Welcome Doctoral Students

Welcome to the Doctoral Program at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service! We will do our best to ensure that you have the resources and support you need for a successful career at Wagner, starting with getting you ready for your first semester. In this online Registration Guide, you will find helpful step-by-step instructions regarding how to select your first-semester courses, activate your Net ID, register, and prepare for the semester. Please follow the instructions in the order they are provided so you do not miss important details.

Your first responsibility before the semester starts is to register as soon as possible for your Fall 2021 courses. This includes speaking with your faculty advisor, who will assist you in mapping out your program. Please review this Registration Guide in its entirety before speaking with your advisor.  If you are not able to register online or if you have any questions, please contact your Student Services program advisor. 

Also make sure you activate your NYU email account and check it regularly, as we will use it as our primary point of contact.

Before participating in courses, all Wagner students are required to complete the Academic Oath.  After following the instructions in this Registration Guide, you should review Wagner’s Academic Integrity Policy, and then answer the questions in the Academic Oath
