Registration is closed for the 2014 Summer Intensives at Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts. Check back or join our mailing list for information about courses that will be offered during summer 2015. Because enrollment is strictly limited and the courses are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, we recommend that you register early.

Eligibility: You must be 19 or older and have completed at least one year of college as of May 27, 2014. You do not need to be currently enrolled at The New School. International students: Please note that a visa cannot be sponsored by The New School for the sole purpose of allowing enrollment in a summer course; international students must already have visa sponsorship from a U.S. institution valid through summer 2014.

Tuition and Fees: The cost of a summer intensive course is $4,334 for four credits (includes a $130 university services fee and $64 health services fee but does not include housing). Full payment is required at the time of registration. Contact the financial aid office of your current college or university about the possibility of obtaining financial aid for New York Summer Intensives.

Insurance and Health Services: Students must file a form verifying their coverage under a family or other medical insurance plan before they can begin classes. The $64 health services fee charged at registration gives students access to medical, counseling, and wellness and health promotion services provided on campus by New School Student Health Services. Most services are provided free of charge. This fee is mandatory and cannot be declined.

How to Register

There is no admission process. If you meet the eligibility requirements (see above), you just choose the course you want and submit your registration with your payment. Non-Lang students should visit the link in the sidebar to register. Current Eugene Lang College students must obtain their advisor's approval before registering. After you register, you can apply for student housing.

Cancellations and Refunds

After you have registered, withdrawal from your course must be made in writing by letter or email to

Angela Sanko
Associate Director of Advising and Student Retention
64 West 11th Street, room 119
212.229.5100 x2280

You cannot withdraw by telephone. In order for you to qualify for a refund of tuition, your written cancellation must be received before the deadlines indicated below.

Students who register before May 1:
Before April 1: full refund of tuition 
Before May 1: refund of tuition less 20% penalty
May 1 or later: no tuition refund

Students who register after May 1:
Before May 8: refund of tuition less 20% penalty
Housing refunds are processed separately; visit Summer Housing for details.

Withdrawal with Grade of W

If you have to drop out of your course after it has begun, you can do so without academic penalty by filing a request for a grade of W before the seventh class meeting. The W will appear on your transcript, indicating a late withdrawal, but does not factor into GPA calculations. Withdrawal with a grade of W does not entitle you to any refund of tuition or fees. Visiting students with questions about withdrawing from a course should contact Angela Sanko at; New School students should contact their academic advisors.

Failure to attend classes or make or complete payment of fees is not the equivalent of formal withdrawal and will not cancel your academic or financial obligations.

The New School reserves the right to cancel courses. If your course is canceled, you will be notified and asked whether you wish to transfer to a different course or receive a full refund of tuition and fees, including housing fees, if applicable.
