  • Admission Events

  • Our undergraduategraduate, and student teams host a wide range of admission events throughout the year. You can learn all about our programs, the process of applying or transferring, preparation of a portfolio or audition repertoire, and life inside our classrooms and on our New York City campus.

    Our Welcome Center building is located at 72 Fifth Avenue, on the corner of 13th Street, and is currently open to external visitors. 

    Before visiting us in person, please familiarize yourself with the university's health and safety protocols:

    • The New School has partnered with CLEAR to use Health Pass, an online tool that safely and simply provides proof of COVID-19 vaccination and testing. For the most efficient entry possible, all guests should download the CLEAR app, create a free CLEAR account, and complete the checklist for entry requirements before coming to campus.
    • Guests and visitors must provide one of the following: proof of up-to-date vaccination, including a booster when eligible; a negative result from a PCR test taken within three days before arrival; or a negative result from a rapid test taken the same day.
    • Wearing a mask is strongly recommended but not required on campus.

    Our fall term ends December 23. The university will be closed from December 24 to January 2 for holiday break, reopening on January 3. Limited tours may be available during the university's winter break period, January 3–20. Our spring term will commence on January 23; our in-person offerings will include pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and campus tours accommodating a maximum of nine prospective students with one guest each. Visitors without appointments can interact with Welcome Center staff in the Welcome Center lobby. 

    Those interested in learning more about our academic programs, admission requirements, or campus life are invited to connect online with a Welcome Center student assistant through our Welcome Center Virtual Desk. Virtual desk hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary.

    If you are unable to schedule an in-person tour, we encourage you to take our virtual tour and connect with us through one of our many additional online events.
