  • Financial Aid
  • Our financial aid team looks forward to connecting with you virtually. Counselors are available by email and phone from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

    To meet with a counselor on campus, you can either schedule an appointment at a designated time or join the live line of our in-person queue. To set up a meeting, navigate to our QLess link and enter your name, phone number, and student ID. You can also join the line by texting "The New School NY" to 646.328.6322 and following the instructions you receive. You will then receive text updates on your wait time and a notification and instructions as your appointment time nears.

    You can also drop in and speak with someone from our team on Zoom during our Financial Aid Virtual Walk-In Hours, Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary. Please have your New School student ID or government-issued ID available to confirm your identity. Parents and guardians who are authorized users on a student's account may also make use of the drop-in hours.

    Coronavirus Update

    For the 2020-2021 academic year, the university has allocated $17.5 million that will support a one-time technology grant for all students as well as general pandemic aid for those with the greatest demonstrated need. We hope this funding will help offset financial challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has created for many of our students and their families. Read more about the grants and visit our FAQ.
