Students expecting reimbursement from their employer or sponsor can defer payment of tuition and fees upon presentation of a signed official authorization from their employer or sponsor on company letterhead. The authorization, which should accompany
the appropriate form(s), must show a current date and include the student's name, New School ID number, amount of tuition (and fees, if applicable) to be covered by the employer or sponsor, the semester for which tuition will be covered, the employer's
or sponsor's address and phone number, and the specific terms for payment (upon receipt of grades or upon registration). Payment cannot be deferred on any portion of the charges that the employer has not agreed to pay. Registered degree students can
fax their forms to 212.229.8582 or email them to [email protected] before the due date of their e-bill. Non-matriculated students must submit the employer/sponsor forms with their registration. The Employer Reimbursement Deferment/Third Party Billing form is to be filled out every semester.
Employee Participation Fee
If the reimbursement is to be made upon receipt of grades, there is an employee participation fee of $150. The participation fee, all mandatory fees, and any tuition balance not covered by the employer or sponsor must be made before or upon submission
of forms. Payment by credit card or ACH using a checking or savings account can be made online at MyNewSchool. You can also fax a credit card authorization to 212.229.8582 when faxing your forms. Students taking this type of deferral need to complete
both the Deferral Credit Card Payment Authorization and Employer Reimbursement/Third Party Billing Deferment forms.
If The New School can submit an invoice directly to the employer or sponsor upon registration and payment is not contingent upon receipt of grades, there is no participation fee. Students need to complete the Employer Reimbursement Deferment/Third Party Billing form and submit it with the employer's or sponsor's authorization. Any balance not covered by your employer or sponsor must be made before or upon submitting the forms.
Deferred Payment Requirements
Students who are deferring because they are expecting reimbursement from their employer or sponsor must submit the employer authorization letter and form(s) to Student Accounts by the appropriate payment due dates in order to avoid the late
payment fee and/or financial hold. Employer authorizations and form(s) can be faxed to 212.229.8582 or mailed to The New School: Mail Services, Attn: Student Accounts (Third Party Billing), 55 West 13th Street, lower level, New York, NY 10011, or brought in person to the Cashiering Office at 72 Fifth Avenue
on the second floor. If submitting letters and deferral form by email, students must forward all documents to [email protected].
