  • 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 COVID-19 pandemic and other emergencies. If you're unable to meet our priority deadlines due to circumstances beyond your control, please email us at admission@newschool.edu. If you can't pay the application fee, please email us to request a fee waiver.

    Check Your Application Status

    Applications become complete and ready for review once all required items have been received by the Office of Admission. You can check your application status in the Admission Hub.

    Allow at least 14 days from the date you submitted your application for items to be matched and shown as received. Applicants are responsible for following up with schools and recommenders to confirm that transcripts and recommendations have been sent.

    The Office of Admission will periodically notify applicants by email if their file is missing any documents and again when their file is complete for review. These notifications are sent to the email address provided in the online application.

    If you need to change your email address, mailing address, or other contact information, email the Office of Admission.

    Contact Support

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