Registration —

1. When does Registration begin?

The registration schedule has been published here on the Registration Dates and Policies website. To make the registration process as fair as possible, registration dates and times are assigned based on the number of credits a student has earned at the time of registration. This does not include the courses in progress. To check your earned credits, go to your My New School account, click on the Academics tab, and click “Check your Earned Credits.” Once you know your number of earned credits, you can review the registration schedule. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor prior to their registration date to discuss degree progress and choose classes. Students can schedule appointments with their advisor through Starfish or by email.

2. What classes do I need to take for my major at each year level?

During sophomore year, students are introduced to the Communication Design curriculum. A curriculum is a series of classes you have to take in order to earn a degree. Each semester of classes builds on what you learn in previous semesters, so you have to take them in the right order. In fall of your sophomore year, you will take Core Studio: Typography (PUCD 2025), Core Lab: Typography (PUCD 2026), and Creative Computing (PUCD 2035). In the spring of your sophomore year, you will take Core Studio: Interaction (PUCD 2125), Core Lab: Interaction (PUCD 2126), and Advanced Typography (PUCD 2130).

Junior year has fewer major requirements, which allows students to explore electives on Parsons’ New York campus and abroad. During the fall semester of your junior year, you will begin to combine what you learned in Typography and Interaction towards a specific application of communication design in Topics (PUCD 3095), and explore other applications through electives. During the spring semester of your junior year, you will take Collaborative Studio (PSAM 3050 or PSAM 3060). Keep in mind that for every Topics class (6 credits), we offer an opportunity to explore similar and overlapping content in the PSAM elective space, broken into two 3-credit courses. Not sure if you’d like to deep dive into Editorial or Web/Mobile products? Choose one for Topics, and explore the other in the PSAM elective space.

In senior year, you will work towards integrating all of your previous coursework in Thesis 1 (PUCD 4205) in the fall, and Thesis 2 (PUCD 4210) in the spring. In these classes, you will investigate your design process and create a series of independent projects.

If you are a transfer student from another institution, you are strongly encouraged to meet with your academic advisor, as well as the Transfer Student Specialist, Amanda Avci (avcia@newschool.edu), to review how your credits will be applied to your Parsons degree. Transfer students who wish to expedite their degree may take Topics alongside Thesis 1. Non-transfer students may not register for Topics and Thesis one at the same time.

3. How many credits can I register for?

Full-time students can register for 12 – 18 credits, though it is strongly recommended that students register for 15 credits every semester to stay on track for graduation within four years. Students who register for fewer than 12 credits are considered part-time. International students must maintain full-time status to remain in compliance with their visa, and will be restricted from dropping below 12 credits in the registration portal.

4. I tried to register for a class that was full. How does the waitlist work and what can I do next to try to get into the class?

Course capacities are set by the University, not by individual professors. The University monitors class sizes and waitlists to maintain fairness in the registration process and to comply with New York State fire codes. To try to get a seat in a full course, please use the dropdown menu in your registration portal to add yourself to the waitlist. If a seat becomes available, the registration system will offer the seat to the first student on the waitlist, who will have 24 hours to register for the course. If this student misses the 24 hour window, the seat will automatically be offered to the next student on the waitlist. Joining a waitlist does not guarantee a spot in a closed course. You should consider the classes you are waitlisted for as “wishlist classes,” and should not count waitlisted classes as part of your schedule. You should register for 15 credits of open classes each semester. To maintain a fair registration process, program directors, professors and advisors do not generally override the automated waitlist system to get a student a seat in a closed class.

5. Can I audit a class?

No, undergraduate students are not permitted to audit any classes.

6. I tried to register for a course but got a restriction. Is there any way I can take the course?

It depends on which College or School hosts the course. Parsons uses permission forms for students to petition to get into restricted courses. The course planner(s) review these permission forms, and make decisions based on a student’s previous experience in the subject area and availability of seats. Students can access these permission forms through their My New School page in the Academics Tab. Scroll down to the Registration Information portlet and click the link for Parsons Course Permission Request Form. Unless otherwise noted in the Course Catalog or in ClassFinder, please do not email the professor of a restricted course to ask for a seat.

Eugene Lang class typically have fewer restrictions, but occasionally you will see a level restriction or a major restriction. For level restrictions, email the faculty member to get written consent to take the class. For major restrictions, email the faculty member and chair of the department to get written consent from both. Please note, LFYW classes and LNGC 1400 and 1500 classes are open to freshmen only.

In the School of Public Engagement (SPE), you may see a level restriction or a major restriction. Level restrictions occur when an undergraduate student wishes to register for a graduate level course. Only seniors may ask for permission to take graduate classes, and they must obtain written permission from the Graduate Advisor and/or the Director of Student Affairs in the graduate program that hosts the desired course. The instructor must also give written consent. Students will get major restrictions for Media Studies classes. For permission to take a Media Studies class, you must obtain written permission from the instructor and Robbie Powers (robbiepowers@newschool.edu). No undergraduate students will be permitted to take NMDM (Media Management) classes.

The College of Performing Arts (CoPA) restricts students outside of CoPA majors. To get permission to take a CoPA course, you must get written permission from the professor and the appropriate Department of Student Affairs staff member. For Mannes classes, contact Bill Gustafson (gustafson@newschool.edu). For Jazz classes, contact Keller Coker (keller@newschool.edu). For Drama classes, contact Jennifer Holmes (jennifer.holmes@newschool.edu).

7. Where can I find a list of all the classes offered?

You can use both the Undergraduate Course Catalog (UCC) and ClassFinder (CF) to find available classes. Use the UCC to see what will be offered at the University in a given semester, and CF to learn about any course restrictions and if there are available seats.

8. What are program electives and how do I find them?

Program electives are studio-based and/or business courses that are not core requirements for your major. Liberal arts and humanities courses will not count as program electives. To find a list of program electives, go to the University Course Catalog. Then follow the steps below:

  1. Use the boxes labeled “School” and “Term” and select “Parsons” and your preferred semester.
  2. Click on the red box labeled “Filter Search Results.”
  3. Click the button for Degree Students.
  4. In the “Campus Location” box please select “New York City.”
  5. Unclick “Graduate Courses” and “Non-Liberal Arts.”
  6. In the search bar at the top of the screen, you can type in keywords, like “fashion,” “marketing,” “knitting,” etc. and the Course Catalog will bring up courses related to your interest.
  7. You need to click on each individual course to see how many sections are available and which of the sections are open.
  8. You can also use the “Subject Code” box and search by course codes, such as PSAM, PUCD, PSOF, etc.

9. What are liberal arts electives and how do I find them?

Liberal arts courses are lecture and seminar classes that are not studio-based. They can be found in Parsons, Eugene Lang, and the School of Public Engagement. To find a list of liberal arts electives, go to the University Course Catalog. Then follow the steps below:

  1. Use the “Term” drop down menu to select your preferred semester.
  2. Click on the red box labeled “Filter Search Results.”
  3. Use “Campus Location” drop down menu to select “New York City.”
  4. Unclick the button for “Graduate Courses.”
  5. Click the button for “Liberal Arts.”
  6. You need to click on each individual course to see how many sections are available and which of the sections are open.
  7. You can also use the “Subject Code” box and search by course codes, such as ULEC, PLVS, PLAH, etc.
  8. If you are looking for a ULEC course, use the “Subject Code” box to select ULEC. The ULEC course requirement can only be filled by courses in the ULEC subject code.

10. I took classes at another university before coming to Parsons, can I have those transferred in?

Transfer students can receive up to 60 credits for college classes completed elsewhere that are similar in content, purpose, and standards to those offered at Parsons. In order for your transfer credits to be considered, you must have provided official transcripts to Parsons along with your admissions application. Schools not listed on the admissions application will not be considered for transfer credit. Only classes for which grades of C or better were assigned will be considered for transfer credit.

11. Can I take classes at another university and have them transferred in?

If you are already working towards a degree at Parsons, you may transfer up to 9 credits from another institution. In order to take classes elsewhere, you must be in good academic standing and have completed any required ESL coursework. Before enrolling in classes at another institution, you must meet with your academic advisor to review your eligibility and choose classes that will apply towards your degree. Please note, students must take all required classes (such as core studios, core labs, and liberal arts requirements like ULECs) at The New School. Credits taken at another institution can only be applied towards program electives or liberal arts electives, with credits assigned according to contact hours. For every fifteen (15) hours of class time, students receive one (1) credit. Therefore, you should find classes that meet for 45 hours if you would like to earn three (3) credits.

12. What are my options for taking a semester off?

You may take a personal or medical Leave of Absence for up to four consecutive semesters. For either type of leave, you must complete the Leave of Absence form online through your My New School account in the Academics tab. Before taking a Leave of Absence, you should consult with your academic advisor to create an academic for your course progression. Because Communication Design major classes are offered once per year, taking one semester off may delay your time to graduation.

If you are an international student, you should also meet with an ISS advisor to determine how a Leave of Absence will impact your visa. Any student who receives financial aid should also schedule a time to meet with Student Financial Services about how taking a leave could impact financial aid.

13. I want to add a minor but I’m not sure what classes will count towards it or how to declare it.

The New School offers more than 50 minors that can enrich a student’s academic experience. Each minor has its own information page with a description of the minor, the credit requirements and available classes, and contact information for the faculty advisor.

Only the classes listed on the minor information page can be applied towards a minor. Classes taken elsewhere or during a semester abroad cannot be applied towards a minor. If a minor curriculum includes any of your core requirements (such as Creative Computing, History of Design, or Topics), you can apply one such core requirement to your minor. Students can choose to fulfill their program or liberal arts electives with classes that are also included in their minor curriculum, fulfilling both requirements at one time.

Because of the rigor of the Parsons curricula, you can only declare one minor. Students can declare or change a minor by logging in to my.newschool.edu, clicking on the Academics tab, and then clicking on the link to Major/Minor Declarations. To start a minor in the fall, submit an application by March 1. Notification of decision on minor applications happens by April 1. To start a minor in the spring, submit an application by October 1. Notification of decision on minor applications happens by November 1 (December 15 for Post-Genre Music). Some minors, including Fashion Communications and Creative Entrepreneurship, require an application. Consult the minor information page to find out whether your chosen minor requires an application.

Study Abroad —

1. When can I study abroad?

Communication Design majors study abroad during the spring semester of their junior year. Students may choose to take classes at another institution over the summer; that falls under the Taking Courses Elsewhere policy, even if the institution is in another country. Please refer to the TCE policies in this guide for summer study abroad questions.

2. Where can I study abroad?

Parsons students have three main ways they can study abroad:

  1. Parsons Paris – Studying at Parsons Paris offers students the flexibility of taking New School classes abroad while learning in the Parisian context and having the opportunity to live in Paris. Students may study at Parsons Paris in either the fall or spring semester.
  2. Exchange programs – Parsons partners with some of the best art and design institutions around the world to give our students the opportunity to study in different cultural contexts.
  3. Direct application programs – Other opportunities for studying abroad exist through programs not affiliated with Parsons.

Below is the complete list of approved programs for Communication Design students:

 

INSTITUTION LOCATION PROGRAM TYPE
Parsons Paris Paris, France The New School
Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem, Israel Exchange
Ecole nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) Paris, France Exchange

We strongly encourage all students who are interested in studying abroad to meet with their advisor and attend information sessions hosted by the Parsons Global Initiatives Office.

3. How do I apply to study abroad? What are the requirements?

While students are not eligible to study abroad before their junior year, we encourage anyone who might be interested in the opportunity to start planning (and consulting with an advisor!) in sophomore year. Applications to study abroad are due in October of the fall semester of junior year (for the specific date, please visit the Parsons Global website). The first step for Parsons students applying to studying abroad is to submit an internal application via GoAbroad, which can be found in MyNewSchool under the Academics tab.  The internal application for Fall 2017/Spring 2018 will open at the beginning of the Spring 2017 semester. Upon approval of the internal application, students will receive instructions on how to apply to their preferred programs.

All Parsons students who plan to study abroad must also meet the following criteria:

— Cumulative GPA is 3.0 or higher. Students whose GPA is under but near 3.0 will have an opportunity to appeal the GPA requirement.

— No significant disciplinary actions at The New School.

— The chosen study abroad program aligns with the student’s major.

4. What should I take while abroad? Will I miss any requirements here at Parsons that will set me behind for graduation?

Students who attend Exchange programs and Direct Application programs can only transfer electives back to their Parsons degrees. Students who plan to study abroad should take Topics and Collaborative Studio in the fall of their junior year in preparation for taking electives while abroad in the spring. Students should then plan to take Advanced Research Seminar: Visual Culture when they return to Parsons in the fall of their senior year.

5. How do I get my credits transferred from my study abroad institution?

Students must request an official transcript from their study abroad institution in order to have any credits transferred to their Parsons degree. Students should make these requests as quickly as possible after completing their semester abroad, as any delays can impact students’ registration and graduation. Students will only receive transfer credit for classes in which they receive a grade of C or better on an American grading scale.


Taking Classes Elsewhere —

1. How do I know if I’m eligible to take classes elsewhere?

Students can take classes elsewhere during the summer or during a Leave of Absence. Students must meet the following criteria:

— Students must be in good academic standing (to verify standing, check the Info tab in Starfish)
— Students must have completed all first year requirements
— Students must have completed any required ESL classes (if applicable)

2. Where can I take classes besides The New School?

You can take classes at accredited four-year and two-year institutions. If you are not sure whether an institution is accredited, you can check with your advisor for confirmation. Historically, students have taken classes elsewhere through Fashion Institute of Technology, Pratt, Rutgers, and CUNY/SUNY schools. Before registering for classes at another university, you are required to meet with your advisor to discuss what classes will be taken and how the credits will transfer back to your degree.

3. How many credits can I take at another university?

You may transfer up to 9 credits of program electives or liberal arts electives from another institution. You cannot transfer credits to cover any required courses, such as major requirements or liberal arts requirements.

4. How do I get the credits transferred?

You must first request official transcripts from the other institution. We recommend that you ask for an official transcript sent to your home address, and then bring the sealed envelope to your advisor. Your advisor will ensure that these transcripts go to the Registrar to be uploaded to DegreeWorks.


Job/Internship Search —

1. What are the eligibility requirements for doing an internship for credit?

Communication Design students are eligible to begin interning after completing their sophomore year. Other than year level, there are no pre-requisites for interning.

2. I’m a sophomore but I want to do an internship! If I get one can I register it for credit?

No, you cannot register an internship for credit in your sophomore year. Your core classes in your sophomore year lay the foundational skills for you to be successful both in later classes and in professional internships. Doing an internship before you have acquired these skills jeopardizes your ability to be successful in your schoolwork and in your internships.

3. How can I be compensated for an internship? Can I get credit and/or get paid?

You can register an internship for 0-, 1-, or 2-credits, and credits can be applied towards your program electives. You need to intern a minimum of 60 hours for a 0- or 1-credit internship, and a minimum of 120 hours for a 2-credit internship. You may earn a total of 3 credits through internships throughout your course of study. Students can get paid and earn credit for the same internship, and we strongly encourage you to seek paid internships.

4. How many hours per week can I work at an internship?

In order to maintain a balance between coursework and the internship experience, students cannot work more than 15 hours per week during the fall or spring semester without the approval of their success advisor. Students can work up to full-time during the summer.

5. What is the difference between CPT and OPT?

CPT (curricular practical training) allows international students with an F-1 visa document to get paid and unpaid internships. International students in the CD major are eligible for CPT after completing the sophomore year core requirements. International Students must complete the Experience Learning Agreement form, which they can find in the Village (located on the Academics tab of your My New School account). The ELA will be reviewed by both the Experience office and ISS. International students must also complete the ISSS Online Service Request, which can be done when they submit the ELA. All international students ( F-1and J-1 visas) must register any paid or unpaid internships for academic credit (including zero-credits internships), and these internships must be authorized by International Student and Scholar Services before starting work.

OPT (optional practical training) and is what allows F-1 students to work in the U.S. for up to 36 months up to 12 months after graduation. Students can apply for OPT starting 90 days before graduation and until 60 days after graduation. The initial OPT application allows students to work in the US for up to 12 months after completing their degree. Because Communication Design is a designated STEM program, CD graduates can apply for a 24 month extension before their OPT expires.

6. How many hours a week may I work on the authorized CPT?

Students can work for a MAXIMUM of 20 hours per week while school is in session and up to 40 hours per week during the semester breaks; however, students must apply for a separate authorization to work full-time during the breaks. For more information, please consult with an international student advisor. Please note that if you work 12 months or more of full-time CPT you will forfeit all post-completion OPT.

7. How can my advisor help me with my internship or job search?

Advisors can help students draw connections between their interests, skills, and values and potential career paths. Beginning in their first year, students can meet one-on-one with an advisor for help at every stage of their internship or job search, from researching careers and graduate school opportunities, to writing resumes and cover letters, to networking and interview preparation. Please make an appointment with your advisor to begin exploring possible career paths and create an individualized internship or job search plan!

8. What resources does The New School have for job searching?

The office of Undergraduate Career Services and Experiential Opportunities provides a wealth of job search resources, including information about on-campus employment, links to job boards, and guides to resume and cover letter writing, portfolio creation, interviewing, and networking. This office also hosts career fairs, employer information sessions, and workshops to help students develop and maintain confidence throughout their job search.

To find part-time, full-time, seasonal, temporary, freelance, or contract-based employment including internships, we recommend starting with our online jobs board, the Village—Careers. Log in with your New School ID and password, and use the search function to filter for active jobs. Other job boards we recommend include Binkable, Dribbble, Poured, and Hired.\

We also highly recommend that students try to access the hidden job market, or jobs that are only publicized through word of mouth. Advisors can help students access the hidden job market by helping them polish their networking skills, which will expand students’ access to alumni, faculty, and artists in the field.
