Tuition and Financial Aid

  • Estimated school-year expenses are posted on the New School Student Services website under Tuition and Fee Schedule.

    The New School provides a comprehensive program of financial aid services including significant institutional scholarship support based on merit and need. All applicants who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are considered for Parsons institutional scholarships.

    The New School participates in all available federal and state aid programs, including the Federal Pell Grant, Equal Opportunity Grant, and Federal Family Educational Loan programs.

    Applicants to all academic programs at Parsons are automatically considered for scholarships based on merit. There is no separate application for a merit scholarship.

    For more information about FAFSA, university and external scholarships, student loans, campus employment, and other possible funding resources, visit Student Financial Services.

    The Office of Student Financial Services works with students and families of all income levels to explore financial options. One option is a monthly payment plan that allows families to spread tuition payments over the school year. Contact Student Financial Services at 212.229.8930 or
