Recent Updates: The New School has released its academic plan for 2020-21 and a phased reopening plan for its New York campus. Please check the Parsons Paris website for information about our Paris campus. Learn more.

  • Academic advising begins with the selection of classes for your first semester and continues throughout your time at The New School. Academic advisors are here to help you define your goals, identify unique learning opportunities, and map a personalized path to prepare you to lead creative innovation. Your advisor will be assigned to you on the basis of your college, program of study, or major. In some cases, your advisor may also be assigned on the basis of your last name, year level, or specific area of interest.

    Spring 2021 registration begins on December 7, 2020, for most programs. You will receive an email with more information and registration instructions specific to your program.

    Transfer Credit and Advanced Standing

    The New School will evaluate examination credit and work completed at accredited universities to be applied toward our undergraduate degree programs. Scores for Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A Level, and other leaving exams can be reviewed for potential transfer credit upon receipt of official transcripts. Students entering Eugene Lang College can access the policy online. Parsons and College of Performing Arts students will work with their advisors to apply similar credits toward their degree programs.
