Information about Scholarships and Grants:
- If you received a scholarship or grant, we assume that you will want these awards and have accepted them on your behalf.
- Please review the criteria for renewing your scholarship. NYU scholarships review at the same amount each year as long as the renewal criteria is met.
- In order to maintain your scholarship you must adhere to future award deadlines and meet satisfactory academic progress standards.
Information about Federal Aid:
- It is too early to accept federal loans. Any loans you see in your package will be activated in mid-May. At that time you will be able to accept any portion of the loans you wish to borrow. Parent PLUS Loans are contingent on credit approval.
- We encourage you to become knowledgeable about responsibilities associated with any federal loans you pursue. This includes interest rates, repayment expectations and information about other options that may assist you in financing your education, such as payment plans.
- If you are a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen and have not been awarded federal financial aid, you will be reviewed for federal aid upon successful submission of the FAFSA using NYU’s school code (002785). Use of the FAFSA IRS Data Retrieval Tool is preferred whenever possible.
- If you believe that you have already filed the FAFSA and have not been awarded federal financial aid, please log in to the FAFSA and be sure that you included NYU’s school code (002785) and that all signatures on the FAFSA are complete. Also, if the social security number that you entered on the FAFSA does not match the social security number entered on the Common Application, you will need to reach out to the Office of Financial Aid to update your account.
Information about Tuition, Fees, Room and Board Costs:
The 2017-2018 cost of attendance is available by logging in to the NYUAlbert Accept/Decline Financial Aid page using the instructions above and clicking the link “Estimated Cost of Attendance”.
