Tuition Assistance

For many families, tuition is higher than can be met reasonably. Parents may apply for financial assistance to help ease the tuition obligation. Admission decisions are ‘needs blind’, made independent of the need for tuition assistance. Please call our Tuition Assistance Office at 212 774-8035 or email us at for more information. The deadline is April 15, 2024.
