    (1) The University Services Fee consolidates the previous University Services Fee and Student Health Services Fee. It includes an increase of $40 over the fee for the 2018-2019 academic year.

    • This fee covers a range of supportive services for students at The New School. Starting in fall 2019, students will also receive added conveniences such as lifetime access to e-transcripts and e-diplomas and one replacement ID card (if their card is lost or stolen).
    • The consolidated University Services Fee applies to all students, with the following exceptions:
      • Master's and PhD students who were exempt from the Student Health Fee in 2018-2019 will pay a reduced consolidated fee of $240 per semester in 2019–2020 (the fee was reduced to ease the financial impact). SENS members should contact their union representative with any questions.
      • SENS-UAW members are eligible for a $600 University Services Fee rebate, in accordance with their contract.

    (2) The Student Senate Fee applies to all matriculated students in all programs.

    (3) Beginning in fall 2019, new students at both the New York and the Paris campuses will pay a one-time Orientation Fee of $150.

    • This fee helps to offset costs associated with beginning studies at The New School and participating in campus and college orientation programs.
    • Students enrolled before fall 2019 will not pay an Orientation Fee.
    • PhD students will not pay an Orientation Fee.

    (4) International students beginning in fall 2019 with an F-1 or J-1 visa will be assessed a $90 International Student Services Fee per semester.

    • This fee supports the additional services international students require, such as I-20 and DS-2019 processing, OPT application assistance, and support for ensuring international student compliance with federal regulations.
    • Students enrolled before fall 2019 will not pay the International Student Services Fee.
