NYU is required to verify part of their student population applying for federal financial aid. If there are differences between the information reported on the FAFSA and the information gathered through this review, NYU is obligated to make corrections to your application, and your eligibility for federal and/or institutional aid may change as a result.

Because NYU must adhere to compliance standards, it is important to be aware that failure to respond and return the documents in a timely and complete manner will result in a cancellation of federal and need-based financial aid. Please respond to this request in order to avoid cancellation.

To access the required verification documents:

  • Log on to NYU Albert and go to your Student Center.
  • On your "To-Do" List click the ‘more’ link to download and print the requested documents. You will need to have your pop-up blockers turned off.
  • Print the documents.
  • Sign (where applicable) and return the completed documents as needed.

Please note that the review of the verification documents you submit may take about two weeks. Also, if there is information that is unclear or conflicting, NYU may ask you for additional documentation. If additional documentation is needed, you will receive an email directing you to your Albert "To Do" list detailing what is required.
