    New Student Updates

    As the Provost announced, The New School is planning for an in‑person student experience both inside and outside the classroom starting in fall 2021 and into the future. The goal is to re-open our New York City campus in fall 2021 for a return to in-person teaching and learning in undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

    The first step in preparing for the fall 2021 semester is to apply for your I-20 or DS-2019 in iGlobal as soon as possible.After you receive your I-20 or DS-2019, you can schedule a visa appointment when your local U.S. embassy or consulate permits.

    What is a New/Initial Student?

    For ISSS purposes, “new/initial students” are international students who have not entered the United States for their program yet. This includes students admitted for fall 2020 or spring 2021 who did not enter the United States, newly admitted students, transfer students, and students returning from a leave of absence.
