SHSP Registration

Registration encompasses the process of selecting courses and getting approval of course selections, as well as ensuring that tuition and financial aid issues are addressed in a timely manner. 

Registration procedures and timing vary according to program. You will receive registration instructions and dates from your department before registration opens. To see details, please select your program in the left-hand menu. 

All students should do the following before the start of each term:

  • Update contact info (address, phones, emergency contacts) in the Portal
  • Submit any outstanding documentation and/or payments to the Financial Aid and Bursar Offices
  • Purchase a parking permit (if needed) in the Portal
  • Submit proof of health insurance coverage to the Bursar’s Office or visit the Bursar's Health Insurance page

Additionally, new students should:

  • Get an NYMC Photo ID card from the Security Office
  • Submit proof of immunization to Student Health Services
  • Bring I-20 forms, passports, and I-94 cards to International Student and Scholar Advisor Elizabeth Ward (new international students only)

Schedule changes (drop/add)

You can add or drop classes online through the semester add/drop deadline.

Dropped courses are removed entirely from the student’s transcript.  In addition, students may change their status in a course from graded to audit, or vice versa, during the drop/add period. Please see your Program Director or Department Chair.

Classes (credits) dropped during the add/drop period may result in a partial tuition charge, unless you are replacing them with an identical number of credits (“swapping”). Please see the refund deadlines. (this should be a link)

Withdrawing from classes after drop/add:

After the deadline to drop, submit this  to the Registrar’s Office.

Courses from which the student withdraws after the close of the drop/add period will remain on the student’s transcript with a grade of W (withdraw) or W/F (withdraw, failing).  The W/F “grade” is given if the student is failing the course and more than 50% of the final grade has been determined.  Both W and W/F are “non-penalty” grades that do not negatively impact a student’s gpa.

To drop or withdraw from all of your courses, take a leave of absence, or withdraw from the program entirely, please contact your Program Director or Department Chair.

Registration for a class or classes is the official admittance of a student to the School of Health Sciences and Practice. Only registered students are allowed access to campus services, facilities, and the school network and email system.
