Priority Dates and Deadlines

You should apply for financial aid every year.  Here's what you need to do and which form(s) to file.

Students who miss a financial aid priority deadline are still encouraged to file the FAFSA and will be considered for federal student aid, if eligible, but funds become increasingly limited.  Applications for student assistance will continue to be processed as long as we have available funds.  Plan in advance and apply at least several weeks before the beginning of the semester for which you need funds.  If you have not applied, do so immediately.  Remember, to meet the specified deadline your application, with all necessary signatures, must be received and validated by the processor and released to NYU by the date shown below for priority consideration.

UPDATE (4/4/2014): Freshmen applicants to Washington Square must complete both the CSS Profile and the FAFSA by our deadlines in order to be considered for NYU Scholarship. Late CSS Profile applications will not be accepted for scholarship consideration. The FAFSA can be filed at any time to be reviewed for federal aid eligibility.

Please note that the deadlines for the CSS Noncustodial Profile application occur 5 days after the corresponding deadlines for the CSS/Financial Aid Profile application to allow additional time to provide the information required.

Scholarship Search Services

The alphabetical list below is a representative survey of free scholarship search services and related information.  New York University is not affiliated with, and does not endorse, any of the organizations included in this sample.  NYU does not distribute any literature on behalf of outside scholarship programs or promote their information on our web site.

Student Loan Consolidation

Loan consolidation gives FFELP and Direct Loan borrowers the opportunity to combine and refinance their student loans, extend repayment terms, reduce monthly payments, and guarantee a fixed interest rate.  There are many factors to consider before consolidating, and only you can decide whether consolidating at this time is right for you.  We encourage our continuing students -- and also recent NYU graduates -- to learn more by following the links below and by contacting your lender.

GETTING STARTED

To inquire about consolidation, borrowers should contact the servicer for each of their student loans.  Borrowers may identify their servicer by telephoning the U.S. Department of Education at 1-800-433-3243, or they may research their loans at the National Student Loan Data System.
