Exchange students are not charged tuition by The New School.
Each exchange student is responsible for paying, where applicable, any course, material, or special fees associated with individual courses, as well as any applicable university fees (“Additional Fees”), including the following:
- University Services Fee
- Orientation Fee
- International Student Fee (NYC campus students only)
- Global Campus Fee (Paris campus students only)
- Health insurance (unless eligible for waiver)
- Housing and meal plans (if participating in on-campus housing or meal plans)
Additional fees and any other charges incurred (including but not limited to damage costs) by the exchange student will be billed directly to the student for the amount due.
The Student Accounts office will electronically issue an invoice of charges and fees. A notification will be sent to the exchange student’s New School email address notifying them that the invoice is ready to view via the
my.newschool.edu student portal. Exchange students are responsible for payment of all charges, and failure to remit payment by the payment due date may result in late penalty fees, automatic
withdrawal from courses, or withholding of academic transcripts until the outstanding balance is resolved. Exchange students can remit payment via the university’s accepted forms of payment.
If invoice charges will be paid by the exchange student’s home institution or another third party, the exchange student should complete the following Third Party/Sponsor Payment process:
- The exchange student comes to The New School and registers for courses.
- Student Accounts generates an invoice of appropriate fees to the exchange student's account.
- Upon issuance of the invoice, the exchange student submits a formal letter (see guidelines below) to Student Accounts either in person (72 Fifth Avenue, 2nd floor) or by email ([email protected] with the subject line “Third Party”) from the third party or sponsor confirming coverage and intent to pay for the exchange student's fees. The exchange student does not have to wait until they receive an invoice to submit the letter.
- Student Accounts confirms its receipt of the letter from the exchange student and provides a Third Party Deferment Form for the student to complete. If the exchange student does not hand in the form right away and receives a bill from Student Accounts,
the exchange student must submit the form by the payment due date to avoid incurring a late payment fee.
- Once the exchange student submits both the letter and the form, the Student Accounts office places a memo on the exchange student’s account for the amount expected to be paid by the third party or sponsor.
- After the add/drop period for class registration ends, Student Accounts sends an invoice to the exchange student’s sponsor or third party for payment.
The third party or sponsor letter must:
- Be on official letterhead
- Indicate the current date
- Provide the student’s full name (and New School ID number, if available)
- State if the third party or sponsor will cover all tuition and fees, state the specific fees, or indicate the amount that will be covered
- Indicate how long the third party or sponsor will cover the amount stated (e.g., covering fees for the spring or fall semester, the academic year, two years, etc.)
- Provide the full name of a contact person with a contact phone number and/or email details for the third-party or sponsor
- State that the third party or sponsor would like to receive an invoice from The New School
- Provide an address where the invoice should be mailed or provide an email address where the invoice can be emailed (preferred)
