• Students expecting reimbursement from their employer or sponsor can defer payment of tuition and fees upon presentation of a signed official authorization from their employer or sponsor on company letterhead. The authorization, which should accompany the appropriate form(s), must show a current date and include the student's name, New School ID number, amount of tuition (and fees, if applicable) to be covered by the employer or sponsor, the semester for which tuition will be covered, the employer's or sponsor's address and phone number, and the specific terms for payment (upon receipt of grades or upon registration). Payment cannot be deferred on any portion of the charges that the employer has not agreed to pay. Registered degree students can fax their forms to 212.229.8582. Non-matriculated students must submit the employer/sponsor forms with their registration.

    Employee Participation Fee

    If the reimbursement is to be made upon receipt of grades, there is an employee participation fee of $150. The participation fee, all mandatory fees, and any tuition balance not covered by the employer or sponsor must be made before or upon submission of forms. Payment by credit card or ACH using a checking or savings account can be made online at MyNewSchool. You can also fax a credit card authorization to 212.229.8582 when faxing your forms. Students taking this type of deferral need to complete both the Deferral Credit Card Payment Authorization and Employer Reimbursement/Third Party Billing Deferment forms.

    If The New School can submit an invoice to the employer or sponsor upon registration and payment is not contingent upon receipt of grades, there is no participation fee. Students need to complete the Employer Reimbursement Deferment form and submit it with the employer's or sponsor's authorization. Any balance not covered by your employer or sponsor must be made before or upon submitting the forms.

    Deferred Payment Requirements

    Students who are deferring because they are expecting reimbursement from their employer or sponsor must submit the employer authorization letter and form(s) to Student Financial Services by the appropriate payment due dates in order to avoid the late payment fee. Employer authorizations and form(s) can be faxed to 212.229.8582 or mailed to The New School, Attn: Third Party Billing, 79 Fifth Avenue, 5th floor, New York, NY 10003, or brought in person to the Cashiering Office at 72 Fifth Avenue on the second floor. If submitting letters and deferral form by email, students must forward all documents to myaccount@newschool.edu.
