  • Admission Events

    • Due to concerns about the novel coronavirus, The New School's Welcome Center is temporarily closed and all campus tours and on-site events have been suspended. We plan for the Welcome Center to reopen on August 30, when in-person classes resume, at which time we will offer limited pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and single-family campus tours. Additional information about our in-person offerings for the fall will become available on our main visit page in mid-August. 

      Now and throughout the fall, we invite you to connect virtually with our Admission team through a series of online events and offerings. Experience our campus by taking our immersive virtual campus tour, learn more about our academic programs by registering for an online information session or webinar, or meet with our team at an upcoming school visit, college fair, open house, or student panel. We've worked hard to offer many opportunities for you to get a sense of the culture, coursework, and student life at our university.

      Performances, panel discussions, and other events are being hosted at CopaRemote.com.
