Enrollment in Graduate Level Courses


Any undergraduate student, who is interested in enrolling in a Graduate-level Math course, must complete the Graduate Math Course Registration Request Form.

Carefully read the following information and policies before submitting the form.

Enrollment Requirements

In order to qualify for enrollment in any graduate level math course, students must meet the following requirements:

  1. Undergraduate Math Major or related field who is an NYU Washington Square Student
  2. Successful completion of MATH-UA 325 Analysis / MATH-UA 328 Honors Analysis I with a grade of A- or higher
  3. Math Major GPA of 3.65 or higher

(You can find your major GPA in the Academic Requirements Report in your Albert Student Center drop down menu. The major GPA will be located at the bottom of the Math Major Requirements section.)

Students who do not meet the above requirements and would like to petition to enroll in a graduate course should still complete the Graduate Math Course Registration Request Form, and must complete the "Special Permission Request" box at the end of the form.

Graduate Course Enrollment Policies

  • Students may enroll in a maximum of two graduate courses per semester. You can submit one course request per form. If you would like to request enrollment in two courses, please submit the Graduate Math Course Registration Request Form twice, once for each course.
  • Undergraduate students are not allowed to enroll in MATH-GA Advanced Topics courses unless given special permission
  • MATH-GA courses do not count towards the Restricted/Advanced Electives portion of the Math Major
  • Honors Math Majors cannot count MATH-GA courses towards the four required honors level courses. The four honors level courses must be MATH-UA Honors courses.
  • DS-GA courses do not count towards the Joint Mathematics & Computer Science and the Joint Mathematics & Economics majors.
  • Registration requests will be reviewed by the Math Department and Vice Chair Matthew Leingang
  • You will receive a follow-up email within two weeks of completing the form. Please wait until you receive your follow-up email before asking any questions regarding your request(s).
  • During registration time, students are advised to enroll in undergraduate course selections first, which can later be swapped for graduate math course requests if approved.
