The Langone Program - Offering Status

There are three Offerings within The Langone Program: Washington Square Evenings; Washington Square Weekend; and Westchester.

Switching Langone Program Offering Status

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.

Registration Priority by Offering Status within The Langone Program

Langone Students have registration priority for courses within their Offering Status: Washington Square Weeknight; Washington Square Weekend; 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.

Westchester Offering - Program Completion

Beginning in their fifth semester (elective phase), Westchester Offering students can lottery or register for all Washington Square electives without the need to formally change program offering status.  By default, students will have the same priority for Washington Square courses as the Washington Square Weeknight students, based on their expected date of graduation.  Students may opt for a Washington Square Weekend Offering status if they prefer to have priority for weekend courses.

 

Program Status Change - Full-Time/Langone

Switching from Full-Time to the Langone Program

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:

  1. Student's name.
  2. Student's N number and Net ID.
  3. The semester the student would like to transfer to the Langone Program.
  4. The number of credits the student has completed.
  5. A statement of the circumstances prompting this request (i.e., full-time job offer).
  6. A Proposed plan of study for the remainder of the program.
  7. A detailed career management plan.
  8. For international students: confirmation of either an "H-1" or other applicable visa to replace the F-1 visa status
  9. Approval by the Bursar.

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.

 

Switching from the Langone to the Full-Time Program

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 weekend electives. Only Langone students may take courses within the intensive modules.
