Tuition and Financial Aid

If you are registered for classes you are responsible for all costs (tuition and fees) associated with your courses. Please be aware that if you have decided not to participate in Fall in New York, you must submit a term withdrawal form via NYU Albert so that you are no longer responsible for the costs.

Tuition is offered at a flat rate for full-time students taking 12-18 credits. For students enrolled part time, tuition can be calculated by taking the number of credits/units the student wishes to enroll in and multiplying it by the price per unit. Below you will find a breakdown of tuition and fees from Fall 2016

An electronic bill will be sent to your NYU email account once you have registered for your fall courses. Your bill must be paid in full by the payment deadline, or you risk being de-enrolled from your courses. In the case of overpayment, the balance is refunded. For more information about payment deadlines and accepted payment methods, please see the Bursar's website.

Course Fees

Certain courses charge additional fees such as lab fees, etc. The charge is assessed at the time of registration for that particular course.

Student Health Insurance

Due to the requirements of the University and the high costs of healthcare in the United States, international students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the NYU-sponsored Comprehensive Insurance Plan as part of the course registration process. Estimated charges for the Comprehensive Insurance Plan are $1,600. As detailed on this page, international students have the option of:

  • Waiving the NYU sponsored plan if they maintain other insurance coverage that meets the University's minimum health insurance criteria OR
  • Downgrading their coverage to the Basic Plan. Students may only opt to downgrade coverage when first registering for the academic year. 

Further details about NYU's health insurance plans are available on the Student Health Center website. Please note that domestic visiting students are not eligible to enroll in any of NYU's health insurance plans.

Living on Campus

Students who participate in Fall in New York may be able to live on campus depending on available space. Living on campus and/or having a meal plan will result in additional costs. Learn more about living on campus here

Financial Aid

Financial aid is not offered to visiting students. However, the following options are open to visiting students:

  • Consortium Agreement: If you are currently enrolled at another college or university, contact your home school's financial aid office to inquire about receiving aid from your school via a consortium agreement with NYU.
  • Private Loans: If you are not currently enrolled at another college or if your school will not authorize a consortium agreement, you may be eligible for private loans.

International Students

International Students must be enrolled full-time. Full-time enrollment is defined as 12-18 credit hours during the fall semester. For more information about requirements for international students, please visit the International Students webpage.
