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 (spring and fall only) by signing into your Student Center and clicking on "details" in the "Enrollment Dates" section. 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 in the “Personal Information” section of your Albert Student Center. Students are required to have a “NYU Emergency Alert” cell phone number and emergency contact to register; update or enter this information as well.
  3. Check for registration holds in your Albert Student Center. Some holds may block you from registration; if you have one, click “Details” in the “Holds” section to find out who you should contact to resolve it.
  4. Review your Degree Progress report in Albert 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 Liberal Arts and Historical & Cultural Courses Offered at Other NYU Schools pages to find classes that will fulfill your liberal arts requirement and historical and cultural requirement. Then use the NYU course search to get registration information on the classes you plan to take.
  6. Meet with your academic adviser to complete and submit the Plan of Study form. 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 your registration appointment day and time to avoid delays with receiving registration clearance.
  7. Add courses to your "Shopping Cart” and use the “Validation” tool to identify potential enrollment issues such as time conflicts, the need for department consent or an unmet requisite.
  8. Obtain permission numbers and/or departmental consent to register for courses with restrictions. Check Gallatin’s Cross School Study Guide 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.
