Group information sessions include presentations on academic expectations, the admission process, costs and financial aid, and career outcomes. You can also arrange for a guided tour of The New School and/or to visit a class in session.
Contact the Office of Admission (see information below) to set up an individual meeting with an admission counselor, who can help you decide whether a particular program is a good match for your academic background and career goals.
