As a reminder, the Primary Tuition Scholarship Benefit pays 50% of your dependent child's K-8 tuition 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, and without a break in service of more than 31 days after July 1, 2011, 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 with the missing required information as quickly as possible to avoid any processing delays.

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