Consult the curriculum guide [PDF] to find out which courses to take. After you review the webpage, please consult with your academic advisor if you have questions about the following issues:

  • For full-time students: how to maintain your full-time status in fall/ spring semesters
  • For all students: how to meet prerequisites, sequence your courses appropriately, and plan your schedule to ensure you meet all graduation requirements.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  6. Financial Aid: Please note that any courses taken over the summer could affect your financial aid for your second year.

Through immersion in local cultures and societies, students are able to experience social work as a global profession.
