New Undergraduate Students

Determine which applications pertain to you and file by the applicable deadlines. Do not wait until your taxes are complete to file for financial aid. As of October 1, 2016, both the FAFSA and the CSS Profile will be based on “Prior Prior Year” tax data, increasing accuracy of awarding and allowing students and families to utilize taxes that they have already filed from two years prior. We strongly encourage the use of the FAFSA Data Retrieval Tool whenever possible. The Data Retrieval Tool allows students and parents to import their tax information into the FAFSA directly from the IRS.

NYU does not participate in IDOC and you should not send copies of taxes or W2 statements unless we specifically request them. In order to help us match your financial aid applications to your NYU application, be sure that your name and social security number (if applicable) are correct. Don’t forget to include the NYU school code so that we will have access to download your applications.

All required applications must be submitted on time to be considered for a majority of institutional scholarships. Most scholarships at NYU are based on a combination of need and merit. The deadlines vary depending on which round of admissions you apply to.
