Undergraduate Registration Instructions

To prepare for registration each semester (spring, January term, fall and summer) students should follow the below steps to facilitate the process.

  1. Check your registration appointment day and time under Enrollment Dates on your Student Center Home page. Appointment days and times (Eastern time zone) are based on your earned units, excluding the units from courses you are currently taking and haven’t received grades for.
  2. Update your contact information on the Personal Info page of your Albert Student Center. Students are required to have an “NYU Emergency Alert” cell phone number and emergency contact to register; update or enter this information as well.
  3. Check for registration holds under Holds on your Student Center Home page. Some holds may block you from registration; click on each hold listed to find out who you should contact to resolve it.
  4. Review your Degree Progress report under Planning Tools on your Student Center Academics page to determine your outstanding degree requirements. Be sure to look over the Gallatin Degree Requirements as well.
  5. Search for classes on the Gallatin Course and NYU Courses that Fulfill Gallatin Requirements pages to find classes that will fulfill your liberal arts requirementhistorical and cultural requirement, and critical race studies requirement. Then use the NYU course search to get registration information on the classes you plan to take.  Be sure to review the course notes to determine if there are any restrictions, special instructions, or important information.
  6. Meet with your academic adviser to complete and submit the Plan of Study form by the submission deadline. Before you can register on Albert, your academic adviser must approve the courses you list on your plan of study. Make an appointment with your adviser well in advance of the Plan of Study submission deadline to avoid delays with receiving registration clearance.
  7. Add classes to your Enrollment Shopping Cart and use the validate function to identify potential enrollment issues such as time conflicts, the need for department consent or an unmet requisite.  If there is an issue, review the course notes to learn of any restrictions, special instructions or important information. 
  8. Obtain permission numbers and/or departmental consent to register for courses with restrictions. Check Gallatin’s NYU Academic Departments and Programs resource page for additional instructions and information about registration restrictions on courses offered by other NYU schools.
  9. Register for classes when your appointment day and time arrive. 
  10. Verify your schedule; if necessary, use Edit Swap or Edit Enrollment to make adjustments to the classes you are enrolled in.
  11. Review your bill and pay your tuition. If you receive financial aid, confirm that your aid has been applied to your NYU e-Bill.
