FA19 Courses Outside of ITP

Limitations on the Number of Non-ITP Courses Students May Take
  • 8.0 units of non-ITP courses taken over the two years is a recommended guideline, but students are encouraged to take more than this number, provided the courses are adviser-approved as related to the student's course of study at ITP.

Using the Course Search Tool in Albert to Find Courses in Outside Departments

1.) Go to either 1.) the NYU Public Course Search page: , or 2.) navigate to your Fall 2019 Shopping Cart (in Albert's Student Center, under the "Student" tab), and click the "Course Search" link.

2.) Update the fields in the right-hand navigation bar to tailor your search. You will want to make sure you have the following items selected on your navigation bar to help you search for classes:
  • Under "Terms Offered" select "Fall 2019"
  • Under "Academic Career" select "Graduate"
  • Under "Open/Closed/Wait List Classes" select "Open"
3.) Remember, you may only apply graduate-leveladviser-approved non-ITP courses toward the degree.

4.) You can also narrow down your search by a number of other fields in the navigation bar (by school, by unit, by day of the week, or by time of day), or by searching the course descriptions for keywords (for example if you are looking for courses that mention graphic design in the course description or course title).

5.) If you need help finding non-ITP classes using the NYU Course Search tool, or are confused about obtaining enrollment permissions for a particular course, please come see Dante at his desk for assistance.

6.) A good standard of practice when enrolling in courses in other departments at NYU is to Google search the department or unit and contact their administrative office to make sure that you are allowed to enroll in their courses! You do not want to find out on the first day of classes that you are not allowed to take the class. If you need help finding the contact information for a particular course or department, please come see me for assistance.
