The 2018-2019 school year is just around the corner. To ensure you receive your Primary Tuition Scholarship (PTS) Benefit for The School at Columbia University, submit your PTS application for the 2018-2019 school year to EBPA beginning June 1, 2018.

As a reminder, the PTS Benefit pays 50% of your dependent child’s tuition for grades K-8 at The School at Columbia, as long as you and your child live within the five boroughs of New York City. A child with two parents eligible for the benefit, hired on or before July 1, 2011, can receive two scholarships simultaneously, covering 100% of the tuition.

Steps to Complete the PTS Application Process

  • Go to, click “Log In: Benefits Enrollment System” and log in with your UNI and password; then, authenticate your access with DUO.
  • Under Actions, click on “Tuition Programs, Print Your Eligibility Form”
  • Under Within Columbia University, select “Primary Tuition Scholarship – The School at Columbia University“ and print the form
  • Complete your PTS application and include the first page of your Enrollment or Re-Enrollment contract from The School at Columbia
