Courses Outside Wagner

You may take NYU courses at other schools if you have approval from the Wagner faculty to count them toward your degree and if the other NYU school will allow you to register for their course.  You may not take non-Wagner courses in your first term, as they are electives and should be taken toward the end of your program.  Course credits vary across schools, so please keep this in mind when considering non-Wagner courses; the number of credits that will be applied toward your Wagner degree will be the actual number of credits assigned to the course by the NYU school offering that course. You will be financially responsible for the actual number of credits associated with each course at the Wagner tuition rate.

Courses Not on Pre-Approved List

If you are interested in a course that is not on the pre-approved list below but is open to Wagner students, you must follow the steps on the registration instructions page. In addition, you must verify that a similar course is not offered at Wagner.

Deadline: You must request approval at least one month prior to the start of the semester in which the course begins (even if the course starts mid-semester). Note that Stern course requests must meet the Stern deadline, which is much earlier.
