Stern Registration Procedures for MSCS Students

The Stern course schedule, course descriptions and course syllabi can
be found at the following website:

When looking at courses, be sure to check the course prerequisites to
ensure that you are qualified to take the course.

Stern's policy is that non-Stern students can take up to six Stern credits
per semester. However, be sure to review your MSCS degree requirements
before registering for courses to ensure that you are completing all
the course requirements of your degree program.

The only Stern course that is pre-approved for MSCS students is
COR1-GB 2311 Foundations of Finance. All other courses must be approved by
the Director of Graduate Studies. Please e-mail your approval request to your
advisor, either Jennifer Conlan Darlington ( or Katie Laugel
( Be sure to include the course name, course number and
the official course description in the e-mail. If the request is approved, you will
then need to complete a Stern Cross Registration Form and submit it to your
advisor, who will then fax the form to Stern. You can find the Stern Cross
Registration Form at:

Stern students are given priority when registering for Stern courses. While
Stern registration officially begins on a set date, it is only open for Stern
students. Non-Stern students are able to register for courses later on in the
registration process. Once Stern informs the Computer Science Department
of the dates that registration will open up for non-Stern students, the Computer
Science Department will inform the students. For important Stern dates, go to:

Stern will begin to review Stern Cross Registration Forms once they open up their
registration to non-Stern students. Stern will contact the advisor once the form has
been reviewed. Your advisor will then be in touch to let you know if a seat in the
course is available or not. If a seat is available, you will receive a permission
number to register for the course. Once you receive the information, you need
to register the course on Albert within two business days.
