NYU Steinhardt
New Undergraduate Experience
Online Orientation Portal

The Online Orientation Portal is LIVE!
This interactive website provides you with detailed information about NYU Steinhardt, your program of study, how to craft your first semester schedule, and the steps you’ll need to take to register for your classes. Completing your Online Orientation is the crucial first part of your New Undergraduate Experience.

You must complete each section of the portal in the following order:

  1. Getting Started
  2. Understanding Your Program
  3. The Nuts and Bolts
  4. Connecting with the Community
  5. Next Steps

For PRIORITY REGISTRATION complete all sections of the Online Orientation Portal before 9:00AM EDT on Thursday, June 2nd. Later that day, your advisor will remove the hold so that you are able to begin the process of enrollment at 12:00 PM EDT using NYU ALBERT.

You do not need to access NYU ALBERT exactly at 12:00 PM – the system becomes available to you at this time to complete enrollment. We encourage you to complete registration before 9:00AM EDT on Monday, June 6th so that your advisor can check and confirm your schedule during the week of June 6th - 10th. 

If you miss the June 2nd deadline, you will have until Monday June 13th at 9:00AM EDT to complete all sections of the Online Orientation Portal for SECOND WAVE REGISTRATION. Your next opportunity to begin enrollment will be on Monday, June 13th at 12:00 PM EDT.
