Undocumented Student Financial Aid Application

In addition to the CSS Profile, Undocumented Students* must submit this form to be considered for NYU scholarship funds. NOTE: This form is only for undocumented freshman and transfer applicants, not for international applicants or returning students. (Be sure to read our introductory information.)

* An undocumented student is a student who does not possess appropriate documentation allowing him/her to reside legally in the United States. Students who have been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status are considered to be undocumented.

Applicants will be considered for NYU scholarship based upon financial need, academic strengths (and other information reviewed in the admission process), and must also satisfy the criteria specified below.

Information required for consideration:

  1. Confirmation of the student applicant's attendance at a high school within the United States for the prior three (3) calendar years.
  2. Example of Documentation: official high school transcript.

  3. The student applicant must have a valid Social Security Number, OR the student applicant or student applicant's parent(s) must have an official, valid U.S. Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Please see the IRS website for more information about the ITIN.
  4. Please send all requested documentation to the NYU Office of Financial Aid (see Deadlines at right). Be sure that the applicant's name and University ID are on all pages (your N# can be found in your Application Acknowledgement Email which is sent by NYU following the submission of your Common Application). EMAIL: FAX: 212-995-4661 MAIL: Office of Financial Aid, New York University, 383 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10003.

    IMPORTANT: Undocumented students are subject to income/financial aid form verification, the same as all other students. Students/parents must be prepared to submit tax return transcripts, or -- if U.S. tax returns are not required, based upon Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines -- be able to provide other valid proof of earnings (such as W-2's). Please see our Verification page for more information. If selected for financial aid verification, financial aid eligibility may be subject to change based on the comparison of the requested documentation and the student's CSS Profile.
