Late FAFSA Filer Request for Reconsideration



The NYU priority deadline for completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is May 1 each year for returning undergraduate students.

The prompt receipt of a student's FAFSA data enables NYU to properly allocate limited resources and offer the best financial aid package possible. A large volume of late FAFSA applications can affect the aid eligibility of all FAFSA filers. Failing to file on time can place your need-based institutional aid eligibility in jeopardy, which means that you may not receive financial aid from any NYU institutional scholarship funds or from any federally funded NYU campus-based aid programs, such as Federal Work-Study and the Federal Perkins Loan. However, until July 31 you may submit the request form below to be considered for your full financial aid eligibility at NYU.

You must first complete your FAFSA immediately at before submitting this request form. Enter the NYU federal school code 002785 on the FAFSA to transmit the information to NYU.

Please follow the instructions shown at right.

Please provide in the box below a detailed reason why your FAFSA was submitted later than the NYU deadline:


YOUR CERTIFICATION: I am requesting a reconsideration of my eligibility for NYU institutional aid and federally funded NYU campus-based aid, based on my 2015-2016 FAFSA data. I acknowledge that I have submitted my FAFSA later than the specified NYU deadline, and that in the future I will apply on time to be considered for all available types of financial aid. This opportunity is being offered to me only once. If I do not file the FAFSA on time in the future, this type of financial aid will not be available to me.




Please submit this request for reconsideration only if you are a continuing undergraduate student filing your FAFSA later than May 1 and wish to be evaluated for NYU institutional scholarship renewal and federally funded NYU campus-based student aid.


The deadline to submit this form is JULY 31, 2015.

IMPORTANT: You MUST first complete the FAFSA before you submit this request form. If you submit this form and have not filed the FAFSA, you will not be reviewed. The NYU Office of Financial Aid recognizes that there are a few exceptional cases where the FAFSA cannot be completed as required. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for additional guidance if you are not able to complete the FAFSA.

Please complete this form carefully. Be sure to review and confirm the information you submit to us. If you provide incorrect information, your request cannot be reviewed or granted. Once this information is received it will be reviewed and your eligibility for financial aid will be reconsidered. Please allow up to 3 weeks for our staff to determine your status; the Office of Financial Aid processes a very large volume of applications and priority must be given to students who meet the specified NYU deadlines.


Upon submission of this request for reconsideration your record will be reviewed and any adjustments made to your financial aid award package will be displayed on your NYU Albert account within 3 weeks.
