New School Welcome Weekend & New Student Orientation Guide

Welcome to The New School!

Welcome Weekend (Aug. 14-17) is an orientation for recent high school graduates and other incoming students with little or no college experience, with a special program for their parents. The sessions you attend this weekend will give you an overview of the resources and services available at The New School, and a variety of special events will introduce you to New York, one of the most exciting and creative cities in the world.

New Student Orientation for undergraduate and graduate students (Aug. 18–22) is intended to help students become members of our university community. Students will receive important information about academic policies, course registration processes, and the resources and services available at The New School.
