The deadline to add or drop a course is the end of the second week of the semester for full term courses. Check out the NYU Shanghai academic calendar for add/drop deadlines for full term, first 7-week, and second 7-week courses.
If you drop a course before the add/drop deadline, the course will not appear on your transcript.
Fall/Spring Semester: Students are recommended to take 16-18 credits per semester. If you would like to take more than 18 credits, you would need to meet with your academic advisor and request credit overload.
Winter Term (J-term): Students can take up to 4 credits for J-term.
Summer Term: Students can take up to up to 8 credits per summer session. Summer Term typically has two sessions, therefore students can take a maximum of 16 credits during the summer.
