• Cost of Attendance

    Add your program's tuition and fees to the living expenses listed below to determine your estimated Cost of Attendance (COA).

    COA is published for personal planning and financial aid purposes. Students are responsible to The New School only for the charges listed on their Student Accounts invoice.

    Living expenses vary from student to student. Our estimates are based on student surveys and information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These figures are published to give you a rough idea of what an average student attending our New York City campus should expect to spend in a school year.

    Estimated Student Expenses Dorm/Off-Campus Living with Parents/Relatives
    Room (on-campus housing charges vary) $15,150 $0
    Food $1,730 $500
    Books and Supplies $2,050 $2,050
    Transportation $460 $460
    Personal Expenses $1,550 $500
    Health Insurance Fee* $2,892 $2,892
    Health Services Fee* $636 $636

    * Graduate students can waive both the Health Insurance and Health Services fees. Undergraduate students may be able to waive the Health Insurance fee but must pay the Health Services fee.

    International students: Note that the Cost of Attendance figures above are based on a nine-month school year. The U.S. visa application uses a different calculation of living expenses. Your letter of acceptance includes information about the visa application. Contact International Student Services if you have questions about the visa process.

    Please take this brief survey to assist us in creating Cost of Attendance budgets that reflect our students' actual living expenses.
