CoPA Remote

Student Technology

The New School will be providing a $500 technology grant to each enrolled degree-seeking student for the Fall 2020 semester. This grant will be issued into your student account and refunded to you on the first day of classes.

As our curriculum for Fall 2020 has been tailored for online teaching, we have devised this list of required equipment and software for all CoPA students to ensure students can get the most out of their courses and projects. Be sure to check out the degree-specific sections for more information.
