My US Visa renewal was denied 6-8 years ago. I did not have time to renew it soon after due to my studies. Upon applying, should I apply as a "NEW APPLICATION" or does it still fall under "RENEWAL" of my old visa?

    Your statements "My US Visa renewal was denied..." and "I did not have time to renew it..." seem inconsistent: the first suggests you filed for renewal and the renewal was denied, the second suggests you did not actually file for a renewal. In addition, an answer will require knowing a) what is your country of citizenship, and b) what kind of US visa did you have? Dec 9, 2018 at 4:12

After a refusal of a renewal and a long period after that, it can never be considered as a renewal anymore.

It definitely is a new application.
