• Registration for summer 2019 will begin on November 13, 2018.

    Deadline: Your registration must be received by May 25, 2019. Enrollment is limited. Because the courses are filled on a first come, first served basis, we recommend that you register early.

    Eligibility: Courses are open to high school juniors and seniors. International students: Please note that a visa cannot be sponsored by The New School for the sole purpose of allowing enrollment in a summer course; international students must already have visa sponsorship valid through summer 2019.

    Tuition and Fees: The cost of a summer intensive course is $4,615 plus fees for four credits (housing is an additional cost). Full payment by credit card is required at the time of registration. 

    Insurance and Health Services: Students must file a form verifying their coverage under a family or other medical insurance plan before they can begin classes. The health services fee charged at registration gives students access to medical, counseling, and wellness and health promotion services provided on campus by New School Student Health Services. Most services are provided free of charge. This fee is mandatory and cannot be declined.

    How to Register

    There is no admission process. If you meet the eligibility requirements (see above), you just choose the course you want and submit your registration with your payment. The program is open to accepted incoming Lang students. After you register, you can apply for student housing. Housing applications will be available in January. 

    How to Pay

    • Credit card: Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted. Follow the instructions in online registration. Credit cards often have limits on the amount that can be charged. Check with your bank before submitting your credit card information, and make sure the expiration date of your card is more than two months after the date you submit your payment.

    If the course you want to take is closed, you can be put on a wait list by emailing your name, contact information, and course of interest to Jennifer Riegle at

    Cancellations and Refunds

    After you have registered, you can drop a course online through FlexReg. In order to qualify for a refund of tuition, you must drop the course before the deadlines indicated below:

    Before April 1: full refund of tuition 
    Before May 1: refund of tuition less 20% penalty
    May 1 or later: no tuition refund

    Housing refunds are processed separately and have separate deadlines; visit Summer Housing for details.

    Withdrawal with Grade of W

    If you have to drop out of your course after it has begun, you can do so without academic penalty by filing a request for a grade of W before the seventh class meeting. The W will appear on your transcript, indicating a late withdrawal, but does not factor into GPA calculations. Withdrawal with a grade of W does not entitle you to any refund of tuition or fees. Students with questions about withdrawing from a course should contact Jennifer Riegle at

    Failure to attend classes or make or complete payment of fees is not the equivalent of formal withdrawal and will not cancel your academic or financial obligations.

    The New School reserves the right to cancel courses. If your course is canceled, you will be notified and asked if you wish to transfer to a different course or receive a full refund of tuition and fees, including housing fees, if applicable.
