  • Registering for Classes

    Academic advising begins with the selection of classes for your first semester and continues throughout your time at The New School. Academic advisors are here to help you define your goals, identify unique learning opportunities, and map a personalized path to prepare you to lead creative innovation. Your advisor will be assigned to you on the basis of your college, program of study, or major. In some cases, your advisor may also be assigned on the basis of your last name, year level, or specific area of interest.

    The registration process varies by program. You will be contacted via your New School email account with more information and registration instructions specific to your program. Below is general information to assist you in planning.
