New Undergraduate Student Advising

Welcome to your first year at Performance Studies! We are so glad you are here. 

New student registration will take place on July 22 and 23, 2020. 

All of the information you need to register for the fall is contained in your departmental registration handbook. Please read the Registration Handbook carefully, which will guide you through the process of selecting your courses and registering via Albert, NYU’s computerized student information system. If you have questions about the registration process or specific courses please email Laura Fortes at or call the Student Affairs Office at (212) 998-1900. 

Perhaps you have questions: What exactly are my major requirements? Graduation requirements? How will I know which class to take? Your Academic Adviser, Laura Fortes, is here to help you figure all this out! Your first year at college can be exhilarating, exciting, and, at times, challenging. Your academic advisor is here to help you take full advantage of everything available to you. Your adviser will work with you semester-to-semester as you grow as a student, helping you to explore and take advantage of the many opportunities open to you at Tisch, through the other schools at NYU, and in New York City.
