International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) is pleased to welcome all international students and exchange visitors to The New School and help them enhance their cultural experience by engaging in travel to other parts of the United States as well
as internationally. Travel may include short trips while classes are in session or extended travel during academic breaks and vacation periods.
All international students and exchange visitors should plan any travels to avoid missing classes, exams, and/or other required academic activities. The New School has a strict attendance policy. Failure to
adhere to university attendance policy may affect final grades and credit hours, which may affect an international student or exchange visitor's F or J status.
To avoid risks during travel, all international students and exchange visitors should maintain F or J status and take time before traveling to understand:
