Cross-Registration for the Fall 2024 semester will open in May, but requests will not be processed until August.

Graduate students enrolled in other NYU graduate programs may request enrollment in FRE courses for up to 6 credits per semester with the approval of their graduate program advisor. Undergraduate students are not allowed to take courses in the MS in Financial Engineering program, except for those in a combined BS/MS program.

It is the student's responsibility to consult with their academic advisor if the courses they plan to take satisfy the degree requirements in their program and to obtain approval to enroll in Financial Engineering courses via the FRE cross-registration form.

Please review the NYU cross-school registration policy prior to submitting cross-registration requests.
