Financial Aid and Scholarships
The Value of an NYU Education
Ninety-six percent of recent NYU graduates are either working or going to graduate school. Their mean average salary is $64,734. That says a lot about the return on the investment of an NYU education.
But facts and figures don’t tell the whole story. NYU students graduate with the experience of living and learning in vibrant, complex cities around the world.
They don’t just attend lectures by luminaries in their fields. They create, perform, and conduct research alongside them.
They forge friendships with peers who seem completely different, but in fact share passions like exploring every detail of an artist, inventor, song, meal, town, or topic.
To pay for their education, most students and families combine funding types such as scholarships, grants, loans, and savings. NYU’s Office of Financial Aid can help you coordinate these various options.
We encourage you — no matter your financial situation — to apply for financial aid as soon as possible. Meeting our deadlines will help you maximize your financial aid options.
The Reality of Funding a Degree
Regardless of your or your family's financial circumstances, paying for an education will require a substantial commitment for at least the next few years. There’s not only tuition to consider, but housing and living expenses, as well.
And if loans become part of your funding plan, your responsibilities will go beyond the time you or your family member is attending school.
As you explore your financial aid options, we’re here to help.
