All students should apply for financial aid every year. Students who miss a financial aid priority deadline are still encouraged to file the FAFSA and will be considered for federal student aid if eligible, but funds become increasingly limited. If you have not applied, do so immediately. Remember, to meet the specified deadline your application, with all necessary signatures, must be received and validated by the processor and released to NYU by the date shown below for priority consideration.
Freshman Applicants: In order to be considered for NYU scholarship, you must complete all required applications by our deadlines. Please review How to Apply to learn which applications are relevant to you. Late CSS Profile applications will not be accepted for scholarship consideration. The FAFSA can be filed at any time to be reviewed for federal aid eligibility.
Important financial aid dates and deadlines are posted one month in advance on the Events Calendar below.
If you are receiving scholarship/fellowship stipend support, you may have stipend payments deposited directly into your checking or savings account. To be eligible for direct deposit, you must have a checking or savings account at a bank that is a member of the Automatic Clearinghouse (most banks are members). Stipend checks will be sent to your local address as it appears on Albert (via NYUHome) until direct deposit becomes effective for you or if you do not elect the direct deposit option. Be sure to maintain your current local address on Albert at all times.
To apply for Direct Deposit of Scholarship/Fellowship Stipends, complete and submit the AP Direct Deposit Authorization Form available from the NYU Controller's Division, Financial Services:
