Program Status Change
Switching Langone Part-time MBA Program Offering StatusThere are three offering statuses within The Langone Part-time MBA Program:
- Washington Square Weeknight
- Washington Square Saturday
Students must remain in their program offering status of admittance for their first two semesters of enrollment. After the first two semesters of enrollment, Langone Part-time MBA students interested in officially changing their offering status must petition the Academic Policy Board explaining their reasons for requesting a change in offering status. Requests are considered and accommodated on a space available basis and are not guaranteed.
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 Academic Policy Board explaining why 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 Part-time MBA ProgramLangone Part-time MBA students have registration priority for courses within their program offering status (Washington Square Weeknight, Washington Square Saturday, or Westchester).
Courses in the first two semesters of enrollment are reserved for the Block sections for each program offering status. Students must take the Block sections that correspond with their offering status of admittance. During the first two semesters of enrollment, Langone Part-time MBA students may contact Academic Affairs and Advising 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 Part-time MBA students will see and lottery for only those courses within their program offering status. During the drop/add period, Langone Part-time MBA students may register for courses in other program offering statuses on a space available basis.
Westchester Offering - Program CompletionBeginning in their fifth semester (elective phase), Westchester students can lottery and 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 Saturday offering status if they prefer to have priority for weekend courses.
Switching from the Full-time to the Langone Part-time MBA Program
Prior to first enrollment, students admitted to the Full-time program who wish to change their status to Langone Part-time MBA 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 Academic Policy Board to transfer into the Langone Part-time MBA Program for any semester after their first in the MBA program. The petition must include the following information:
- Student's name.
- Student's N number and Net ID.
- The semester the student would like to transfer to the Langone Part-time MBA Program.
- The number of credits the student has completed.
- A statement of the circumstances prompting this request (i.e., full-time job offer).
- A proposed plan of study for the remainder of the program.
- A detailed career management plan.
- For international students: confirmation of either an "H-1" or other applicable visa to replace the F-1 visa status
- Approval by the Bursar.
If approved, the student must meet with an Academic Advisor in Academic Affairs and Advising to sign a contract outlining the student's understanding of the conditions of acceptance into the Langone Part-time MBA Program. The contract states that, upon transfer to the Langone Part-time MBA Program, the student will have all current student privileges, responsibilities and restrictions of the Langone Part-time MBA Program (i.e., credit loads, career services, tuition rates*.) Students may not revert to Full-time status after switching programs.
*Change of status may result in additional pro-rated tuition charges.
Switching from the Langone Part-time MBA to the Full-Time Program
Langone Part-time MBA students may not register for Full-time Core courses (day). However, day electives are open to Langone Part-time MBA students on a space-available basis. Generally, within their graduation cohort, Full-time students have priority for day electives and Langone Part-time MBA students have priority for evening and weekend electives. Only Langone Part-time MBA students may take courses within the intensive modules.
Switching from the Master of Science in Quantitative Management (MSQM) to the Langone Part-time MBA Program
The students must submit a request to the MBA Academic Policy Board no later than the MSQM Application for Degree Candidacy deadline, February 1.3
The request to transfer from the MSQM program must include the following information:
- When the student wishes to begin taking courses in the Langone Program, which can be as early as the following summer semester. A student who wishes to begin taking MBA courses later than the subsequent Fall must maintain matriculation by petitioning the Academic Policy Board for a Leave of Absence and pay the fee to maintain matriculation.
- The number of credits the student has completed and cumulative GPA at the time of the request.
- The semester in which the student expects to have completed 33 credits.
- For an international student, confirmation of an H-1B or other visa that permits part-time study in the U.S.
If the student remains in good academic standing and has a GPA of at least 3.0 at completion of 33 credits, Academic Affairs and Advising will initiate the transfer into the Langone Program.4 From that point forward, the Bursar will bill the student at the Langone Program rates and all Langone academic and program policies will apply.
1A student in good standing has a current bursar account, no Code of Conduct violations, and no incompletes.
2Once the MSQM degree has been conferred, we do not have the discretion to allow a student to transfer credits into the Langone Program. The student may apply to the Langone Program through the regular application process and, if admitted, will be required to complete 60 credits.
3If a student misses the deadline, the School may decide to make an exception and allow the transfer, as long as the MSQM degree has not been conferred.
4Academic Affairs & Advising will request that Records and Registration update the student’s program status.
