Domestic Exchange Programs

Sarah Lawrence College (Bronxville, NY)

Sarah Lawrence College is a small liberal arts college with strong visual and performing arts as well as science departments. Its academic structure is similar to Eugene Lang College, while its quiet suburban campus contrasts with our urban home. Exchange is available for either a single semester or an academic year. Credits earned transfer toward your degree program at Lang, assuming each course was completed with a minimum grade of C. Please note that as an exchange student you are expected to live on campus at Sarah Lawrence College. Your financial aid scholarships and loans are applicable to these educational expenses.

To qualify for the program, you should demonstrate a strong academic record (minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA), with at least 60 credits earned prior to departure. We also recommend you consult with an advisor to determine how courses completed through the exchange program can be applied toward your academic requirements at Lang.

APPLICATION DEADLINES:
October 1 (spring admission)
February 1 (fall and academic year admission)

Spelman College (Atlanta, GA)

Single semester or academic year exchanges are available. Spelman College is a private, historically black college of liberal arts and sciences for women with a commitment to service.

Cooper Union Exchange (New York, NY)

We have a course exchange program with The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Most students participating in this exchange register for science or mathematics courses, though options are also available in humanities, studio art, and architecture. A particular class might also have additional prerequisites; please refer to the course description available at www.cooper.edu for more details.

If you are interested in taking science or math courses at Cooper Union, it is advised that you first take science and mathematics courses at Lang unless you have a very strong science and math background (for example, you have taken AP level courses in science and math and have scored high). Also note that Cooper Union’s science and math courses (with a few exceptions) are not designed for satisfying pre-medical requirements but are designed for engineering majors.

Please note, some math and science courses are year-long classes, with the first half available in the fall semester only and the second half available in the spring semester only. The important exception here is Calculus I, which is offered in the spring.

To register in science or match courses at Cooper, students must first obtain permission:

  • For mathematics, physics or computer science courses, contact Prof. Jennifer Wilson at WilsonJ@newschool.edu
  • For all other science courses, contact Prof. Bhawani Venkataraman at VenkataB@newschool.edu.
  • For permission to register in other courses, such as humanities or studio art, please contact Angela Sanko at SankoA@newschool.edu.
