Withdrawal and Refund Policies

Refund processing takes approximately four weeks. If fees were paid by credit card, any refund will be credited to the same card.

Parsons SPACE reserves the right to cancel courses. Courses are canceled most often because of insufficient enrollment or competition for space. Students enrolled in a canceled course will receive a full refund of tuition and fees unless they choose to transfer to another course.

Fall and Spring Terms Withdrawal Policy

Students who decide to drop a course must formally withdraw by written notice to the registrar in order to obtain a refund of tuition or remove any charges still due. Withdrawals and requests for refunds cannot be made by telephone. Mail the notice to

Registrar's Office
The New School
72 Fifth Avenue, 4th floor
New York, NY 10011

Refunds are prorated on the basis of the policy outlined below and are calculated from the day written notice is received in the registrar's office.

One week before the first class meeting: tuition minus 10 percent
After the first class meeting: tuition minus 20 percent
After the second class meeting: tuition minus 30 percent

Note: Failure to attend class or notification of the instructor of your intentions does not constitute official withdrawal. Failure to make or complete payment does not constitute official withdrawal and will not cancel charges due. Withdrawal from courses must always be made in writing.

Summer Course Withdrawal Policy

The same policies apply to withdrawal from summer courses except that written notice of withdrawal should be sent by email to or by mail to
