Checks and Balances

Now that you’ve hopefully registered for your Spring in NY classes, it’s a good idea to check your class schedule and account balance. You can do both of these in Albert via NYUHome.

To check your account balance, click on the “Academics” tab in NYUHome. Then click on the bright pink “Student Center” link. Once you’re in your Student Center, locate the “Finances” tab, under which you can find “View Bursar Account.” This will bring you to your eSuite, where you can review or pay your account balance. More detailed instructions can be found on theBursar’s website. Students applying for a consortium agreement between NYU and their home institution should submit this to NYU by December 15.  All students may contact the Bursar’s Office directly with further inquiries about their account.

To check your class schedule, follow the above instructions to access your Student Center. Your courses should automatically populate and look something like this:

If your courses do not automatically appear, click on the “My Class Schedule” link under “Academics,” select “Spring 2016” and review your schedule! Use the interactive Campus Map to plot the locations of your courses. As always, if you have any questions about Spring in NY do not hesitate to contact the University Programs Team.

How to Register for Class

Don’t forget, today is the first day of registration! Registering for classes can be a daunting task. But have no fear, we’re here to help! Online registration via Albert begins today, November 30, and will be available through February 8, after which date you must meet with your Academic Advisor (us) or visit the Student Services Center at 25 W. 4th Street. To register yourself, it’s important that you first complete all items on our initial “to-do” list (see previous post). Once you have thoroughly explored the course search, and have written down the five-digit class number of the class(es) you wish to take this spring, you are ready to self-enroll!

To enroll in courses, first sign in to NYUHome. Once logged in, click on the “Academics” tab. From there, continue to your Student Center. In the top left hand corner, click on “Enrollment.” Select the Spring 2015 term and click continue. Then, enter the five-digit class number you wish to take. Click next and it should be entered into your shopping cart. Thumbs up if you receive a green check mark!

The course likely has pre-requisites which require approval. Or, if there is a separate issue, the University Programs team will be able to troubleshoot it once we receive your request. Enrollment request forms may take up to 7 business days to process. Please note: You must be logged in to your NYUHome account to be able to access the enrollment request form.

After following these steps, it’s a good idea to return to your Student Center and review your class schedule.
