Choosing Your Classes


As a Summer in NYC student, you have the opportunity to take almost any course available on the course search! However there are some important things to note and consider when planning your summer schedule.

First, please note that visiting students are typically only permitted to enroll in Undergraduate-level courses. Undergraduate courses are indicated by a “U” in the course abbreviation suffix (ex: PSYCH-UA), while graduate courses are marked by a “G” (ex: PSYCH-GA).

Second, you should always “Click here to learn more” when reading a course description. This section will provide you with information about the course meeting time, when during the summer it takes place, and who will be teaching it. Any pre-requisites or restrictions will be listed under the “Notes:” section. In the example below, note that this four-credit class will take place during the first half of the summer from 5/23-7/03. It will meet three days a week, and the required pre-requisite is PSYCH-UA 1, Introduction to Psychology. If you wish to register for a course that has a pre-requisite requirement, be sure to submit an enrollment request form.


Finally, if you are taking a course as an elective or just for fun, be sure to consider the many unique offerings of NYU. The Open Arts Curriculum courses at Tisch (OART-UT), Interdisciplinary Seminars at Gallatin (IDSEM-UG), and Media, Culture and Communication courses at Steinhardt (MCC-UE) are just a few of the popular departments we have!
