- Students will receive an email from the Doctoral Office once approval has been granted. After this, students may proceed to register for their courses via NYU Albert. Please note some non-Stern courses may require a "permission code" from the school hosting the course in order to register on NYU Albert. If you receive a message on Albert indicating a permission code is needed, please see the section below, "Contacts for Permission Codes for Courses at Other NYU Schools," for the name and email address of who to contact.

Courses at NYU GSAS Economics Department
If you are interested in taking a course in the Economics Department at the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, please keep the following policies in mind:
- Stern Finance and Economics students can take the first-year and upper-level GSAS Economics PhD courses without any approval.
- Stern PhD students in other departments (e.g. Accounting, Marketing, Management, Operations Management, Information Sciences, and Statistics) must file a formal application to take any GSAS PhD-level Economics course. That application consists of a letter from a Stern faculty member to the Economics Department's Director of Graduate Studies (DGS). That letter should explain both the student's qualifications for the course as well as why the student wants to take the course. If the DGS, in consultation with the course instructor(s), finds that letter acceptable, he or she can either confer permission to the student immediately or meet with the student to make a further evaluation. The final decision as to whether the student will be allowed to take the course is up to the GSAS Economics department.

Students interested in taking a course at Columbia's Graduate School of Business should fill out the consortium registration form. Students should first visit the Stern Doctoral Office for a signature on this form. They should then take this form to the Columbia GSB Doctoral Office for a signature. They should also obtain the signature of the course instructor. Once signed by all parties, completed copies of the form should be returned to both the Stern Doctoral Office and Columbia GSB Doctoral Office.
Students must simultaneously register at Stern for "PHDC-GB.3301 - PhD Consortium/Columbia" during the semester in which they are taking the Columbia course.
Students should request a copy of their transcript from the Columbia GSB Registrar once all Columbia coursework has been completed and a grade has been issued. The transcript should be given to the Stern Doctoral Office so grade(s) may be transferred.
Maintaining matriculation establishes student status and enables students to use the Student Health Center, library, and gym.
Students who are maintaining matriculation and who are taking less than 9 credits will be automatically coded for full-time equivalency at the start of the semester. Students who expect to drop below the 9 credit requirement by dropping one or more courses during the semester should notify the Doctoral Office immediately.
The Doctoral Office expects to grant full-time equivalency for up to six semesters, to enable students to:
- Write the dissertation proposal after passing the comprehensive examination; and
- Write the dissertation after receiving approval for the dissertation proposal.
