Registration Instructions for NYU Students

Complete the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium Registration Form

Fill out all areas of the form clearly and legibly for accurate registration and grade reporting. Be sure that you have provided your full address, including zip code, as well as a phone number and email address at which the host school can reach you in addition to all course information

Obtain signatures in the following order only (signatures will not be given out of order):
NYU Department Chair, Director of Graduate Studies, or Advisor
NYU IUDC Coordinator
Host School Course Instructor
Host School Dean / IUDC Coordinator

Register at both schools:
At NYU-- If you are a GSAS student, register in Albert for one section of the GSAS consortium "dummy" course, GSAS-GA 2000, for each course you are taking through the IUDC in the term. Be sure to register for exactly the same number of points as the course is worth at the host school. If you are a Steinhardt student, your Registration Office will enroll you in Steinhardt's IUDC "dummy" course. Steinhardt students are also required to fill out and have signed an internal Steinhardt permission form to take courses through the IUDC.

At Host School -- Give one copy of the form to the IUDC Coordinator at the host school after you have collected the other three signatures. It is your responsibility to find out about registration procedures specific to the host institution.

The completed registration form may be returned to the NYU IUDC Coordinator. If you choose not to do this, be sure to keep a copy for your records until your grade is posted at NYU. All registration at NYU must be completed within the first 3 weeks of classes for the term

Tuition is calculated by and paid to NYU only.  If you are on a MacCracken fellowship, your tuition will be covered for your IUDC course. Additional charges may be assessed by host institutions for lab fees if applicable.

If you need to drop your IUDC course, please be sure to drop both the consortium "dummy" course at NYU as well as the real course at the host school.

Member schools send each other final grades approximately three weeks after the end of each semester. If you have completed your course and your grade has been posted at the host school by that time you need not do anything else to get your grade at NYU. If you have not completed your course or your grade has not been posted by the time of the grade exchange, then it is your responsibility to take actions that will get your grade to NYU. Once a grade has been posted at the host school, contact the host school IUDC Coordinator and request that a transcript be sent to the NYU IUDC Coordinator. The host school IUDC Coordinator will then have a new transcript sent to NYU at no cost to you. Host school rules on course completion apply, so if you do take an incomplete for a course, be sure you are familiar with those rules if you do not intend to complete the course right away.
