IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT CLASSES

  • Spring at Tisch students must enroll in at least 12 units to be considered full-time and should enroll in as many courses as possible (up to 18 units), as it is much easier to drop a course during the first two weeks of classes than it is to add a course.
  • Students can ONLY enroll in UT (undergraduate) courses. Students should not click on any department code that includes GT (graduate) courses.
  • Not all courses listed in the course search allow non-majors to enroll. Please use the registration guide given during your advisement session to help guide you.

HOW TO SEARCH FOR CLASSES

  • Step 1: Follow the link to Albert Course Search.
  • Step 2: Look to the far right of the screen to select a term. Students may only see upcoming terms when they become available to the entire school (late October for Spring Semester).
  • Step 3: Scroll down to Tisch School of the Arts.
  • Step 4: Click on the Tisch department in which you wish to view courses. Use the instructions below to see which courses are available to Spring at Tisch students in each department.
  • Step 5: Scroll through the courses listed within the department code and click on the green arrow next to the text "click here to learn more." This is where you will see the notes section for that course.
  • Step 6: Review the notes for each section of the course you are interested in. Only sections that say "open to non-majors" are automatically available to Spring at Tisch students. 
  • Step 7: Review the course description and determine whether or not a prerequisite or previous experience is required (this may also be listed in the notes section).
  • Step 8: Review the course description and class notes to determine if a lab fee is associated with the class. Lab fees are only refunded if a student drops the course before the 3rd week of classes.
  • Step 9: Review the days and times the course meets to determine if the course will fit into your schedule.
  • Step 10: Add this course to the registration Google form, found in the Spring at Tisch registration guide you are sent during your advisement session after you apply to the program.
