The New School is committed to helping students find best fit programs to meet educational and career goals. Regular communication with advising staff, faculty, and other university administrators can help inform students on course choices and internship opportunities. In the case where a student’s educational plan cannot be accommodated in their current New School college, an internal transfer may be appropriate.
New School students may file an application for internal transfer in their second semester of study at the university. For those individuals seeking transfer to a major in Parsons or CoPA, a portfolio or audition must be completed as part of the admission review process. Internal transfer admissibility is subject to available space in programs and an applicant meeting program criteria and eligibility (see below); the university will accommodate internal transfer requests wherever possible but is not guaranteed. Please note that students should consult with the Student Financial Services office to confirm any changes in financial aid packages before confirming an offer. Finally, please consult with an advisor about potential changes in time to completion of the undergraduate degree.
