Academic Policies & Procedures

Academic Policies

At NYU, a commitment to excellence, fairness, honesty, and respect within and outside the classroom is essential to maintaining the integrity of our community. All students should review and be familiar with Wagner's Academic Code and the NYU Academic Integrity Policy Statement

All NYU Wagner students are required to review and complete the Academic Oath prior to the start of their first semester.

NYU Wagner students must adhere to this student-written Code of Professional Responsibility


Students should contact their program advisor in Student Services for guidance on academic progress, required course selection, and changes in student status.

For information and technical assistance relevant to the registration topics listed below, students should review the relevant information at the weblinks provided, and then contact Wagner's Academic Services team at


Bias Reporting, Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy and Complaint Procedures for Students:

NYU and Wagner are committed to equal treatment and opportunity for its students, to maintaining an environment that is free of bias, prejudice, discrimination, and harassment, and to establishing complaint procedures for allegations involving students. Students may contact the NYU's Bias Response Line to share or report experiences and concerns of bias, discrimination, or harassing behavior that may occur within the community. The Bias Response Line, managed by NYU's Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO), provides a forum to help ensure equity and inclusiveness. 

If you are unsure whether to use the Bias Response Line, local Wagner staff can assist in managing your IDBEA-related concerns:
