Summer and winter study abroad programs, which do not run in the fall or spring semesters, include the following conditions for financial aid:
- Financial aid is limited.
- TAP is generally not available in summer.
- Student loans and Pell Grants are typically used completely during the fall and spring semesters so they may not be available.
- Private scholarships and loans may be applied.
- PLUS loans may be available, depending on your cost of attendance and credit eligibility.
- Institutional aid, if applicable, may be available if a student meets enrollment eligibility for program or credits.
Winter Session Registration
Winter session programs are typically registered as spring semester courses if they are internal programs. During winter sessions, financial aid may not be disbursed until on or after the first day of spring
classes at The New School.
Students will receive a bill from The New School for participation in an exchange or internal program. Students who are participating in an external program will receive a bill from the host school or program
provider. The New School does not use the tuition funds the student paid to The New School to pay for any non-tuition and additional required fees.
Paying Tuition to Another School
If a student is paying tuition to another school or a third-party program, they need to get a consortium or contractual agreement if they plan to use federal financial aid to cover
their study abroad. This consortium or contractual agreement must be on file before federal aid can be awarded to the student. Students must contact the Financial Aid Office once they have been admitted to their program in order
to file this agreement.
Tuition and Financial Aid Eligibility
Most forms of financial aid may be available to use if a student is paying tuition to The New School but may not be available if tuition is being paid to another school. Please see the Financial
Aid for Study Abroad Programs Eligibility Chart for more information.
Summer Term at Parsons Paris
Study during the summer term at Parsons Paris is operated by a third-party provider, Academic Programs International (API), in affiliation with The New School. Students will receive a bill from
API and will submit payment to them.
Students should prepare to budget for any non-tuition costs and fees (such as housing expenses) connected to their study abroad program. Housing fees during study abroad are the student’s responsibility,
and the study abroad program will issue a bill for housing. For assistance in determining the anticipated costs of your study abroad program, review the program listing information in GoAbroad, use the Study Abroad Budget Worksheet, or contact
your study abroad advisor.
Financial Aid Disbursement
Financial aid is disbursed on or after the first day of classes at The New School. This date may differ from the start date/billing date of the study abroad program.
