  • A degree from The New School is much more than a list of courses. Most students will either enter with some credit for test scores or prior college course work or will complete coursework at another college or university during their time at The New School. External coursework may be considered for transfer credit if all of the following criteria for assessment are met:

    • Courses were taken at an institution of higher education recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and/or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, or at an officially recognized institution in a foreign country.
    • Coursework was relevant to the curricula offered by The New School.
    • A grade of "C" or higher was earned for each course.
    • The course work was not remedial, pre-college or duplicative.
    • Courses titles, credits, final grades, and explanation of term durations are clearly defined.
    • The credits were used towards a degree requirement at the university or college offering the courses.
    • Transcripts were submitted before the transfer credit deadline. See the Deadlines section for more information.
    • Examinations taken prior to college were sent directly from the examination board and meet minimum score requirements. See Pre-Matriculation Transfer Credit below for more details.
