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.
Limited partial scholarships are available for selected non-New School students. New School students should contact Student Financial Services to determine if scholarships can be applied to the summer term.
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.
For the duration of the program, students have the option of living in New School dormitories, located in the famous Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan. This area is centrally located; class sessions will be held nearby, and the neighborhood offers many cultural and political sites of interest as well as shopping and restaurants. In addition, it has easy access to subways and is relatively close to the United Nations headquarters. Housing fees are separate from course tuition.
