Enroll into or drop/withdraw from a School of Engineering course when you cannot do so online for special circumstances. This form may be used for audit requests (graduate students) and variable credit course permission (undergraduate and graduate students). Note, however, that most enrollments should be processed via NYU Albert Student Center. Exceptions such as enrollment into closed classes or the waiving of course pre- or co-requisites can be processed by registering in Albert Student Center with a permission number obtained from the pertinent department. Advisor signature is required when submitting this form, which can be handed in to the School of Engineering One-Stop Service window in Dibner 201 or at 25 West 4th Street.
Full-time undergraduate students may register for 12-21 credits (all credits in excess of 20 are charged at the per credit rate). Graduate students may register for a maximum of 12 credits.
Credit ‘overloads’ are approved on a case-by-case basis and dependent upon a student’s academic performance. Students who wish to appeal for overload must submit a Credit Limit Overload Form to the Office of Undergraduate/Graduate Academics. The form must be signed first by the department adviser. If ‘overload’ permission is granted, the completed form must be submitted to the School of Engineering Office of Records and Registration in Jacobs Building Room 158 for processing. The Office of Records and Registration will adjust the student’s maximum credit load, allowing the student to enroll for the approved credit amount online via NYU Albert Student Center.
Appeal your academic disqualification from the School of Engineering. Your appeal must include an essay explaining the reason(s) for the appeal and must be approved by your academic adviser and the Director of Academic Affairs.
Students who cannot enroll for a semester due serious illness, national service, or compelling personal reasons may request a Leave of Absence. Students must submit a request for Leave of Absence via NYU Albert Student Center. Undergraduates must obtain permission from the Academic Advisement Center (first year students) or the Office of Academic Affairs (sophomore – senior students). Graduate students must obtain permission from the Associate Dean of Graduate Academics. If a request is approved by all required signatories, the University Registrar will record a leave of absence on the student’s transcript.
Leaves of absence, if approved, are granted for a maximum of one year except in extreme cases, such as compulsory national service (if such service is for more than one year). Foreign students must also contact OGS. An approved leave of absence is an academic decision; it does not override OGS concerns. The leave of absence counts towards the time limits for earning a degree. The approval of a leave of absence does not preclude subsequent academic disqualification.
Get permission to study abroad at a Global E3 institution or a School of Engineering Exchange site. You must receive permission from your advisor and obtain equivalent course information from the corresponding the School of Engineering Department(s).
Maintain documentation of the equivalencies of any courses taken abroad at an NYU Study Away site. This form will indicate what the courses taken abroad will count as in terms of your degree plan. For example, a free elective, a Level 2 CAM course, or Physics II.
NYU Course Equivalency Form (Undergraduate)
Maintain documentation of the equivalencies of any courses taken at another school of New York University including the College of Arts & Sciences, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development, Stern School of Business, etc. This form will indicate what the course completed at another school will count as for the completion of your degree.
Note: students are allowed to transfer a maximum of 4 courses completed outside of the School of Engineering towards their degree requirements.
Get permission to take a class at another college or university for transfer credit. You must complete this form before you begin the course by receiving permission from your adviser and obtaining equivalent course information from the corresponding the School of Engineering Department.
Request a particular course of action to complete a stated degree requirement, for example by replacing one required course with another similar course. In consultation with your academic adviser, you will complete the form which will then need to be approved by the Dean of Undergraduate Academics.
Request full-time status while you are taking a part-time course load. This request should only be made by international students seeking full-time equivalency for visa purposes. Please contact the Brooklyn location of the NYU Office of Global Services to obtain a full-time equivalency form.
Enroll in MAINT-UY 4747 – Maintenance of Matriculation. If you have finished your courses, but still need time to complete other academic requirements, e.g., theses, projects, or incomplete grades, you may want to enroll in MAINT-UY 4747 – Maintenance of Matriculation in order to maintain your status as a matriculated student at the School of Engineering, which is required to graduate from the university. To enroll, you will write an essay explaining why you were unable to complete your work in the time allotted. Your request must be approved by your academic adviser and the Dean of Undergraduate Academics.
Declare or change a major to your degree program. Students will complete the minor application form on Albert Student center, following these instructions.
Reserve a room for a special event. This form should NOT be used final exams or semester-long events.
As per the School of Engineering policy, enrolling for two courses with overlapping meeting times is prohibited. Leaving a class early or arriving late is disruptive to the instructor and other students in the class. Such time conflicts also jeopardize a student’s academic success in a class. This form is only to be used if a student, with the agreement of their adviser and course instructors, believes that extenuating circumstances warrant an exception to this rule. Please attach a signed Drop/Add form with the signed Time Conflict Approval form and submit BOTH forms to the School of Engineering Office of Records and Registration in Jacobs Building 158 for consideration.
Get an extension to complete your degree beyond the 8-year time limit. If you do not complete your degree requirements within the 8-year time limit, you must complete this form in order to be allowed to finish your degree at the School of Engineering. You must write an essay explaining why you were not able to finish your degree within the allotted time. Your academic adviser will review the form and fill out the course(s) that you must complete in order to graduate. The Dean of Undergraduate Academics will make the final approval.
Students who intend to withdraw from their program at the School of Engineering must submit a Total Withdrawal request via NYU Albert Student Center. Requests must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs (undergraduate) or the Office of Graduate Academics (graduate). If an enrolled student totally withdraws from the School of Engineering prior to the Withdrawal Deadline, s/he will receive W grades. Mere absence from courses does not constitute official withdrawal, and failure to submit the appropriate forms by the published deadline will result in F grades for courses not completed.
Students who are withdrawing from a course (dropping a course after the add/drop deadline) that requires a co-requisite should complete this form if they are dropping only one course in a co-requisite group. This form should accompany the Drop/Add Form, and must be submitted to the School of Engineering Office of Records and Registration in JB158 for processing.
