All matriculated SPE graduate students who will still be matriculated/registered in their graduate program this fall, and/or who will be matriculated/registered in their graduate program this summer, are eligible to audit one full semester summer foreign
language course for free. This is a perk offered to all graduate students outside of your program of study, and is not a requirement for your degree. Graduate students can register on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to class availability, after the undergraduate population has had a chance to register. The foreign language classes are offered through the SPE undergraduate curriculum, and service the entire university. Availability of language classes is not guaranteed.
Registration for Summer 2020 foreign language
audits for SPE graduate students will begin on Tuesday, April 21st. Please do not send an email with your request prior to this date.
The process is as follows:
Send an email from your New School email address on or after April 21st to firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, program, ID#, the CRN# and the name of the class for which you would like to register. We recommend you provide three choices, in case your first choice is not available (you can check the current availability of each language class by viewing the class finder in MyNewSchool). You will receive a return email confirming receipt of your request. You should then check your MyNewSchool account within 48 hours after receiving the confirmation email to make sure your registration is complete. You will receive no other communication from me unless there is an issue with the course (ie: the course is full).
* If you register for a foreign language audit in the summer and are not also registering for classes in your graduate program this summer, you will be charged the University Services fee of $600 (to be paid out-of-pocket).
Students who will graduate in May 2020 are not eligible for a summer foreign language
**If you are unsure of your foreign language
proficiency level, please contact the Foreign Languages office at email@example.com prior to sending me your request.
Please be aware you can only register for a foreign language audit
through the end of the add period (or by the start of the class if the class begins after the add period ends.) You will not be permitted to add a foreign language class after this time. You will also not be permitted to sit in on a foreign language class that you are not officially registered for.
Graduate students auditing foreign lang
uage classes cannot be added to the wait list of a full class. If you choose to waitlist yourself and then register for the class as a non-credit student, you will need to then pay for the class. You cannot register as a non-credit student, and then later switch to audit status.
Finally, language courses are taken by students from across the University. Though you won’t receive a grade or credit for the course, you are still expected to attend regularly, participate in all classroom activities including the purchase of necessary course materials and completion of assignments. Please consider your degree course workload and other commitments carefully when signing up for a foreign language course audi
