Each year, The New School for Social Research accepts as visiting students a small number of highly qualified applicants enrolled in universities outside of the United States. Applicants admitted with this status may enroll for either one or two semesters and are expected to register for the equivalent of a full-time course load (i.e., three courses, or nine credits per semester). If subsequently admitted to a New School for Social Research degree program, these students may petition to have credits earned during visiting student study applied to the degree program. New School financial aid is not available to visiting students unless they are admitted as part of an official exchange agreement between The New School for Social Research and an overseas university or funding program.
The following materials are required for a visiting student application:
Because of the time required for processing documents, a visiting student application cannot be considered unless it is completed at least two months prior to the start of the term for which the application is submitted.
