Beginning in May, students who have reserved their place in the class by submitting the required tuition deposit will receive an email from the Office of Advising at their New School email address. This email introduces students' academic advisors and provides directions for scheduling an advising appointment and for registration. All new students must submit the required tuition deposit in order to register. For more information about how to reserve your place in the class, visit the Accepted Students page.

    First-year BFA and BBA students can learn more about preparing for their first semester by visiting the First-Year Students page. Sophomore and junior transfer students in the BFA, BBA, and BS degree programs should review the Transfer Students page for transfer credit policies and information about preparing for their first semester at Parsons.


    In order to ensure a smooth transition to The New School, new students should review the information on the New Students page, which provides information about required immunization forms, mandatory online tutorials, obtaining a student ID card, and other essential items.
