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.

How to Purchase
Students are welcome to purchase equipment from the vendor of their choice. We have coordinated two discounted purchase options.
CoPA has arranged special discounts for New School students through the B&H EDU Advantage Program. To view the discounted items and access the special pricing, you will first need to register for the EDU Advantage Program. The B&H EDU Advantage Program is completely free and membership is valid for two years. Please visit www.BandH.com/edu to sign up using your Fall 2020 class schedule. You can also email [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
Pre-made discounted wishlists can be found below by program.
The University also has educational discounts in place with many vendors such as Dell, Apple, and HP. The complete list can be found here.
