Non-NYU Students

If your college or university has a partnership with NYU Global Academic Programs the cost of tuition may be less than the posted figures. Inquire with your study abroad office to find out if there is a partnership with NYU.


Costs listed above range from doubles to triples in student residence halls. Limited single rooms are avaible at a higher cost. Students participating in this program are required to live in NYU housing.  

Study Away housing costs, depending upon the site and the accommodation option selected, usually include: utilities, insurance, access to health professionals and medical resources, immigration fees, 24-hour security, cleaning services, and meals. These factors impact prices and guarantee that both NYU and the student are in compliance with local legislation. NYU does all it can to keep housing costs low while maintaining the high quality of services and facilities we provide - which are among the most comprehensive in the Study Away field. A cancelation fee may be assessed if a student's written request to cancel the housing license be approved.


NYU Accra offers a meal plan, which provides students with dinner Monday through Friday. Costs for the meal plan are included in the housing fee.


Students planning to travel extensively outside the program parameters on weekends and holidays should budget accordingly. With the exception of tuition, all costs are estimated and may vary depending on the student's budget.In addition, student insurance (health and accident) is mandatory and will vary according to individual policies.

Excursions/Cultural Activities

Some excursions and cultural activities are included in tuition costs.


NYU’s Electronic billing system is the official means of generating tuition bills for all enrolled students. Within a few weeks of registering for classes, students (with the exception of visiting students whose home schools choose to bill them directly for their term at NYU) will receive a message at their official NYU e-mail address notifying them that a bill for tuition, fees, and housing is now available.

Please visit the NYU Bursar Web-site for details about the E-bill process.

Students going to NYU Accra will be billed an estimated housing charge. This estimate is used as a “placeholder charge” until we place students in their final housing assignment; the initial charge is unrelated to the final housing charge. There are two reasons we do this:

  • Students on financial aid have loans and grant funds released to them earlier.
  • Students can budget ahead and pay the bulk of their charges earlier, rather than waiting until final housing assignments are made.

Once the actual housing placement has been made, the E-bill is adjusted, resulting in either a credit or an additional charge. The final charge will appear on the student's E-bill within 2-3 weeks following the start of the program

Global Travel Assistance

Provided at no additional cost to the student, this service provides assistance through one of the world's largest providers of medical and security evacuation as well as general travel aid (e.g., lost document assistance). This company provides 24-hour global services with the help of our site staff to our students abroad.
