• Advising and Resources

  • Advisement is a valued and integral component of the educational experience at The New School. Lang students participate in the creation and direction of their education, working with advisors to plan their academic road map. 

    Student Success Advisors

    Student Success advisors are knowledgeable about academic policies, degree requirements, and course offerings and can connect students with the university’s extensive resources during their four years at Lang. They direct students to academic resources, financial aid, student health services, and extracurricular programs, including internships and study abroad opportunities. Through scheduled appointments or walk-in hours, Student Success advisors are available to respond to questions and concerns about any aspect of one's studies or student life.

    Schedule an appointment with your Student Success advisor through Starfish, which can be found under the Academics tab of MyNewSchool. For questions about Student Success advising, please contact the Center for Student Success at 212.229.5100 x2264 or [email protected].

    Faculty Advisors

    Lang students have more academic freedom than students at many other colleges and universities. This freedom makes faculty advising all the more important. Faculty advisors can provide guidance and mentoring as you make critical decisions about your studies and college life, from choosing courses to learning about career opportunities to pursue after graduation. The instructor of your first-year seminar serves as your faculty advisor during your first year at Lang. Sophomores and transfer students are also assigned a faculty advisor, who works exclusively with sophomore and transfer students to provide resources for choosing a major and integrating into the Lang academic community. Once students declare a major, they work with the departmental faculty advisors within their program of study.

    First Year Fellows

    First year students also have a first-year fellow, an upper-level student who can assist them during their first semester at Lang. The fellows lead the first-year workshops designed to help students develop critical thinking skills on social justice and liberal arts, as well as good study habits, academic planning, time management skills, seminar discussion techniques, and personal health and safety awareness. New students can read more about the first year experience.
