Newcardcash: a Versatile Meal Plan
When you join the Newcardcash program, you can use your New School ID like a debit card at many locations on and off campus.
All New School cafeterias accept Newcardcash (see below), and purchases made in
these venues are not taxed. Unlike Dining Dollars, which can be used only on campus, Newcardcash is also accepted at many local businesses in the Greenwich Village area. Newcardcash can also be used in some on-campus vending machines and dorm laundry machines.
How to Add Funds
You can add money at any point during the year. To deposit funds into your Newcardcash account or view your current balance, log on to my.newschool.edu, select the “Student” tab, and choose the “Meal Plans and Newcardcash” 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.
Newcardcash 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.

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 the request is made.
