Aid and Costs
Paying for Your Education
At NYU, we don’t want money to stand in the way of your success. That’s why many of our students receive some form of financial assistance to help pay for their education.
As a student at New York University, you will likely tap into one or more types of financial aid that include:
Average Scholarship Amount Awarded to First-Years
First-Years Who Received Pell Grants
Total awarded to 3,000+ students in research scholarships
Average Starting Salary for NYU Graduates with a BS or BA
How Aid is Awarded
No matter your financial situation, you should apply for financial aid. For students who file on time, NYU meets the full demonstrated need of admitted students as determined by your expected family contribution from information that you provide on the CSS Profile. In our calculations of a family's need, we also take into account eligibility for federal and state grants and student employment.
Applying for Aid
When you apply to attend NYU, you should also fill out the FAFSA and CSS Profile by their deadlines to be considered for available financial aid.
Cost of Attendance
College costs money. But, when thinking in terms of investing, one of the best places for a solid return on your money is education. On average, recent NYU graduates with a BS or a BA make about $64,895 per year. That, according to Payscale.com, puts NYU in the top 9% percent of universities that give you the best return on your educational investment.
While tuition and room and board will make up a big portion of your expenses at NYU, you will also have to budget for things like books, supplies and transportation.
