It's finally November, and the first semester is quickly coming to a close. If you're like me, you've been preoccupied with anticipation over Thanksgiving and Christmas, but don't forget that a new semester also means new deadlines. Here's a list of all the dates you need to know.


1) November, 14th

This is the day spring registration officially opens to NYU students. However, to keep Albert from crashing, every student is assigned a date and time to register based on the number of accumulated credits they already have. The Spring 2017 classes have already been published, so add your classes to your shopping cart in Albert now, and schedule an appointment with your advisor. That way, when it finally is time for you to register, you can simply click "continue" instead of having to wait for your advisor's approval while all the classes you want fill up.


2) January 4th

Enrollment $$$ due date! Jan. 4th is the day NYU officially needs a check for over $30,000 to cover the cost of the second semester. Failure to meet this deadline will result in unregistration from all classes.


3) January 23rd

Back to school! This is the day spring classes officially start, and you officially have to begin worrying about midterms again. 


4) February 5th

Feb. 5th is the last day undergraduate students can drop a class and receive a 100% refund. After this date, all dropped classes will be marked with a "W" for "withdraw" and will reflect negatively on a student's record.


5) Additional Dates

Chart from NYU website

Additionally, if suddenly during your spring semester personal or financial circumstances make it impossible for you to continue at NYU as a full time student, know that there is still time for you to withdraw from courses with a refund. The amount of your refund also depends on your date of withdrawal.
