Reminder: Submit PTS Applications for The School at Columbia by Nov 1, 2021

October 05, 2021

Dear Colleague,

The School at Columbia University has recently determined the Primary Tuition Scholarship (PTS) benefit for the 2021-2022 school year has not been received for your student account. Columbia-affiliated families are required to submit an executed PTS application each year. Please submit your PTS application to EBPA no later than November 1, 2021. 

The following resources are available via our website’s PTS tuition section as a guide to help you prepare and submit your application(s) to EBPA:

As a reminder, the PTS benefit pays 50% of your dependent child’s K-8 tuition at The School at Columbia University, 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, without a break in service, can receive two scholarships simultaneously, covering 100% of the tuition.

EBPA will notify you by email if your PTS application is missing any required information. Please respond as quickly as possible to avoid any processing delays. 

If you have questions about the PTS Policy, please call the Columbia Benefits Service Center at 212-851-7000 (9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday-Friday) or email [email protected].
