NYU Leonard N. Stern School of Business
CROSS-REGISTRATION IN STERN COURSES
Registration for coursework at the Stern Graduate School of Business is open to students from other schools at New York University only during specific periods each term. Generally, fall cross-registration is in June, spring in November/December, and summer cross-registration occurs in April.
FALL 2014 CROSS-REGISTRATION SCHEDULE
May 5 - June 6: Submission request period for Wagner students – via Wagner’s online form
Mid June: Wagner sends forms to Stern
Early August: Stern will then send results/permission codes back to Wagner Academic Services
Students have 2 business days to use permission code(s) on Albert; if the access code is not used in the allotted time, it will expire. Students must notify Wagner Academic Services if they will not be registering for the Stern course to ensure that Stern removes them from registration on their side (otherwise, students could be registered for a course they do not wish to take!). If a student does not use their code in the allotted time and it expires, s/he loses the ability to register for the course.
We suggest you register for backup courses so you can ensure you will have the necessary credits/classes you need.
Students must fulfill Stern course prerequisites via one of the following and attach relevant documents to online request form (right side of page)
- Successfully completed the Stern course [must attach transcript]
- Successfully completed equivalent course at Wagner [must attach brief memo explaining overlap, Wagner syllabus, and Stern prerequisite’s syllabus]
- Earned an undergraduate major or masters in subject area [see accepted list here and must attach transcript]
- Passed Stern proficiency exam [see exam policy here; must attach documentation]
- Obtained CPA license [see here; must attach documentation of certification]
