Students in good academic standing with no administrative holds and who have obtained advisor approval are eligible to register for courses during registration periods assigned by the University Registrar. Registration is done through the Albert Student Center, which can be accessed through NYU Home.

Registration Appointments

Each semester around midterm, the University Registrar sets a registration appointment for each student. The appointment will appear on the Albert Student Center. Appointments are established according to the number of credits a student has earned. The appointment date is the earliest time that a student can register for classes. 

*All students are required to obtain advisor approval in order to register. 

Student Registration Holds

When logging into the Albert Student Center, students should verify that there are no HOLDS on their record. Any holds, such as the library, prior term balance, and health vaccination holds, will prevent students from registering. Please contact the appropriate office to clear any holds before registering. To determine if a student has any holds, please view the Holds section on the Albert Student Center.
Please follow the procedure below for registration each term:

  1. Make an advising appointment with your academic advisor to be cleared for registration.
  2. Bring one copy of your unofficial transcript from Albert and two copies of your proposed schedule.
  3. Students register through their Albert Student Center accounts.  Please refer to the directions on the Registrar’s website for assistance with using the Albert system to register. 

*Students should continually check Albert Student Center up to the start of classes for the latest room assignments, as these can change several times before classes actually begin.

Course Registration for Nursing Sequence Students

The Office of Undergraduate Programs will randomly assign you to clinical sites and register you for all of your classes, both clinical and nonclinical, for the semester. You will receive a confirmation email when your schedule is complete and available in Albert.

The Office of Undergraduate Programs and Academic Clinical Affairs put a tremendous amount of effort into securing clinical sites and creating each student’s individual schedule. Our random process for clinical site selection results in a fair process for all students enrolled in our program. Due to the requirements, policies, and procedures established by our hospital/agency clinical partners, we are unable to make changes to student clinical  assignments once assigned, unless deemed necessary by program administration.

Registration of Designated Curriculum Progression

All Rory Meyers College of Nursing students should follow the appropriate nursing course progression outlined on their respective program curriculum sheets. After being cleared in NYU’s registration system, Albert, students are permitted to register for only the courses in which they were approved by their assigned academic advisor.

Students who register for any courses which were not approved by their advisor (e.g., a different undergraduate major, different graduate NP program, or courses outside of NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing and do not show proof of attempting to transfer to the different program) may be involuntarily withdrawn from the non-approved courses. When students register for courses outside of their approved curriculum course progression, the courses may not count towards their degree in the Rory Meyers College of Nursing.

NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing follows the university refund schedule for any dropped courses and the university registrar’s calendar for the “W” notation appearing on student transcripts for withdrawn courses.

Permitted Course Loads

The regular full-time undergraduate program is 12 to 18 credits per semester. Students enrolled in nursing sequence courses should register for 16 credits each term according to the curriculum progression sheet. Students may register for over 18 credits by advisement only and with approval from the Vice Dean, Administration, Planning and Inclusion. Students wishing to take more than 18 credits in a given semester should complete and submit the Credit Overload Permission Form Students who wish to enroll in over 18 credits should be advised of the tuition for the cost of additional credits.
