Financing the IFP

GPIA/Management/Urban Policy/Media Studies department scholarships carry over to the summer and they work as tuition remission. In other words, the amount you receive in scholarship is subtracted from your tuition charge. Students are still responsible for the remainder of their tuition and the $1000 IFP program fee.

For other programs and issues concerning carrying over of an academic year (Fall-Spring) scholarship(s) to the summer session, your personal loans, scholarships, and other sources of financial aid, please contact Student Financial Services directly at sfs@newschool.edu or call 212-229-8930. The IFP Team cannot answer these specific financial questions.

Sources of aid come from the University Student Financial Services.
