Performance Studies


Step 1 - Activate your NYU NetID to access Albert

You will access Albert, NYU's registration system, through your NYUHome account. To access NYUHome, you first need to activate your NetID by following these instructions. Once activated, you will be able to sign into Albert. First-Year students are randomly assigned registration appointment times of either 12:00pm or 12:20pm. To view your appointment time go to the Student Center page (The Advisor Approval Hold will be automatically removed prior to your registration time).

Step 3 - Search and Choose Classes in Albert

Login to Albert. Search classes by course code and course number. The -UT suffix denotes classes in the Tisch School of the Arts. The -UA suffix denotes classes in the College of Arts and Science. Please use the class numbers to register for courses.

The Albert Student Center is your self-service tool for registration needs. Review the Albert Help Guides to learn features like how to register for courses and to add yourself to a wait list by using the "swapping classes" function.

After you register for courses, you will receive an email from the Bursar to view your E-bill for tuition, fees, and housing. Please pay by the payment due date or you will be de-enrolled from your courses for non-payment.

When you arrive on campus in August (remember New Student Orientation begins the week of August 26 and is required of all new students) you will meet with your academic advisor who will review the fall schedule for which you’ve enrolled. If necessary, changes in your program can be made at that time.
