Registration Overview for New Spring into Tandon Students

Calendar with pen on it

Registering for classes is a multi-step process that takes many factors into consideration, and ultimately yields a combination of classes that reflect your intended major.

As a Spring into Tandon (SiT) student, you will work with the SiT advising team to be cleared for registration. Specific guidance on how to select and enroll in appropriate courses will be provided as you approach your start at the School of Engineering. Below is an overview of what you’ll need to complete in order to register.

Tuition Deposit and Assessments


Submit Your Tuition Deposit

This is the first step of the registration process, which not only signals your intent to pursue postsecondary education at the School of Engineering but also allows us to officially matriculate you into your academic program. 


Take the English-language Writing Placement Survey

If you are required to take the English-language writing placement survey, an online assessment, then you will be made aware of your status by email during the months preceding the enrollment period. Upon completing the survey, you will be notified of the writing class you will take in your first semester. You must finish the assessment before you can enroll in your writing class. 


Take the Math Diagnostic Exam

You must complete the math diagnostic exam, or qualify for the exemption process, in order to determine the class you will take in your first semester. The math diagnostic exam is an online assessment and will take place on various dates before the beginning of the semester. You are encouraged to complete the exam before the beginning of the registration period, as this will allow you to register for your math class, during your initial enrollment activities. If you are not able to take the diagnostic before your enrollment date, then a math course marker can be used to reserve a space in your schedule for math. You’ll be able to go online after you complete the math exam to make a schedule adjustment, dropping the math course marker and adding the actual course. Register for the exam.

Advanced Standing Credits


Submit Your Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Scores

If you’ve earned credits as a result of an AP or IB exam and/or previous college experience, you may be exempt from certain first-year courses. Send such credit information to us by the deadline listed below. Request your AP score by contacting the College Board and send your scores to NYU (CEEB code: 2562). Review AP credit chart. For IB scores, please speak with your high school or contact the International Baccalaureate service to send your scores to NYU. Review IB credit chart.


Complete the Transfer Credit Evaluation Process

If you completed college courses while in high school, and want to have them evaluated for transfer credit, then you will be asked to submit course documents (i.e. syllabi and/or course descriptions) and an official transcript. Equally important is an official note from your high school confirming that the courses in question did not count towards your high school graduation requirements. Any college course that counted towards your high school graduation requirements will not be eligible for transfer credit at NYU. Additional information about the transfer credit evaluation process will be emailed to you prior to the beginning of registration.

Required Online Modules

As a member of the Tandon community, it is important for you to be aware of and understand the academic and behavioral expectations in place at NYU.

Watch the Pre-registration Tutorial

You are required to complete an online, instructional package in order to be cleared to enroll in classes by your academic advisor. This tutorial will provide you with information on your first-year courses, highlighting how they are connected to your intended major, while explaining how to select and enroll in the appropriate courses for your major. A quiz will be a part of this instructional experience, designed to reinforce the critical elements of the enrollment process.

Release Date: October 5


Complete the Student Response System Tutorial

The Student Response System (SRS) tutorial is an instructional package that highlights the application faculty members use in their classrooms to engage students and, in some instances, check attendance. As a first-year student, you are required to complete the SRS tutorial and register your SRS subscription, before registration begins.

Release Date: October 19
