Fall 2020 classes

The Fall 2020 class schedule is available here.

Important things to keep in mind when selecting classes:
  • New College does not have a pre-registration system.  Course registration happens during the first 10 days of the semester.  The academic contract, due within 10 days after the semester begins, serves as the official registration document.
  • New College students are considered to be full-time enrolled when taking at least 3 full-term classes.  Students here take 3 to 5 full-term classes (or equivalent) per semester.  However, you will need to discuss with your advisor what course load your home institution will require you to take to be considered full-time while on exchange at New College.  Three New College classes may not be considered to be full-time by your home institution.
  • New College uses Credit Hour Equivalents (CHE) instead of semester credits.  Each semester-long class is worth 4 CHE.  Each Mod class (half-semester) is worth 2 CHE.
