A designated Military Friendly® School for 2019-2020, The New School has a long history of welcoming veterans to its various courses and degree programs,
recognizing in their unique life experience an exceptional potential only those who have served can claim. This tradition continues with the Student Veteran Services office, which provides guidance to all veterans and dependents from admission to
graduation and beyond. Student Veteran Services (SVS) works to ensure that you are getting the support you need to transition smoothly into an academic setting and civilian life. Through individualized resources and in-person social and educational
programming, SVS creates a student veteran community that supports you in identifying and achieving your goals.
The Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students (BPATS) was founded in 1943 to serve veterans returning from World World II and is designed to meet the needs of adult students who are seeking
freedom, flexibility, and an individualized experience as they complete their degree. It is also the only undergraduate program at The New School that has a Prior Learning Assessment program, which gives students the opportunity to seek transfer credit for college-level learning attained through work experience, life experience, military experience, and artistic pursuits.
Veterans and their dependents with the appropriate academic credentials are eligible to apply to any undergraduate and graduate program across the New School’s five colleges in addition to the BPATS program. For more information on particular majors and
degree programs offered within each of the colleges, please visit their websites:
