Course Evaluations and Academic Feedback

Each semester you are enrolled in a Wagner course, at its conclusion you will receive an email asking you to submit evaluation responses in Albert (in your "Enrolled Courses" list via the course "Eval" icon on the right).  

Student Center Dashboard

Wagner's Faculty Program Directors and Specialization Heads read the course evaluations and use your responses as inputs to make decisions related to the course. The teaching instructors and the faculty reviewing the course evaluations will not be able to see your name or university ID in relation to your answers and the results are visible to faculty only after grades have been posted.

In addition, new courses and new course instructors are evaluated early (typically after the second class session). Later in the semester instructors may also seek mid-semester feedback from the class.

The more students submit responses via these course evaluations, the more complete and useful the data will be for the school and your student colleagues. Thank you in advance for participating in these surveys; we value your input.


As you choose your courses each semester, you may wish to consult course evaluation results found in your Albert Student Center via the "Evaluation Published Results" link on the home page.  NYU publishes the results starting 30-60 days after the semester ends.
