Transfer Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid involves two key steps: finding out when you need to apply by and determining which applications you need to submit.

It’s critical that you apply for aid on time. The amount of aid you receive in your first year is typically the amount you’ll continue to receive each year, as long as you remain eligible. Filing late — or not at all — can impact if and how much aid you receive in future years. Transfer students eligible for NYU scholarships are listed below.
