• This program is open to qualified:

    • Advanced undergraduate students with evidence of academic accomplishment who have shown a commitment to working in the area of international affairs
    • Students who will have completed their bachelor's degree in the year prior to the program
    • Graduate students (master's and PhD) and individuals pursuing continuing education in all fields
    • New School and non-New School applicants from the United States and around the world

    The program is not recommended for people who are employed full-time.

    Students who successfully complete the program earn academic credits in The New School's Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs in accordance with the option selected. New School credits are normally transferable, but students should consult an academic advisor at their home institution to confirm transferability of the credits and application to graduation requirements. Please note that we are unable to provide incomplete grades for this course.

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


    • All UNSS non-credit students receive a grade, either AP, meaning they passed the class, or NG, meaning that they didn't receive a grade for the course. An AP grade gives students an official transcript from the university. This transcript is proof that you attended and successfully completed the program. 

    • UNSS participants seeking proof of participation should request a transcript through My New School. Once  logged in, click on "Academics" tab, and then on "Request a copy of your transcript".
