Transfer Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid involves two key steps: finding out when you need to apply by and determining which applications you need to submit.

It’s critical that you apply for aid on time. The amount of aid you receive in your first year is typically the amount you’ll continue to receive each year, as long as you remain eligible. Filing late — or not at all — can impact if and how much aid you receive in future years. Transfer students eligible for NYU scholarships are listed below.

Step 1: Know Your Deadline

Financial aid application deadlines for Transfer/Second Bachelor’s applicants are:

  • Fall/Summer Applicants: April 15 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
  • Spring Applicants: November 15 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time

Step 2: Complete and Submit Financial Aid Applications

You may need to submit two financial aid applications, depending on where you live and to which campus you are applying.
