Academic Questions

Undergraduate classes transitioned to an online platform on Monday, March 16.  For information regarding graduate classes, please consult your Program Director or Dean. Please check your YU email or check our website for updates and information.

Students should work with their professors to determine the best method to make up missed classes or homework. If it is determined that a student cannot make up missed classes or homework, students should consult their advisor, as well as review the Academic Catalog and applicable deadlines for withdrawal from a class included in the revised Academic Calendars for their School or Program. (Undergraduate calendars can be found at: https://www.yu.edu/registrar/ug-calendar)

Please review your School or Program’s Academic Calendar and applicable deadlines for withdrawal from a class included in the revised Academic Calendars for your School or Program. (Undergraduate calendars can be found at: https://www.yu.edu/registrar/ug-calendar)

Reminder: Withdrawal from classes may impact your progress toward graduation and your financial aid.

For the Spring 2020 semester, undergraduate students can elect to have a letter grade or a P/N grade recorded on their transcript. They can adopt either designation after they have seen their final semester grades. Information about the policy can be found here. Graduate students should consult their academic advisors since each graduate school has its own policy.

Students who meet their requirements for graduation will have their degrees conferred in the term for which they applied for graduation. 

As Dr. Berman announced on March 25, we’re looking forward to honoring our undergraduate seniors with a virtual celebration in the coming weeks, and we are also looking into potential possibilities for an in-person graduation for our graduates sometime in the future. We will provide updates to both our graduate students and undergraduate students in the coming weeks.
