Financial aid for the NYU Study Away Program comes in many forms. Scholarships are available to many students who are approved for the program, based on financial need, academic merit, or both. Also, most federal and New York State need-based financial aid can be applied to study away, and additional assistance may be available to students demonstrating further need.* NYU students who participate in Study Away remain matriculated at NYU, pay NYU tuition, and receive financial aid just as they would if attending classes at Washington Square.
Students who attend a foreign university not directly affiliated with NYU must complete and sign a consortium agreement (which arranges NYU financial aid payments to the hosting university) and must confirm in advance their eligibility to transfer course credit(s) to an NYU degree program.
Students not enrolled at NYU who apply to the Study Away program will use financial aid awarded from their home institution, and should visit their financial aid office and ask to have a consortium agreement established with the NYU Financial Aid Office.
All admitted Study Away undergraduate students applying for financial aid will be automatically evaluated for an additional need-based award: the Global Pathways Scholarship will add up to $4,000 per semester (depending on demonstrated need) to cover the additional costs of studying away. Students will receive an award notification beginning in June (for fall semester) and in November (for spring semester).
