Costs & Budgeting


* Costs listed for 2016-2017 per semester.


Figure includes semester 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. 

** Housing rates are the proposed fall 2016 and spring 2017 semester rates for the Paris study away site. These rates are pending NYU Board of Trustee review in summer 2016. Room rates are site specific and are generally determined by room type, rental costs, and associated support services. The figures cited in NYU's Cost of Attendance are based on annual room and board rates at NYU's location in New York.

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 costs are estimated and may vary depending on student choices.


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.

Financial Aid

Incoming Liberal Studies and Global Liberal Studies Freshmen who will be enrolling at NYU for their first year in Florence, London, Paris, or Shanghai follow the financial aid process described by the NYU Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
