Program Information Sessions

Program information sessions are usually the first contact that aspiring students have with The New School. Held in an open forum, these typically include a presentation and Q&A with available faculty and admission representatives. Information sessions are scheduled at convenient times for working students. Join us for one of our upcoming information sessions.

Admission Workshops

Find out more about what The New School for Social Research looks for in applicants and learn how to put a solid application together.  We discuss the application essays in detail, focusing on the purpose of each essay in the admission process, how they are evaluated, and tips on preparing for and writing them.  We also cover transfer credits, financial aid, and other items important in the application process.
