Registration and Enrollment


How to Enroll

Complete the course application if you are ready to enroll in a course(s). Please refer to the detailed course information here.

Enrolled Students

Each semester, both new and returning students register and are enrolled in NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai courses. As a new or returning student, you are required to complete several tasks before your first day of class.

If you have registered and enrolled in one or more courses at NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai, please carefully review and complete the following steps before your first day of class.

1. Activate your NYU NetID and make your online tuition payment

All students enrolled in NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai programs are provided with an NYU NetID (Network IDentification). Your NYU NetID is a combination of your initials and a unique set of numbers (e.g., aqe123). Your NYU NetID will be emailed to you by NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai staff once your enrollment has been initially processed. Your NYU NetID can also be found on the back of your NYU campus ID card. If you still can not locate your NYU NetID, please contact NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai directly.

Once activated, your NetID is your key to many NYU online resources such as NYU Shanghai eSuite Portal, NYU Classes and NYU Home. You must activate your NYU NetID before you can access the NYU Shanghai eSuite Portal and pay your bill.  

Please review the NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai Refund and Withdrawal Policy.

2. Complete the required NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai orientation in NYU classes

We have created a student orientation module and resource in NYU Classes, our online learning management system. You may be asked to access assignments and other important NYUSPS and NYU Shanghai information through NYU Classes, so it is important for you to learn how to navigate it.

Please login to NYU Classes, review the NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai Student Handbook and complete the required Student Orientation module. You can sign into NYU Classes using your NYU NetID. Under the “Information” tab on NYU Classes, you will find a copy of the Student Handbook and a checklist to help make sure you have completed all the tasks required prior to the start of your class. There are also additional documents providing important information about NYU Classes and detailed payment instructions.    

You can find the Student Orientation module by clicking on the “Orientation” tab. You are required to review all of the documents and complete all of the tasks listed on the checklist.

3. Review course schedule, classroom assignment, and faculty information

Towards the start of your course, NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai staff will send you email communication that contains your personalized course schedule, your classroom number/assignment, and your instructor’s name. Any updated information involving your course at NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai will be communicated via email primarily.

Note: Throughout the semester, you will continue to receive pertinent email communication from NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai, so please check your NYU Shanghai and personal email accounts consistently.  

4. Pick up your campus ID card from Public Safety in Room 118

Once you have successfully made your full tuition payment, you will be able to pick up your campus ID card from NYU Shanghai Public Safety. The Public Safety office is open 24 hours. You will not be able to pick up your campus ID card until you have made your full tuition payment.

Your campus ID card will allow you to enter and exit the building, print from NYU Shanghai public printers within the NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai guidelines (found in Student Handbook), apply money to use your card in the cafeteria and cafe, and gain additional NYU Shanghai privileges that are available to enrolled NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai students.
