Tuition and Fees
Tuition and Fees
If you are registered for classes, you are responsible for all costs (tuition and fees) associated with your courses. Please be aware that if you have decided not to participate in the Precollege program, you must drop your classes via NYU Albert and notify the Office of University Programs in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the start of the program so that you are no longer responsible for the costs.
In general, the tuition for NYU Precollege can be calculated by multiplying the cost per credit by the number of credits you would like to take. Below you will find a chart that provides some sample breakdowns of tuition and fees.
Precollege Tuition and Fees Breakdown
Totals do not include course-specific fees, such as lab or equipment fees, if applicable.
Students are able to take anywhere between 0 to 8 credits (1-3 classes) and should refer to the public course listings to determine the number of credits awarded for each course. The public course listing for Summer 2021 will be available on March 22.
The Summer Writing Workshop is the only non-credit Precollege course being offered in Summer 2021. The cost of the Summer Writing Workshop is $450.00. Please note that financial aid is not offered for non-credit classes.
*Scholarships are available only for the Summer term. Scholarships for the Spring 2021 are not available.
A limited number of scholarships are available for Summer Precollege to academically qualified students who demonstrate a high level of financial need. Please note that scholarships will not cover the full cost of the program for any recipients.
Students who are interested in financial aid should submit their Summer Precollege application by March 25 to ensure they can submit the scholarship application by the scholarship deadline, which is April 1st.
Students interested in applying for an NYU Precollege scholarship should complete the following steps:
- When filling out the online Precollege application, select "Yes" in response to the question "Are you interested in applying for a scholarship?".
- Within 48 hours of submitting the online application, students will receive an email with instructions for submitting the scholarship application.
- Students will be directed to activate their NYU credentials (which will be included in the email) in order to access the scholarship application.
- Complete and submit the scholarship application. There are no supplemental materials that need to be submitted, as students will self-report family household financial information directly from the 1040.
Scholarship information will be reviewed by the NYU Office of Financial Aid and decisions will be emailed directly to student's NYU email accounts beginning in late March. Students will not receive decisions about scholarships until AFTER they receive their admissions decision.
Please refer to the list below for answers to our frequently asked questions about applying for a Precollege scholarship.
What do I need in order to complete the scholarship application?
You will need your N# and your parents/guardians will need to provide some of their previous year’s tax information from their tax returns. Please note that this will be self reported information. You will not need to supply a copy of this information.
How is my scholarship award determined?
Scholarship awards are determined by the NYU Office of Financial Aid. There are a limited number of available scholarships for Precollege students.
All awards are based on financial need. In calculating your scholarship award, the Office of Financial Aid will review the student’s application, which includes reported family income as well as the total number of credits that you intend to take while in the program. If you later add or drop a course and your total credits change, your scholarship amount may be adjusted up or down accordingly.
All scholarships are partial; there are no scholarships that cover the full cost of a student’s attendance.
The scholarship application asks what courses and credits I will take, but I haven’t registered for classes yet. What should I write on the application?
Each course is worth a set number of college credits (or units). Most courses are 3 or 4 credits each, and students may review the public course search to find courses of interest and see how many credits those courses are worth.
Students are not held to the courses and credits they list on their scholarship application, and it is fine for a student’s final registration to not exactly match what is listed on their application. However, a student’s final scholarship amount may be adjusted depending on their final course registration and credit total. (See “my award has changed from what I was initially awarded” below.)
My financial situation has changed. Can my scholarship amount be reconsidered?
If a student’s current family income changes or differs greatly from what is reflected in the scholarship application, students may inform the NYU Office of Financial Aid of this change by contacting 212-998-4444 or email@example.com.
My award has changed from what I was initially awarded. What happened?
It is common for a student’s award amount to change, because their course registration has changed. Scholarship amounts are based on the number of course credits a student lists on their scholarship application. If a student’s final course registration totals more or less credits than originally calculated, the student’s award amount is adjusted up or down accordingly.
Students with questions about changes to their award amount may contact the NYU Office of Financial Aid at 212-998-4444 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
When is the scholarship application due?
The scholarship application must be submitted by April 1, 2021 in order to be considered for a scholarship award.
I missed the application deadline. Can I still apply?
Unfortunately, no. We are unable to accept scholarship applications after the deadline.
I still have questions about my award. Who should I contact?
Please reach out to the NYU Office of Financial Aid at 212-998-4444 or email@example.com if you have any questions about the scholarship application.
