  • All students are considered for merit-based tuition scholarships during the admission process; the Office of Financial Aid does not determine these awards.

    The first step undergraduate students should take when applying for need-based financial aid is to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Most U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to be considered for for federal and need-based aid as determined by the FAFSA; this aid may take the form of Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans, federal grants, Federal Work-Study, and institutional need-based scholarships.

    • The New School's federal school code is 002780.
    • Applications for the following academic year open on October 1.
    • The priority FAFSA deadline for prospective students is February 1 and for continuing students is February 15. Students are encouraged to submit the FAFSA before the priority deadline for the following fall semester to ensure that they receive consideration for as many kinds of financial aid as possible.
    • Students who miss the priority deadline may still receive financial assistance, but certain types of aid may no longer be available.
