We have two programs for qualified NYU undergraduates:
Both programs provide academic and financial support as well as personal counseling.
There is no separate application for NYU’s Opportunity Programs. To apply for undergraduate admission to NYU and for consideration for the Opportunity Programs, complete the steps as outlined on the Office of Undergraduate Admissions website. Here is a general overview of that process:
You must apply for the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). We advise that you apply online. Click here to begin and submit the FAFSA and TAP applications. Alternatively, you may mail the completed form, which may be obtained through your high school or by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID. Make sure NYU’s School code (002785) appears on the application and be sure to confirm that your Social Security number is written correctly.
Our FAFSA deadline is: February 15th
You must also submit the CSS/Financial Aid Profile. When filling out the CSS/Financial Aid Profile, students with divorced, separated, or unmarried parents will need to have that parent submit a Noncustodial Parent (NCP) form detailing his or her information. If you don’t have contact with that parent then you must fill out an NCP waiver request through the NYU Financial Aid Office. Click here to begin and submit the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE.
CSS/FINANCIAL AID PROFILE deadlines:
Early Decision I: November 15th
Early Decision II: January 15th
Regular Decision: February 15th
NONCUSTODIAL PROFILE or NCP WAIVER REQUEST deadlines:
Early Decision I: November 20th
Early Decision II: January 20th
Regular Decision: February 20th
8. Potentially qualified applicants are invited for an Opportunity Programs information session and eligibility interview, and will be asked at that time to submit all supplemental materials (income verification and copies of financial aid forms filed, e.g. FAFSA, TAP).
Once you’re enrolled, we’re here to help you make the most of your NYU experience:
As an incoming freshman, you will be required to participate in a six-week pre-freshman program designed to preview the courses that you will be enrolled in the fall. While using the freshman year books during the six weeks you will preview 1/3 of the fall semester courses. (more »»)
Throughout your undergraduate years at NYU, we offer both non-credit workshops to reinforce your coursework and free tutoring for an array of subjects and course levels. (more »»)
Our counseling services are designed to help you transition to college, succeed academically, and finally, graduate. To that end, we offer individualized academic, career, financial, and personal counseling. We are here to help you adjust to the demands of college life both in and outside the classroom. (more »»)
If you live outside the five boroughs, you may apply for student housing. Students who live outside the five boroughs are automatically qualified for housing. Students who live within the five boroughs must submit an appeal letter for housing.
As an enrolled student in our program, you will receive a financial aid package, which includes funding from Arthur O. Eve HEOP. Be sure to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) applications as early as possible.
