  • Newcard Cash

    A Versatile Meal Plan

    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, and purchases made in these venues are not taxed. Newcard Cash can also be used for on-campus vending machines and dorm laundry machines.

     Please note that as of June 30, 2014, we are transitioning to a new credit card company and our off-campus merchants are not currently available for Newcard Cash purchases. We are working on this issue and will post updates when they are available.

    How to Add Funds

    You can add money at any point during the year. To deposit funds into your Newcard Cash account or view your current balance, log on to my.newschool.edu, select the "Student" tab, and choose the "Meal Plans and Newcard Cash" option. You can reach the same page by visiting newcardcash.newschool.edu and logging in with your NetID and password. Once logged in, select the "Manage Account" link on the left, and then select the "Add Funds" link on the top. You may wish to authorize other people to deposit funds into your account, which you can do while logged in.

    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.

    Refund Policy

    You cannot withdraw cash from your account while at The New School. 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 a refund request form has been filed.
