Students will receive both a CAS academic advisor and a major advisor. The CAS academic advisor will advise on CAS policies and processes, and the CAS Core Curriculum. The major advisor will advise on major requirements and major-related questions, in addition to helping to award major credit for core courses. Students with a double or joint major will have two major advisors, one from each academic department. Students will begin working with advisors after confimring their enrollment and completing the CAS Transfer Portal.
Awarding Transfer Credit
Students can view their transfer credit on the Transfer Credit Report in Albert. Initially, most credit will be awarded as general elective credit. This general elective credit can later be adjusted for core or major course equivalencies. NYU Admissions completes the initial review for core equivalencies, and later, your CAS academic advisor will conduct a secondary review. If there are core equivalencies that you believe were missed, please let your CAS academic advisor know. You will work with your major advisor regarding major course equivalencies. After completing the CAS Transfer Portal, you will receive instructions on how to submit course information and/or syllabi to your department for review.
Degree Requirements for CAS Students:
- Total Credits - Completion of 128 credits, of which 64 must be completed in the College (courses prefixed with "UA"). Note: Test or Transfer credit with -UA equivalency does not count towards residency.

- Major - Students must complete a major offered through the College of Arts and Science.
