Please refer to the Albert waitlist student guide for step-by-step instructions.
Waitlists are not evaluated on a first come, first served basis.
The waitlist takes many factors into consideration including, your program, expected date of graduation, lottery history (i.e., whether or not you requested the class in the lottery and how highly you ranked it), and any relevant special circumstances surrounding your request. Students are then ranked based on these criteria.
You will receive an email if a seat becomes available to you in a class for which you have waitlisted. Instructions on how to accept/decline the waitlist offer will be included. Note: students will NOT be notified if a seat does not open up in a waitlisted class.
A seat in a course opens when a registered student drops the course.
No, but we do our best to get as many waitlisted students as possible enrolled into a class.
Please e-mail the Office of Records & Registration at registrn@stern.nyu.edu and we will be more than glad to add your name back to the waitlist.
Professors are not allowed to approve or override students into closed courses that have a waitlist. The student must respect the waitlist process, once a seat becomes available, they will receive an offer.
Langone students in their first year of the program are not eligible to waitlist for electives. Core courses such as Stats and LIO are reserved for new students only; exceptions are made if approved by APB for continuing students but they should not be on waitlists.
