3. I am a 16 Month Program student. How do I know when to take classes if I don't have my placement yet?  

You should enroll in courses 2 days a week, saving 3 full business days for Field. You can talk to your agency once you are placed to confirm a schedule based on their needs and your availability. If you need to change your schedule to accommodate your Field placement, your academic advisor can assist you.

4. I cannot navigate Albert. Can someone register for classes on my behalf?

It is the student's responsibility to select and enroll in courses according to the appropriate curriculum guide. Please review the ALBERT tutorial for a step-by-step overview of the registration process and functions. After you review the tutorial, if you need further assistance, please contact Enrollment Services at 212 998 5910

5. I didn't submit my final undergraduate transcript because I'm still in my Bachelor's program. Will I have a hold that prevents registration if this is my first time enrolling?

No, you will not have a transcript block if this is your first time enrolling. However, you must submit your transcript as soon as possible once your degree is conferred. You will not be able to register during future enrollment cycles without submitting your final transcript that shows your degree conferral.

6. My preferred section of a course is full or waitlisted -- what should I do?

Use the SWAP function on Albert to waitlist yourself for your preferred section. PLEASE NOTE: If you are closed out of your first-choice section of a course, the most important thing to do is to sign up for an open section immediately, and then add yourself to the waitlist for your first-choice section using the SWAP function in Albert. Note that students are responsible for using the SWAP function correctly.

Faculty, advisors, and administrators cannot override waitlists to enroll students into their preferred sections. Students may only attend classes in which they are successfully enrolled on Albert.  

7. I'm being asked for a permission code to register -- how do I enroll?

Please email silver.registration@nyu.edu with your name, UID (N#) as well as the course name, number, and section for which you wish to enroll.

8. Why can't I add all the courses I want?

Students can take a maximum of 18 credits. No first year student should be taking more than 17 credits. Please be sure to follow the curriculum guide.

9. What does "ASOS ONLY" mean?

For Social Work Practice III and IV, sections 001, 010, and 020 are reserved for Advanced Standing students (ASOS). Unless you are an Advanced Standing student, do not enroll in these sections. If you are an Advanced Standing student, then choose one of these three sections.

10. How do I know when a course is offered at the Westchester or Rockland campus?

Courses offered at the Westchester campus are designated with a "060" level section number. For example, MSWPF-GS.2001.060 or MSWPF-GS.2001.061.

Courses offered at the Rockland campus are designated with a "050" level section number. For example, MSWPF-GS.2001.050 or MSWPF-GS.2001.051.
