HOW DO I DECLARE A DOUBLE MAJOR IN AN AREA OUTSIDE OF TISCH (E.G., DRAMA AND PHILOSOPHY)?

To double major in Philosophy (or in any department where there is an approved second major), you must first discuss the requirements of the major with the chair or director of undergraduate studies of that department. You must then fill out the double major/minor form (available in your major (Tisch) department). After an advisor from the second department completes the appropriate section of the form, the form is then submitted to the home department for approval. Once approved, the second major is recorded on the official transcript.

WHEN DO I REGISTER FOR CLASSES?

Registration is typically in November for the spring term and in April for the fall term.  Registration advising begins a month in advance of the registration period.  You will receive notifications regarding registration advising appointments from your department.

HOW DO I DECLARE A MINOR?

Please complete the online cross-school minor form.  Your home school and the minor department will be notified about your request to declare the minor.  Once approved, your home school (Tisch) will post the minor on your record.

HOW DO I TRANSFER INTO TISCH FROM ANOTHER DIVISION OF NYU?

If you are a student from another division of NYU (e.g., CAS, GSP, Stern, Gallatin, Steinhardt), you may complete the online internal transfer application.  Please note that some departments have portfolio requirements that must go directly to the department. Visit the department's webpage for more about portfolio requirements.  Students must be enrolled in the division to which they were originally admitted for one full year before they may transfer to another division.

NYU Welcome Week

Our 'Welcome' programs occur at the start of both the fall and spring semesters and are intended for new first year and transfer students, as well as students visiting NYU Washington Square.

Move-In

Upon arrival in the fall semester, students will check-in at their specific residence hall's Resource Center. Residential Life and Housing Services staff will be available to greet students and provide them with important check-in materials including keys, room inventory reports, area attractions, along with residence hall policies, procedures and amenities.

  • When will I receive my housing assignment? 

Students will receive "Move-In Day" instructions with parking information, tips on what to bring and arrival times with their room assignment.  Information about roommates will be included in the housing notification which is communicated via email in July. Students will also receive a move-in appointment time and contact information of their roommate(s).

  • What is move-in day like?  

Approximately 4000 new students will be moving into NYU residence halls on the same day, which makes check-in exciting and very hectic.  Students will receive a move-in time with their housing assignment, so keeping with the assigned time helps to make the process smoother for everyone.  Staff will be on hand to assist with unloading cars, parking directions, and carts.  To make the process a bit smoother, remember that many items can be purchased in the city or delivered to the residence hall after the student has moved in.  Visit the NYU Welcome Day page for information on the specific activities that compliment Move-In Day.
