Inter-University Doctoral Consortium

The New School for Social Research is a member of the graduate-level Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC), along with divisions of the universities listed below. Students in approved doctoral programs at these institutions have the opportunity to take courses at any other participating institution after securing the approval of their academic advisor and home school IUDC coordinator, the course instructor, and the host school's IUDC coordinator. Students must be in a doctoral track, and the course taken may not be identical to courses offered at the home institution. At The New School for Social Research, Eric Godoy, coordinator of Student Advising in the Office of Academic Affairs, serves as IUDC coordinator for consortium approval purposes. Students in the final semester of their master's degree and in a doctoral track can obtain special permission from Tsuya Yee, assistant dean of Academic Affairs, before applying to take a consortium course; first-year MA students are not eligible to participate.

Inter-university cross-registration forms, guidelines, and procedures are available in the Office of Academic Affairs and Scholarships. Students register and pay tuition at their home institutions for all courses offered through the consortium, but there may be special fees payable to the host institution. Students cross-registered in the consortium can use the libraries of a host institution while enrolled in its courses. Summer consortium courses are not available to New School students.
