Gallatin School of Individualized Study

Leonard N. Stern School of Business

No more than 31 credits in business courses can count towards the Gallatin B.A. degree. This includes courses in the Stern School, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, and those transferred from other colleges and universities.

In the fall and spring semesters, Stern opens registration to non-Stern students when registration-by-appointment ends. Please be aware that Stern does not permit students with less than 32 earned units to register for Stern courses.

Keeping this rule in mind, students from other divisions of NYU are welcome to pursue coursework at the Stern Undergraduate College, assuming they have completed all of the required prerequisites. Non-Major sections for Stern's business core coursework are available to students from other divisions. If a non-major section is unavailable, students from other divisions of NYU are not permitted to enroll in a Stern section. The majority of Stern's elective course offerings, however, are open to all NYU students. An updated open course access list can be found in advance of registration at the Stern Undergraduate College website for non-majors. For more information, contact Ally Kirkpatrick at Tisch Hall, 40 West 4th Street, Suite 616. When e-mailing Ally, please provide your name, University ID number, the course name, the course number and the course's five digit call number.
