• Travel
  • 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 help prevent risks during travel, all international students and exchange visitors should maintain F or J status and take time before traveling to understand:

    For questions related to travel, please remember to contact ISSS before traveling.

    U.S. Travel Restrictions

    The New School and ISSS are closely monitoring immigration-related updates and policies from the U.S. administration, Department of State, and other U.S. government bodies.

    The United States currently has travel restrictions in effect for some individuals from certain countries. Citizens of seven countries (Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen) face restrictions on travel and entry to the United States under a proclamation signed by the U.S. president on September 24, 2017.

    All citizens of the affected countries should anticipate increased scrutiny when applying for U.S. visas and traveling to the United States. Although Iraqi citizens are not included in the travel restrictions set by the proclamation, the proclamation indicates that citizens from that country may also face additional scrutiny when applying for U.S. visas and traveling to the United States.

    We understand that some international students and exchange visitors may be concerned about the presidential proclamation. If you have any concerns regarding these travel restrictions and your planned travels or your F or J status, do not hesitate to reach out to an ISSS advisor.
