Financial Aid Application Protocols for Visiting Students

  • Submit the NYU Summer in NYC Visiting Student Application
  • When the Office of University Programs receives your registration form, you will receive an email including your NYU ID number and a link to the NYU Summer Financial Aid Application for Non-NYU (Visiting) Students.*
  • Submit your financial aid application to NYU by the appropriate deadline. Failure to do so may prevent your aid from being received by NYU in time for the start of the session.
  • Application deadlines:
    • Federal Financial Aid (Consortium Agreement) - Priority Deadline: July 20
    • Private (Non-Federal) Alternative Loan - Priority Deadline: July 20

*IMPORTANT: You must apply for loans and negotiate consortium agreements on your own. The NYU Summer Financial Aid Application for Non-NYU (Visiting) Students is used ONLY to alert NYU's Office of Financial Aid that external funding will be arriving—submitting this form does not mean you will be considered for aid. Please be sure to initiate consortium agreements with your home school or apply directly to lenders for a private loan and allow 3-4 weeks for processing.
