A NEW MyNewSchool

Information Technology has been working on a NEW MyNewSchool. We are making a preview available to you now, so you can explore it and understand the reorganization of content within the portal. Rather than self-identifying by your affiliation with The New School (faculty, student, employee, etc.), the new portal has been designed to display content that is relevant to YOU—your academic experience, the services you need to access, and insight into the New School community.

This new version of MyNewSchool is a work in progress. Some features are not fully functional. The portal will continue to evolve during the preview period with changes and additions to content, design, and functionally. Be sure to check back often to see these evolving changes. We will continue our work on the new portal leading up to the launch in January 2015. Please do NOT USE THE PREVIEW SYSTEM FOR REAL TRANSACTIONS such as student registration, faculty grading, personal information updates, etc.

The launch of the new portal will be in January 2015, prior to the start of the term. This will mark the first phase of development. We look forward to working with the New School community to determine additional content and functionality needs. The goal of the portal is to support and enhance your experience at The New School. To experience the NEW MyNewSchool, go to and login with your NetID and password. Please leave your comments via the "Feedback" button at the top of the site.
