  • Policies and FAQs

  • Where can I use Newcard Cash?

    How does it work?

    When you join the Newcard Cash program, you can use your New School ID like a debit card at many locations on campus. All New School cafeterias accept Newcard Cash. Newcard Cash can also be used for on-campus vending machines and selected dorm laundry machines ( Kerrey Hall and 13th Street Residence), as well as certain local businesses like the New School Bookstore. Please check the Off-Campus Merchants page for locations and updates.

    Newcard Cash balances do not expire; they roll over from semester to semester and remain in your account until they are spent or until you permanently separate from the university.

    Balances cannot be transferred between Dining Dollars and Newcard Cash accounts, or between either of these accounts and print credit.

    How can I authorize a parent or third party to add funds?

    Parents and guests can now add funds on a student’s behalf by visiting the Newcard Cash Portal, clicking Parental Deposit, and logging in with the student's NetID and birthday in MM/DD/YYYY format.

    What happens after I graduate?

    Balances greater than $25 will be returned when you graduate, withdraw, or permanently separate from The New School and once all debts owed to the university have been paid. There is a $25 fee for processing a refund, so balances less than this amount are forfeited. Refunds are processed through Student Accounts and mailed to the permanent address on file four to six weeks after we receive this Refund Request Form (PDF). You cannot withdraw cash from your account while at The New School.

    Can New School departments use Newcard Cash?

    Yes! New School departments can now obtain a departmental newcard, which provides an additional method of payment for some purchases. The card is funded through a departmental FOAP and can be used like a debit card, providing ease of payment at on-campus dining locations and participating off-campus merchants.

    To request a departmental newcard and deposit funds, email Campus Card Services at newcard@newchool.edu with the subject line “Departmental Charge Card” and provide the following information:

    1. Department name
    2. School or college
    3. Administrator name (this is the person in your department who will manage use of the card; please note that the name is retained for recording purposes only, and will not appear on the card)
    4. Amount to deposit
    5. Departmental FOAP*
      *Authorized budget approval necessary for processing

    Campus Card Services will notify you when your transaction is complete and the card is ready for pickup.

    All Newcard Cash rules and policies apply.

    Contact Campus Card Services at newcard@newchool.edu with any questions or comments.
