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.  [May/June for Fall; December/January for Spring; March/April for Summer]

All registration requests must be made via the Wagner Academic Services online cross-registration form.

Students who submit cross-registration requests are strongly recommended to register for backup courses while the cross-registration process is underway.

STERN CROSS-REGISTRATION REQUEST PROCESS

Step 1: DETERMINE WHICH STERN COURSES ARE AVAILABLE
- Check the courses open to non-Stern students (select “Non-Stern” and semester).
- Choose course(s) and up to 3 alternative choices. Students only have one opportunity to submit. The Stern Registrar allows non-Stern students to take a maximum of 6 Stern credits per term.

Step 2: VERIFY PREREQUISITES
Students must fulfill Stern course prerequisites via one of the following and attach relevant documents to online request form (right side of page):

  1. Successfully completed the Stern course [must attach transcript]
  2. Successfully completed equivalent course at Wagner [must attach brief memo explaining overlap, Wagner syllabus, and Stern prerequisite’s syllabus]
  3. Earned an undergraduate major or masters in subject area [see accepted list here and must attach transcript]
  4. Passed Stern proficiency exam [see exam policy here; must attach documentation]
  5. Obtained CPA license [see here; must attach documentation of certification]

Step 3: OBTAIN APPROVAL (if course NOT on Pre-Approved Electives List)
- Visit this page for specific instructions.

- Please note that Stern professors DO NOT manage course enrollment, requisites, or the registration process.  Stern professors cannot override closed or restricted courses as well as provide requisite waivers as a result.

- If course is on the Pre-Approved Electives List, skip this step.

Step 4: COMPLETE STERN CROSS-REGISTRATION FORM
- Complete cross-registration form (leave all of the "Adviser Information" area blank. Wagner Academic Services will fill in this section.)

- Students must note how the prerequisite(s) was fulfilled. (Click here for more information on prerequisite equivalency)

- If course does not have prerequisite, write "none" and "n/a" on form.

*Must note in "comments" section at bottom of cross-registration form if student is a Wagner doctoral student or has been accepted to an application-only Stern course [attach approval email from Stern instructor]

Step 5: COMPILE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS
- Gather necessary documentation – memo, transcript, syllabi, approval emails, etc.

- Combine cross-registration form with all supporting documents and put into one PDF to attach to Wagner's online form (see step 6)
