Our application fee should not discourage any student from applying to NYU. Students who feel that the application fee would be a financial hardship for their families can simply request a fee waiver on the Common Application. It's as simple as that.
For those who do pay the application fee of $80.00 US dollars, it is a nonrefundable fee that is paid online through the Common Application website and cannot be paid by cash.
If you must submit a check or money order instead, include your name, Common Application and/or NYU University ID number on your check or money order. Please make your check or money order payable to New York University and send to:
New York University
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
383 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10003
Receiving a receipt for the payment of your fee does not mean that your Common Application has been submitted. You must check your submission status on the Common Application website to ensure that both your Common Application and required NYU Supplement have been submitted to be eligible for admission.
