Fall Class Registration

Get Ready for Registration! It begins the week of May 24th. 

Before registration becomes available for the fall and spring semesters, the Office of the Registrar sets an enrollment appointment time for all undergraduate students. Your specific registration time is available to view under the "Enrollment Dates" box on the right side of your Student Center on Albert. (Summer and January term do not require registration appointments; you can register as soon as registration becomes available for those semesters). Make sure to check for any registration holds on the Albert home page. Some holds may prevent you from registering. Take care of them prior to your registration time. Also, make sure to read through course notes carefully before enrolling in a class to make sure you meet the prerequisites!

Check out these helpful registration links (can also be found on your Academics tab in Stern Life):

Please be advised that class days/times are subject to change.  Be sure to review Albert before finalizing your schedule and before the first day of classes!

Helpful Registration Tips

Take advantage of the following tools and resources when planning your fall schedule.

Meet With Your Adviser

You are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment to discuss your proposed plan of study in advance of your registration appointment time. As we are currently remote, you can schedule a phone or Zoom appointment via NYU Connect. Please don't forget that all appointments are held in ET/NYC time, so please account for the time difference. Advisers are also offering a limited number of non-traditional appointment hours to accommodate students who may be in other time zones. 
  • Advisers will be available for 30-minute Zoom or phone appointments on NYU Connect through May 18th. 15-minute appointments will begin the week of May 19th and run through the morning of May 28th.
  • Advisers are also available during daily virtual Quick Visit drop-ins throughout the week. Zoom-in during the listed time-frames to ask quick questions one-on-one to members of our advising team. See scheduling and Zoom Info on Stern Life.

Search for Classes and Course Evaluations

Use the course search on Albert to find classes. When viewing the search results, be sure to:
  • Write down the class number of each proposed course, as you will need it to register. If you are using the course search after having signed into Albert, you should see an option to "select class" when browsing through course options. This will automatically add the course to your shopping cart. 
  • Make a note of courses that also require a permission number to register (see step 6 for more on permission numbers.)
  • Read the departmental notes to determine if there are any course prerequisites or registration restrictions.
  • Be sure to read important pre-registration e-mails from the Advising office specifying specific courses that you should take based on your class year and/or major or concentration.
  • Course evaluations are a great planning tool for registration that allows you to see course feedback from students who have taken the class previously. Results from the Albert Course Evaluation tool are available to students via their Albert Student Center. After logging in, click the "Evaluation Published Results" link on the home page. It's important that you remember to fill out your evaluations at the end of each semester to help your fellow students better navigate their course selection process in the future.

Waitlisting and the Edit Swap Tool

Adding your name to a course waitlist does not guarantee enrollment. After a certain period (see NYU Academic Calendar), course waitlists are deactivated for the term. If you have not been able to enroll in the waitlisted course by this time, it is no longer an option for your schedule. If you plan to add your name to a waitlist, please be aware:
  • Not all courses have a waitlist option
  • Waitlists can become full and the course will show as closed
  • You can add yourself to a waitlist and set up an "EDIT SWAP" which will allow Albert to automatically drop you from a course on your schedule if you get off the waitlist.
  • You will not be able to waitlist for a course for which you don't meet the prerequisites.
  • You will not be able to get off a waitlist if there is a time conflict with another enrolled class or if the addition of that course would exceed the 18-unit semester limit.
  • Monitor your waitlist position and your class schedule as it may change; if you have set up the edit swap properly, you will be automatically enrolled in the course if you move up to the first position and space becomes available. 
  • To remove an edit swap, you need to go back to the edit swap menu, select the blank space at the top of the drop-down menu, and click "submit." Check your schedule; this should have removed the edit swap.

The Edit Swap Tool
If you plan to add yourself to a course waitlist but your schedule is already full, you may need to use the edit swap function.

To "Edit Swap," you must:
  • Register for an open back-up course to ensure a schedule of 16-18 credits
  • Waitlist yourself for the class you would prefer. Then set up an edit swap by following the steps below:
    1. Log on to your Student Center on Albert
    2. Scroll down to your schedule
    3. Select the "Edit Swap" button
    4. Select the course from your schedule that can be dropped (the “back-up course”) if you get off the waitlist
    5. Select "submit". You should see your waitlist position and the class number of the class you have the edit swap set up with on your schedule
    6. Albert will only drop you from your back-up if it is able to enroll you from the waitlist into your preferred course.
If you are already on a waitlist for a class and then enroll yourself into an open section of the same course, Albert will drop you from the waitlisted section because it will assume you got the course you needed. To avoid being dropped from a waitlist, first, enroll in an open section of that course and then waitlist yourself for the section you prefer. Finally, set up the "edit swap."

Enrolling in Non-Stern Elective Courses

If you are approved to take a course that requires a permission number or special authorization to register, you should contact the department offering the course to determine if you are eligible to enroll and to inquire about the necessary steps to obtain a permission number, and/or other special registration authorization.

Check out these classes across NYU to find an interesting elective to take!

Verify Your Schedule

You should always verify your registration on Albert by reviewing your final schedule. Be sure to correct all registration mistakes before the first day of classes to avoid financial penalties. Pay special attention to the start dates of all of your classes as some schools of the University offer courses in special sessions. Please also make sure that you are enrolled in at least 12 credits (full-time) unless you are in the second semester of your senior year and you can be part-time (enrolled in less than 12 credits) and still be on track to successfully complete your degree requirements.
