If you are registered for classes you are responsible for all costs (tuition and fees) associated with your courses. Please be aware that if you have decided not to participate in Summer in NYC, you must drop your classes via NYU Albert and notify the Office of University Programs in writing at so that you are no longer responsible for the costs.

Financial Aid

Students matriculated in NYU degree programs may be eligible to receive federal aid (grants and loans) through NYU.

  • Consortium Agreement: If you are currently enrolled at another college or university, contact your home school's financial aid office to inquire about receiving aid from your school via a consortium agreement with NYU.
  • Private Loans: If you are not currently enrolled at another college or if your school will not authorize a consortium agreement, you may be eligible for private loans.
  • NYU does not offer scholarship or grant funding for visiting students.

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.
