Important Intensive Session Policies:

Concurrent Courses Not Permitted

  • Students may not register for two Intensive courses concurrently.
  • Course dates may not overlap between courses.

Intensive Session Courses were created to enable Langone Part-time MBA students to complete their program at an accelerated pace. The intensive sessions schedule and its associated workload are challenging and rigorous for students and instructors alike. In order to provide for the academic integrity of the learning in intensive courses and to safeguard against student failure in the classroom, the Stern faculty has mandated that only one course be taken at a time and course schedules may not overlap.

100% Attendance Required

  • Students are required to attend every class session in its entirety. 
    • If you know you will not be able to attend any course session, do not register for the course.
    • If you miss the first course session, the professor has the authority to instruct you to drop the course.
    • If you miss a course for any reason, it may negatively impact your grade. 

Course Workload

  • Please consider carefully your available time, the course workload, and the course difficulty before registering for an Intensive Session Course.
  • The school strongly recommends a buffer period of at least 36 hours between Intensive Session Courses due to the extensive pre-work and/or post-work required with each course. We urge you to consider the workload implications before you choose to take back to back courses. 

Credit Load

  • Students typically register for 1.5 - 3.0 credits during the Intensive session.
  • Credits earned during the Intensive Sessions do not count toward the overall credit maximums for the Spring semester. Please refer to the Session Calendar for more information.

Course Schedules

  • Pay careful attention to the Intensive Session Course Schedule, as course schedules vary.
  • Course durations range from three days to three weeks.

Registration Schedule

  • The last date to add an Intensive Session Course is 3 days prior to the first meeting of the course.
  • Please pay attention to the Office of Records and Registration's add and drop schedule when adding and dropping Intensive Session courses.

Refund Schedule

  • The Bursar's refund schedule varies for Intensive Courses.
  • Please review the Bursar's refund schedule and policy for Intensive courses when adding and dropping. 

Langone Part-time MBA Students only

  • Only students registered in the Langone Part-time MBA program are permitted to register for Intensive Session Courses.
  • Full-time students may not register for Intensive Session Courses.
