This page is for students who have been accepted to the Gallatin MA program. The outline below serves as a checklist of the steps you will need to take in sequence in order to start the program in the fall. We are so pleased that you are joining us this fall.
Once you have paid your deposit, you will receive a detailed welcome email from us.
All incoming students should take the Proseminar (CORE-GG 20** ) in the fall.
Students who are full-time in the program take 12 points for the first three semesters and then 4 points in the last semester.
The Gallatin MA Program defines full-time status as enrollment in a minimum of 12 units in one semester, and half-time status as enrollment in a minimum of 6 units in one semester (the two summer sessions combined are regarded as one semester). Students who have been awarded scholarships from Gallatin must be enrolled as full-time students (12 points per semester) in order to receive the full amount of the scholarship. If enrollment is not full-time, then the scholarship will be prorated.
For the purposes of immigration and federal aid eligibility (student loans), NYU considers full-time status as enrollment in a minimum of 9 units in one semester, and half-time status as enrollment in a minimum of 4.5 units in one semester (the two summer sessions combined are regarded as one semester).
Each semester, you will complete the Plan of Study for approval by your adviser before you register for classes.
Follow these important steps in order to register for classes.
Your primary adviser may be a full-time or part-time faculty member in any school, department, or program at NYU, who is an expert in your field or fields.
We will begin the matching process by consulting the list of faculty you included in your application to see if those faculty are available to work with you. We will update you on this process as it moves ahead.
Please also be aware that advising assignments are not effective until the fall term begins, so if there are academic issues that you would like to discuss with a faculty member, please reach out to us. The Faculty Co-Directors or the Administrative Director will be approving your plans of study for your first fall semester.
If you have questions about your NetID, N Number, Password, NYU Home, and Email, NYU Photo ID Card, or Transcript, please email email@example.com.
The MA Program Orientation for incoming students will take place during Welcome Week in person. When our plans are finalized, we will notify you via your NYU email address with the date and time of the orientation.
Convocation will take place during Welcome Week in person. Convocation is when we gather as a school to begin the new academic year. The event includes incoming undergraduate students, incoming Masters students, current students, faculty, administration, and staff. We will notify you via your NYU email address with the date and time of Convocation.
