It's kind of a hassle to get financial aid.
Basically you have to keep going to them and telling them "hey I need more aid" in order to get any help. They also do this really obnoxious thing where when you ask for more aid they tell you that you can take out
Loans (which isn't really aid).
They give you the bare minimum according to your financial status. You're not going to get much more than what they first offer you. But I still recommend being persistent.

The financial aid options at the New School were the solidifying factor in my decision to attend. I had been given some assistance through FAFSA and could afford to attend a few UCs, but I yearned for a more worldly and less disconnected environment to pursue my undergraduate studies. I sent the New School my financial information in addition to my FAFSA, went in to their financial aid offices when I toured the "campus" (Universities in NYC don't really have campuses, just buildings around the city, other than Columbia which occupies a huge gated space in Morningside Heights), spoke to a great guy working there who told me I had been awarded a number of scholarships based on need and on academics/writing. I almost got a full ride. I'm eager to see what aid I will qualify for this year. All in all, the process was very easy, and my need was met. There are also certain study abroad options that will accept the financial aid you receive from the university. Grants and scholarships are widely available to students throughout the university system as well.

Good Money Odd Process – The money is appreciated, but the amount is not nearly enough for tuition.

I received financial aid based on merit, although not too much. The cost of The New School is very expensive, so it would have been great to receive more.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
