Please review the financial assistance options described below. Priority deadlines should be observed to ensure that you have enough time to receive a response and can plan accordingly. If you miss the priority deadline you should submit this form immediately, but remember that funds become increasingly limited and subject to availability.
Application processing begins in late March. Please allow up to three weeks for review.
Applications will be accepted after the deadline but visiting students must pay their Summer Session tuition and fee immediately and if awarded a scholarship or other financial aid a refund will be issued to the student.
Students will be awarded their financial aid online via NYU Albert. An email with the appropriate link will be sent to your NYU email account once your financial aid award package is available (awarding for summer begins in late March). Information about how to secure your aid will be provided in your financial aid award package. All communication regarding your summer financial aid will be available to you via "self service" on NYU Albert.
1. FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID (CONSORTIUM AGREEMENT).
If you currently receive federal financial aid at your home school, you may be able to apply a portion of it to your attendance at NYU. Please consult with your financial aid office to determine if you can complete a Consortium Agreement for New York University. (Federal regulations permit only one institution, the "home institution," to award federal financial aid.) Submit the consortium agreement to:
Office of Financial Aid
New York University
25 West 4th Street
New York, NY 10012-1119
Or scan and send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your NYU ID number on all scanned pages.
Or submit by fax to 212-995-4661. Please include your NYU ID number on all faxed pages.
Keep a copy of it for your records. Please note that not all schools participate in consortium agreements, so please inquire early and plan accordingly.
Please allow up to 3 weeks processing time. Include a fax number on your consortium agreement so NYU can fax the completed form back to your home school.
If your school does not participate in consortium agreements or if you are not currently enrolled at another institution, then you are not eligible for federal student aid for summer at NYU. You may consider instead a non-federal (private) alternative loan (see item 4 below) to pay the full cost of your attendance at NYU.
2. INSTITUTIONAL SCHOLARSHIP OR GRANT FROM YOUR HOME SCHOOL.
If you are receiving institutional scholarship or grant funds from your home school while you are in attendance at NYU, please indicate the total amount you will receive for the entire summer (sessions I and II).
3. ASSISTANCE FROM OTHER SOURCES.
If you will receive any other outside financial assistance for your summer attendance at NYU including outside scholarship, the total amount of aid you are receiving may not exceed your cost of attendance. Please notify the Office of Financial Aid of any outside summer scholarship you are expecting.
4. PRIVATE (NON-FEDERAL) ALTERNATIVE LOAN.
This may be an option for you if you are not eligible for federal aid or if your school does not participate in consortium agreements. NYU does not endorse, recommend or prefer any particular private loan over another. Note that loan terms and eligibility requirements can vary. Click here for information about lenders that NYU students have used in the past. Students may apply for a private loan via the lender's website, and credit approval is usually necessary. Allow up to 3 weeks for processing.
Please submit this summer aid application before you apply for a private loan. Be certain to notify private lenders that you are a visiting student at NYU and will not earn an NYU degree. Some loans are not available to non-degree students.
If you apply for a private loan be sure to list NYU as your school and your loan period/period of enrollment as May 23, 2016 to August 14, 2016.
PLEASE NOTE: Private alternative loans for summer are set to disburse in 2 separate payments during the summer. A refund cannot be issued until sufficient funding has been received to cover all charges. For most students, this will not occur until after the second scheduled disbursement arrives in July. Please plan accordingly. In addition, you must be enrolled at least half-time at the time of disbursement or your funds will be returned to the lender.
Please note that you must be registered for no less than the number of credits you indicate on this summer aid application in order for your financial aid to be disbursed. Review your number of intended credits carefully. If you need to revise the number of intended credits for summer session I or II, you will have the opportunity to do so after you've initially been awarded but before your summer financial aid is disbursed. An email will be sent to your NYU email account once you've been awarded with instructions on how to access your award and how to update your intended points, if necessary.
Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits or more) to be eligible for federal loans from your home school. For those who pursue private loans, terms may vary. Students should be aware of eligibility and disbursement criteria of the private loan they select.
