Welcome to Parsons. Please note the following dates and information:
There are a number of tasks that you need to complete before you begin classes. New students should consult the university's
New Student Information page for details (including information about New School email accounts, advising and registration procedures, orientation details, and important dates and deadlines) that will help to ensure your smooth transition to The New School.
