  • Eugene Lang College 2017 Summer Program Policies (PDF)

    The New School publishes complete institutional information on the university website, including academic policies, equal opportunity policies, and information about student rights and responsibilities, tuition and fees, disability services, and completion and transfer-out rates. Policies and procedures are also published in the Eugene Lang College Catalog (PDF).

      Grades: You will receive a standard letter grade at the end of your course representing the instructor's evaluation of your work and participation. To see your grade, use the online student portal, MyNewSchool (see below).

      Credits: High school Summer Intensive courses carry four undergraduate credits. New School credits are normally transferable, but you should consult an academic advisor at your school before you register for a course to confirm transferability of the credits and application to your graduation requirements.

      Records and transcripts: You can request that a transcript of your Summer Intensive course be mailed to another college or university by submitting the online Transcript Request to the Registrar's Office.

      MyNewSchool: The New School's Web portal, MyNewSchool, gives you access to your New School email account; your student personal record; your registration, billing, and grades information; library resources; announcements; special offers for the New School community; and university news and events.
