NYU Steinhardt
New Undergraduate Experience
Online Orientation Portal & Web Chats

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.

To access the portal, you'll need your NetID and password. Haven't activated your account? Please do so today. All future official communications will be sent directly to your NYU e-mail address.

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 Monday June 1, 12:00 AM EDT. 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 to register – the system becomes available to you at this time to complete enrollment. You will be able to chat with your advisor, orientation leaders, and Student Affairs staff members at live web chats during the week of June 1 – 5, should you have any questions. We encourage you to complete registration before 5:00 PM EDT on Friday, June 5 so that your advisor can check and confirm your schedule during the following week, between June 8-12.

If you miss the June 1 deadline, you will have until Monday June 15 at midnight to complete all sections of the Online Orientation Portal for SECOND WAVE REGISTRATION. Your next opportunity to begin enrollment will be on Monday, June 15 at 12:00 PM EDT.

RSVP for a live Web Chat with your Advisors & Orientation Leaders!
As a new undergraduate student, please RSVP for a live video group advisement web chat session of your choosing from the list below. Web Chats allow you to connect with your Advisors and Orientation Leaders during your registration week, and enable you to ask questions and get to know the people who will be supporting you during your time at NYU Steinhardt. Attendance at the Web Chats is not required, and is a supplement to our Online Orientation Portal, which you can complete at your own pace.
