In an effort to offer greater access to invoice and payment information and to reduce the impact on our environment, The New School issues electronic invoices. Students do not receive a paper invoice at their official mailing address and will instead receive a notification at their New School email account (@newschool.edu) when an invoice is ready to be viewed.

Your online classes will appear in Canvas on the first day of the semester. The first few days are reserved for orientation to Canvas and online learning.

For all online classes, you will need access to a computer, an internet connection, and a current version of a browser. A broadband Internet connection is desirable for online students. For classes using digital design or graphics programs, a broadband Internet connection is essential. For some classes, a printer, scanner, and additional software, such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, may be required. If special hardware or software is required for any class, your instructor will let you know as soon as the semester begins.
As a New School student, you have access to great deals on computer software and hardware. Visit the Services tab in my.newschool.edu, in the Information Technology Services section, for more information.
There are certain privileges, rights, and responsibilities associated with membership in the New School community. It is important for you to be familiar with the university's policies and procedures, which help ensure that your New School experience is a positive one. For more information, visit the
Student Conduct and Community Standards website.
The safety of our students is The New School's first priority. We believe that even as an online student who may not be on campus, you should be familiar with the safety and preparedness procedures adopted by The New School. For more information, visit our safety website.
The newcard is the official identification card of The New School. An online-only student is eligible to receive a non-photo newcard once he or she has registered for classes and paid tuition, or made tuition payment arrangements. Non-photo newcards will be mailed to online students upon request. If you would like your newcard sent to you, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, N-number, and mailing address.
If you plan to use New School facilities such as Academic Technology labs and university libraries or attend on-campus events, you must obtain a newcard with a photo. To do so, you should plan to visit Campus Card Services at 72 Fifth Avenue (at 13th Street), lower level. For more information on obtaining your newcard, visit the newcard webpage.
The New School's academic calendar is available online. Be sure to familiarize yourself with important dates such as the start and end of classes and university holidays.
