The New School for Social Research

Academic Affairs


  • Registration for classes and maintenance of status takes place before the semester begins. The New School for Social Research emails information about registration procedures and deadlines to new students in advance. An orientation is also held for them at the beginning of each semester.

    Continuing students register online in April and May for the fall semester and in November for the spring semester.

    Each student is assigned a student advisor from his or her department to provide support and guidance during the registration process. Your advisor’s approval (ALT PIN) is required for all course registrations.

    Following registration, Student Financial Services mails students their class schedules with an invoice showing tuition and fees paid and balances outstanding. Registration is not complete until payment or payment arrangements have been made. Students who do not complete registration and payment (or make payment arrangements) by the deadline are charged a late fee.

    For more information, see the University Registrar's Registration Guide.
