    • Fees: Costs associated with enrolling at The New School. General fees are charged to all students; specific fees are associated with particular majors.
    • Loan Fees: If you accept a Federal Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loan, your Cost of Attendance will include your loan origination fees. You can read more about federal loan fees here.
    • Living Expenses (Housing and Food): This figure is the cost of living, including food, for an on- or off-campus student. On-campus housing and meal plans are billed by The New School's Office of Student Accounts; off-campus housing and food are not. Click here for more housing and food information.
    • Books and Supplies: The average cost of purchasing or leasing books and supplies through any vendor of choice.
    • Transportation: The average cost of traveling to and from campus within the greater metropolitan area of New York City.
    • Miscellaneous Personal Expenses: The average cost of purchasing other necessities such as hygiene items and entertainment.
