  • Welcome to International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS). ISSS is currently operating remotely. We will take phone calls through our regular phone line, maintain services through virtual advising with Starfish appointments, and complete processing requests submitted through iGlobal.

    Please visit this webpage as well as the accompanying webpages for information and resources related to F-1 and J-1 immigration status and benefits. It is students' and scholars' responsibility to maintain legal status in the United States at all times and to fully comply with New School policies and procedures. You should always consult an ISSS advisor about your specific situation.

    Fall 2021 

    The New School announced plans to resume in‑person student experiences both in and outside of the classroom starting in fall 2021 and into the future. The goal is to re-open our New York City campus in fall 2021 for a return to in-person teaching and learning in undergraduate and graduate degree programs. 

    If you are a new international student and need an I-20 or DS-2019, please be sure to complete an application as soon as possible! After you receive your I-20 or DS-2019, you can schedule a visa appointment when your local U.S. embassy or consulate permits.  

    As more information related to fall becomes available, ISSS will update students in the following ways:

    1. Direct email to students
    2. The ISSS website landing page
