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 212 988 5910

5. I didn't submit my final undergraduate transcript. What should I do?

You must submit your final official transcript as soon as possible. You will not be able to register without submitting your final transcript that shows your degree conferral.

Please email Enrollment Services silver.registration@nyu.edu if you have any questions.

6. I didn't get into my preferred section of a course -- 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. Students are responsible for using the SWAP function correctly.

Faculty, advisors, and administrators cannot override waitlists to enroll students into their preferred sections. Students should only attend classes in which they are officially registered.

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.
