Here are the most important things you need to know about financial aid at NYU:
The following are the critical forms you must complete to be eligible for all of NYU's need-based and merit-based scholarships.
1) The College Scholarship Service/Financial Aid PROFILE
The CSS PROFILE is required of all applicants, regardless of citizenship, who would like to be considered for any NYU financial aid, including any and all NYU scholarships and grants. Note that scholarships/grants for international students applying to our New York campus will be limited. Also note that students with divorced, separated, or unmarried parents will need to submit the CSS Non-Custodial Parent PROFILE (or the CSS Non-Custodial Parent PROFILE waiver request) by the deadlines below to qualify for scholarships/grants. Transfer applicants and Chinese nationals applying to NYU Shanghai (using the Gaokao to qualify for admission) should not complete the CSS PROFILE.
Early Decision I:
|November 15 (to receive a financial aid estimate in mid-December)|
|Early Decision II:||January 15th (to receive a financial aid estimate in mid-February)|
|Regular Decision:||February 15th (to receive a financial aid award in April)|
2) The Free Application for Federal Student Aid
The FAFSA is also required of all financial aid applicants to our New York and Shanghai campuses who are U.S. Citizens and/or Permanent Residents. NYU Abu Dhabi applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents should only submit the FAFSA if they are also interested in being considered for our New York or Shanghai campuses.
Our FAFSA deadlines are:
|All Freshman Applicants:||February 15 (to receive a final financial aid award in April)|
|Transfer Applicants seeking Fall/Summer Admission:||April 1 (to receive a final financial aid award in May/June)|
|Transfer Applicants seeking Spring Admission:||November 1|
If you submit the FAFSA after the deadlines above, you may be eligible to receive federal financial aid. New York State residents must also submit an application for the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) to be eligible for a TAP grant. For more information, click here. Undocumented students in New York may also be eligible for NYU financial aid. For more information, click here.
