Refunds for Continuing and Adult Education Students

This policy is for students taking non-credit, general credit, or certificate programs.

Please refer to the Parsons or The New School for Public Engagement (NSPE) catalogs for refund percentages and other pertinent information regarding withdrawals, cancellations and refunds.

Refunds are processed and generated based on the initial method of payment and only after the student has dropped or withdrawn from a course. If you have paid by credit card and are eligible for a refund due to overpayment, course cancellation, or withdrawal, you will receive a credit back to the credit card used to make the initial payment. All other refunds are processed as checks and are mailed to the student’s attention at the official address on file with the Registrar's Office.

Note: The percentage or ability to receive a refund is affected by the length of the course and the actual withdrawal/drop date.

Refund processing takes approximately four weeks.
