Spring 2016

First Name:  
Last Name:  
    Enter in the box above your University I.D. as it appears on the back of your NYU student identification card (it begins with the letter N). Please enter the information carefully. If the information is entered incorrectly, your appeal will not be considered.
Net ID:  
    Enter in the box above your Net I.D. as it appears on the back of your NYU student identification card. Do not enter your University I.D. (the "N" number). Do not enter your NYU PIN. Please enter the information carefully. If the information is entered incorrectly, your appeal will not be considered.

Please mark the check box at left if your family has experienced a loss of income after you submitted the 2015-2016 FAFSA. If you check this box you may be eligible for an increase in federal financial aid. Please review our Professional Judgment Worksheet (pdf) to determine if you may be eligible. If so, you are urged to complete the form and submit it promptly with accompanying documents to the Office of Financial Aid.
    Please provide in the box below any details which you consider to be useful to us in determining your eligibility for additional scholarship funds in the 2015-2016 academic year. Only students with significant changes in their financial circumstances between the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 academic years will be considered for limited appeal funds. Please describe these changes in the box below and include how you plan to address these financial challenges.



The deadline to submit this appeal form is Friday, December 4 at 5:00 p.m.

Please submit this appeal form only if you are a returning undergraduate student and wish to request additional scholarship funds due to a significant change in your financial circumstances. All other students should not use this form, and should use instead send an email to for other financial aid inquiries.

You must complete the 2015-2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before you submit this appeal form. Students who met the NYU priority FAFSA deadline of May 1, 2015 will receive preference.

IMPORTANT NOTE For International Students: If you are an international returning undergraduate seeking appeal funds and have not completed the 2015-2016 CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE application you must do so before submitting this appeal form to be considered for funding. Appeals are typically awarded based on a student's financial situation (which you may describe on this form), financial need (which the PROFILE will determine), as well as your academic success. International students are ineligible to complete the FAFSA (a U.S. federal form), but must complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE application for appeal consideration.


The Financial Aid Appeal Committee will evaluate your request and a notice of their decision will be posted to your account on NYU Albert no later than December 23. Appeal funds received for 2015-2016 are not renewable for the 2016-2017 academic year.

All decisions are final, and students will not be considered more than once. Resources are limited, and submitting this appeal does not guarantee additional scholarship funding.

Additional NYU scholarship amounts you receive as a result of this appeal may decrease your eligibility for federal financial aid. In accordance with federal student aid regulations, the Office of Financial Aid may be required to reduce your federal loans and/or federal work-study earnings.

If you do not receive a decision notice, or if your appeal is denied, you remain responsible for making sufficient payment for the spring semester. If your appeal is approved after you have paid your outstanding balance in full, a refund will be credited to your account via the Office of the Bursar. Students may also want to consider Bursar Payment Plan options and outside sources of scholarship to assist with the planning and funding of finances for the upcoming year.
