  1. Consult the curriculum guide [PDF] to find out which courses to take. Please contact your academic advisor if you wish to take a course out of sequence.
  2. Once you know which courses to take, arrange a schedule by looking up the times and days they are offered on ALBERT, which is accessible through NYUHome.
  3. Use the CLASS NUMBER listed on the COURSE STATUS page to register on the Register screen. Familiarize yourself with Albert with this helpful video, Albert "How-to" Video.
    • You should have several alternative options prepared in case you are unable to enroll in your first-choice course(s). 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.
  4. If you will complete a social work internship this semester, please find registration instructions below.
  5. Confirm your schedule using the STUDENT SCHEDULE option on ALBERT.
