These policies are only for undergraduates at NYUAD.
Attendance is expected in all classes. Although the administration of NYU Abu Dhabi does not supervise attendance of classes, it supports the standards established by instructors. Students who, in the judgment of the instructor, have not substantially met the requirements of the course or who have been excessively absent may receive a grade deduction, including the possibility of an F, and/or may be considered to have withdrawn unofficially (see the policy on Withdrawal).
See new guidelines on absences from class due to illness in the Absences tab.
NYU Abu Dhabi requires students to complete 140 credit hours to graduate. Students generally take nine four-credit courses per year: usually four during each semester and one during each of three January terms. However, as not all courses within the NYU system are four-credit courses, course load is measured in credit hours. Students must average 16 credit hours per regular semester, and may not generally take more than 18 credit hours in any one term.
NYU Abu Dhabi believes firmly that four years is the appropriate amount of time for students to take optimal advantage of NYUAD’s unique course structure, global programming, and co-curricular experiences. Students interested in accelerating or extending their degree programs must consult with their faculty mentors and the NYUAD Dean of Students to determine eligibility.
Faculty mentors will work closely with students to ensure a balance in academic workload, particularly as students take advantage of NYUAD’s scheduling system and the availability of 7-week courses.
In exceptional circumstances, students who wish to take fewer than 16 credit hours per semester must also obtain the permission of their mentor and the Vice Provost for Assessment, Institutional Research, and Academic Affairs in order to ensure a course of study that allows the student to make normal progress toward a degree. No student may take fewer than 12 credits per regular semester.
Withdrawn courses count toward your attempted credits in a semester/session. Since the withdrawn class counts toward the overall enrolled credit total students are not able to replace the credits with another course registration during the same semester/session.
