  • Undergraduate Admission Deadlines

  • The application deadlines for our undergraduate colleges vary. Before you begin your application, make sure to note these important deadlines. You'll find decision letter notification timelines in your Admission Hub. Applications received after admission deadlines are accepted on a rolling basis.

    The New School community extends our sympathy and support to those affected by the wildfires in California, the explosion in Beirut, the COVID-19 pandemic, and other major emergency incidents. If you have been affected by a major emergency incident this year and will be unable to meet the stated priority deadlines on this page, please reach out to us for assistance. If paying the application fee will pose an economic hardship, please reach out to request a fee waiver.

    We're here to support you through the application process. If you have any questions, please reach out to an admission counselor.
