If you are a visiting student spending a semester or year at an NYU Global Academic Center you should be aware of the following funding opportunities:

  • Financial Aid Transfer (Consortiums)
  • External study abroad scholarships and grants
  • Institutional discount (awarded to students from partner institutions with an existing affiliation agreement in place)

Financial Aid Transfer

In many cases, non-NYU students who receive financial aid from their home school are able to apply some or all of their financial aid toward studying abroad through NYU. To initiate the transfer process, visit the financial aid office at your home institution ASAP and ask to have a consortium agreement established with NYU. This allows your school to process federal aid and transfer it to NYU for a semester or year abroad.

The Office of Financial Aid of your home institution should fax the form to our office at (212) 995-4103, email a scanned copy to global.programs@nyu.edu, or mail to the NYU Office of Global Programs at 383 Lafayette Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003. Consortium forms are due to our office by July 1st if applying for the fall and December 1st for spring semester. Late applications will be accepted but may impact processing time.
