Costs & Budgeting



Figure includes tuition for full-time students taking 12 - 18 points, deposit and required registration fees, and several program activities and excursions.  For each point taken in excess of 18 points in a semester, there is an additional charge per point. * Figure is for 2016 - 2017 academic year, per semester.

Global Travel Assistance

Provided at no additional cost to the student, this service provides assistance through one of the world's largest providers of medical and security evacuation as well as general travel aid (e.g., lost document assistance).  This company provides 24-hour global services with the help of out site staff to our students abroad.


Students planning to travel extensively outside the program parameters on weekends and holidays should budget accordingly.  With the exception of tuition, all casts are estimated and may vary depending on student's budget.


NYU's electronic billing system is the official means of generating tuition bills for all enrolled students.  Within a few weeks of registering for classes, students will receive a message at their official NYU email address notifying them that a bill for tuition, fees, and housing is available.

Please visit the NYU Bursar website for details about the E-bill process.
