• Deadline: Your registration must be received by May 26, 2016. Enrollment is limited. Because the courses are filled on a first come, first served basis, we recommend that you register early.

    Eligibility: Courses are open to students at least 19 years of age by May 31, 2016, and younger students only if they have completed one year of college. 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 valid through summer 2016.

    Tuition and Fees: The cost of a summer intensive course is $4,497 for four credits (includes a $130 university services fee and $69 health services fee but does not include housing). Full payment by credit card is required at the time of registration. Contact the financial aid office of your current college or university regarding 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 $69 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. Current Lang students must obtain their advisor's approval before registering. Lang students who are planning to register for other summer credits in addition to this intensive course must obtain permission from their academic advisor. After you register, you can apply for student housing. Housing applications will be available in January. Housing is not available for the High School Writing Workshop.

    How to Pay

    • Credit card: Visa, Discover, MasterCard, or American Express is accepted. Follow the instructions in online registration. Credit cards often have limits on the amount that can be charged. Check with your bank before submitting your credit card information, and make sure the expiration date of your card is more than two months after the date you submit your payment.

    If the course you want to take is closed, you can be put on a wait list by emailing your name, contact information, and course of interest to Jennifer Riegle at

    Cancellations and Refunds

    After you have registered, you can drop a course online via FlexReg. In order to qualify for a refund of tuition, you must drop the course before the deadlines indicated below:

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

    Housing refunds are processed separately and have separate deadlines; 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 if you wish to transfer to a different course or receive a full refund of tuition and fees, including housing fees, if applicable.
