Langone Students have registration priority for courses within their Offering Status: Washington Square Weeknight; Washington Square Saturday; Westchester.
Courses in the first two semesters of enrollment are reserved for the Core Group sections for each Offering Status. Students must take the Core Group sections that correspond with their offering status of admittance. During the first two semesters of enrollment, Langone Program students may contact Academic Affairs and Advising office to take a third course in another offering. Accommodation will be made on a space available basis and is not guaranteed.
During the lottery, Langone students will see and lottery for only those courses within their Offering Status. During the drop/add period, all courses become available in each offering status and all Langone students may register for courses on a space available basis in other offerings from their own.
Beginning in their fifth semester (elective phase), Westchester Offering students can lottery or register for all Washington Square weeknight electives without the need to formally change their program offering status. By default, students will have the same priority as Washington Square weeknight students, based on their expected graduation date. Students may opt for a Washington Square Saturday status if they prefer to have priority for Saturday courses.
Prior to first enrollment, students admitted to the Full-Time program who wish to change their status to Langone Program must submit a written request to the Admission Committee Chairperson. The Admissions Committee will consider the request on a space-available basis. Full-time students who request a change in status relinquish all consideration under their original status.
After first enrollment, students in the Full-Time program may petition the MBA Academic Policy Board to transfer into The Langone Program for any semester after their first in the MBA program. The petition must include the following information:
If approved, the student must meet with an advisor in the Academic Affairs and Advising office at which time the student will sign a contract outlining the student's understanding of the conditions of acceptance into the Langone Program.
The contract indicates that the student becomes a Langone Program student with all attendant privileges, responsibilities and restrictions of the Langone program (i.e., credit loads, career services, tuition rates*.) Students may not revert to the full-time program after switching programs.
*Change of status may result in additional pro-rated tuition charges.
Students may not transfer from The Langone Program to the Full-Time program once they enroll. In exceptional cases, students who formally apply to accelerate their programs may be permitted to take more than the allowed maximum number of credits in a given semester.
Langone students may not register for Full-Time Core courses (day). However, day electives are open to Langone students on a space-available basis. Generally, within their graduation cohort, Full-Time students have priority for day electives and Langone students have priority for evening and Saturday electives. Only Langone students may take courses within the intensive modules.
