Information for New School Students Considering a BAFA Program
Students currently enrolled in one of the three divisions of The New School that offer BAFA—Eugene Lang College, Parsons, or Jazz—who are interested in the dual-degree program should first review the Guide to Applying to the BAFA Program and then complete the Internal BAFA Application.
