For the start of your graduate program at NYU CUSP, your academic advisor will assist you in registering for classes for the first time. During the summer, you will be sent a Fall Semester Planner designed to capture your registration intentions, your elective choice, as well, your am/pm scheduling preferences (where applicable).
However, before we are able to register you for classes, you must ensure that you have completed the following steps:
Activate your Net ID
- Go to start.nyu.edu and follow the instructions. Your NetID is your login and username for your NYU email account.
Log in to NYUHome
- Go to home.nyu.edu and enter your NetID and password. Visit the various tabs to familiarize yourself with the layout and information available. Confirm that you have access to your email account.
Check your NYU Email
Your University ID number (commonly called your “N number”) is the number you are given when your application is processed. You can find it in your acceptance letter or on your Albert account, under Student Center (your NetID needs to already be activated to access Albert). We strongly recommend that you memorize your N number because it will serve as your on-campus identification number. For example, you will need to provide your N number to schedule appointments at the Wasserman Student Career Center, the Health Center, or at the Student Services Center.
Your NetID is your username for all NYU online services, including your NYUHome account, Albert, NYU wi-fi, as well as off-campus access to the New York University Libraries resources. Your NetID is also the prefix for your NYU email address (example: firstname.lastname@example.org). Additionally, you can choose to use it as a username/login at centers on campus, like the Student Career Services and the Campus Writing Center, which have their individual username/password logins.
Once you get your NYU ID Card, you can find both your NetID and your N Number above the barcode on the back of your card.
Your NYUHome account is your virtual NYU command center for all NYU academic and administrative resources. Make sure to familiarize yourself with NYUHome and Albert before classes start; feel free to click around on your own to see what resources are available to you. You can also watch online tutorials to learn how to use the NYU tools found on NYUHome. See examples below:
For additional training and help, sign up for trainings and workshops offered by ITS.
Please take the time to review, verify and update your contact information, which can be found under the “Personal Information” section of the Student Center on NYUHome (you must enter Albert to access your Student Center). Be sure to review and update both your permanent and local addresses.
Please note that all students will be required to have an “NYU Emergency Alert” cellular phone number and emergency contact information on record in order to be eligible to register for classes. In order to avoid a delay in registering, we suggest that you verify this information prior to the start of the registration period.
