Graduation Rate

Loading...
62%
ABOVE AVERAGE

The New School graduation rate is above the national average.

62% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to The New School completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

The New School was always the talk of the town since the 70's - it's an inclusive institution for learning.

How can they call this school “The New School” if it was founded a century ago. Thouroughly disappointed, confused and hurt by the poor accuracy of the naming of this school.

Overall Rating:

I had to transfer out after freshman year because of how unbearable everything and everyone was. So many people had roommate problems including myself because the housing application puts you with your polar opposite instead of someone alike. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, is liberal. I used to be liberal until I spent a few months here – not to mention how everyone reacted to the election. These guys are literally sensitive children who will shriek at the sight of even a moderate republican (that poor woman). I ultimately made the decision to transfer because I said: "The quality of education here is not worth the quantity of its tuition" literally three months into my first year at this school. After I submitted my transfer app I found out that the school had raised its tuition 3%. And very recently, Daily Mail published an article that stated the New School had just released a list of "micro aggressions" to its students and staff – one example being not being able to stare nonprovokingly at a "non binary" or whatever student as it may cause serious damage. The school's socialists are trying to micromanage the behavior of students yet they are supposedly the main voices against fascism.Came here for NYC and because I didn't do well in HS to get into a better School. I did far better in my first year at college and got into a far better college. Good BYE.

My daughter was excited to be accepted to this college and made arrangements with admissions, well in advance, to come and sit in on a class and then do a tour of the school.We flew all the way from San Diego to New York for this. This cost me 2 airfares of $950 each, plus 3 nights of hotel accommodation in New York, which is not cheap. Not to mention the cab fares, etc. And the three days I had to take off work.We were told to be there at 11.30 am. We arrived early and checked in. We were told someone would walk her to the class at 11.30 am. At 11.35 am I had to remind them we were there and they started scrambling to find her a class to sit in on!At 11.45 someone came and walked her the the class she was to sit in on. It was a writing class - she was expecting to sit in on a modern art class, which she had told them by email several times and at check in was her interest. The person who walked her to the class pointed it to her and left. The class was to start at 11.55 am. No-one, not a student or a teacher, showed up and so there she sat in the empty classroom not knowing what to do or where to go.We went back to admissions at 12.15 pm. The guy there kinda apologized and said he could put her in another day, even though he knew we had come all the way from San Diego. I explained this would not be feasible. He then came back and said she can go sit in on a class at 1.55 pm. Except she had a tour of the school scheduled (which they had organized) at 2.00 pm and now she had to choose. She chose the tour.I really think that if they are trying to recruit out of state kids with GPA's of 4.4, at $65,000 a year tuition, they could be a little more prepared, organized and respectful.The tour itself was OK. The girl was knowledgeable, but very exhausted and had a very soft voice that no-one could hear.
