Undergraduate Course Instruction Modes And Registration Information


Below are the Courant Computer Science Department's Summer 2021 course offerings, which follow CAS, university, and state and city health and safety guidelines.

Instruction modes for summer 2021 classes include:

  • Online: Faculty and all students are remote; there is no physical classroom.
  • Blended: The section or an associated activity (tutorials or project sessions) are partially in-person with rotation of in-person and remote attendance.
  • In-Person: The section is in-person with ordinary meetings.

Regardless of the instruction mode, students will have an option for fully remote attendance.

A list of undergraduate-level courses for each mode can be found below. This list is up-to-date as of March 8, 2021. Course instruction mode designations may be revised based on the guidance we get from the university or state. We will inform all registered students promptly if a course designation changes.


Faculty and all students are fully remote; there is no physical classroom and no in-person component.

Summer Registration begins on April 12, 2021. Please review the Computer Science Course Schedule

Please speak to your advisor about the possibility of applying courses from other campuses or schools toward a CS requirement. The syllabus must be reviewed and the course MUST be approved as a substitute by the CS department before you take the course. Please review this page for potential summer courses at NYU Shanghai. These courses will be fully in-person.


Update 03/08/2021: All international students who are newly enrolled as of Summer 2021 and hope to gain entry to the US for that term should be registered for at least one course during the semester that is not online. Acceptable courses are those whose instructional mode is listed in Albert as "In-Person," "Blended," or "Independent Studies." Essentially, whatever term the student starts in the US cannot be fully online. Please contact the Office of Global Services(OGS) for international students for further guidance. If you are an international student entering the US for the first time in Summer 2021 and need a blended or in-person CS course, please reach out to undergrad@cs.nyu.edu to check for potential options. This website will be updated with guidance regarding Fall 2021 registration once it is available.
