We envision growing a committed group of life-long student owners to form communities of learning and scholarship. Rather than focusing on certificates or degrees, student owners have the opportunity to get involved in research that is organized by both faculty and students. Student owners also have the ability to influence the governance of the Cooperative New School. With time, student- and faculty-owners can design certificates that meet students' needs.
As a student owner of the CNS, you will receive a 10% discount on the sliding scale pricing on 15-week courses offered by the CNS. You also will have access the student owner governance body, with an opportunity to join a portion of the CNS's retreat in August of each year.
To be a student owner, you will make an annual contribution of $100. It is encouraged to activate recurring contributions so that you don't forget to renew. You're welcome to cancel your membership at any time. Please contact the Cooperative New School with any questions you may have.
