Once you decide to enroll at NYU Wagner, there are a variety of resources and supports available to help you make the most of your academic program, starting with registering for your very first semester of courses.


MPA, MUP and EMPA Students

NYU Wagner encourages students to seek guidance from multiple sources throughout their academic program. Just as no one mentor can fulfill all of a developing professional's needs, students receive richer advice from multiple advisors. Advisement begins with the online Registration Advisement Webinars, which are conducted by the primary program administrator of each program. Additionally, incoming students are assigned to a cohort of classmates led by a Peer Advisor.  Students are then assigned to a faculty advisor once they have declared their specialization.

PhD students

Because PhD students create a completely customized course of study, they receive individual faculty advisors as they begin their program. These advisors work closely with doctoral students to select appropriate courses and to help them make the most of their time at Wagner.
