Study Abroad Students

NYU Students

(matriculated at NYU New York, NYU Abu Dhabi, or NYU Shanghai)

Tuition and registration fees for full-time NYU students remains the same during semesters spent at a global location as long as the student is enrolled in 12-18 points. For each point taken in excess of 18 points in a semester, there is an additional charge per point.

Chinese students from NYU Shanghai should speak with their advisors or NYU Shanghai Global Affairs about how additional credits will impact them financially.

Non-NYU (Visiting) Students

Unless your home school has a third-party payment arrangement or other partnership with NYU, visiting students pay NYU College of Arts and Science tuition and fees while studying at an NYU global location. Students are required to enroll in a minimum of 12 points. For each point taken in excess of 18 points in a semester, there is an additional charge. To view current NYU tuition and registration fees, please visit the NYU Bursar website.

If your home school has a third-party payment arrangement with NYU, you will continue to pay tuition to your school, as usual. You will not be required to remit NYU tuition the NYU Bursar. Inquire with your study abroad office to learn if there is a third-party payment arrangement with NYU.

If your home school has a partnership with NYU Global Programs the cost of tuition may be less than the posted figures. Inquire with your study abroad office to learn if there is a partnership with NYU.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

All undergraduate students who will receive a degree from NYU in New York and have been admitted for a semester at an NYU Global Academic Center, are automatically reviewed for the Global Pathways Scholarship and Global Programs Administered Awards.

Additional specialized awards are available for students depending on academic area of interest and / or program selection. Application requirements and deadlines vary.

The University's Electronic Billing (E-Bill) system is the official means of generating tuition bills to enrolled study away students. Paper bills are not mailed. Students, and the additional users they authorize, are notified by e-mail each time a new billing statement becomes available. The Electronic bill is a monthly billing statement, and you will only receive an Electronic bill if you have a balance on your account.

Enrolled students can view their Electronic Bill by logging onto the NYU Electronic bill site. At that time, students can also invite parents or other users to create their own E-bill profile.

For details about NYU's E-bill, tuition rates, and methods of payment, please visit the NYU Bursar website.
