Each fall and spring semester, the Center for Student Life provides a childcare subsidy to eligible graduate students to assist with childcare services. On this page you will find information on eligibility and Frequently Asked Questions. We encourage you to review this information before you apply.
NOTE: Those approved for the subsidy should receive the Bursar credit mid-November for the Fall semester or mid- April for the Spring semester. Applicants will be notified by email when it is available on your Bursar account.
It is a financial assistance program provided by the Division of Student Affairs to assist full-time graduate students who have a child under the age of 6 with the cost of childcare. Students can apply for the subsidy in the Fall and Spring Semesters. The maximum amount is $200 per semester for eligible applicants.
$200 per eligible student per semester (fall and spring only). The subsidy is limited to one per student, not per child.
The deadline for Fall is November 1. The deadline for Spring is April 1.

No, NYU does not offer child care service, however there are a variety of resources available on the Students with Children webpage.
Applications are processed at the end of each semester. If you are approved, you will receive a confirmation that a subsidy credit will be awarded to your account. Traditionally, the Fall credit will be awarded in December., and the Spring credit is awarded in May.
If there is a balance on your account (i.e. library fees, next semester's tuition), the $200 will go directly towards that balance. If you have a zero balance, the Bursar's Office will issue a check to your registered address. If you are an international student you will be issued a check through Accounts Payable that will be available for pick up in the Office of Graduate Student Life (located in Building 4 Washington Square Village).
First, you will have received a confirmation email stating that you have been approved for the credit. If the semester has ended and you have not received your credit, please check your Bursar's statement, by logging on to Albert at albert.nyu.edu.
If you do not receive your credit before the end of the semester, email firstname.lastname@example.org before the start of the next semester.
Unfortunately we cannot accept faxed copies. Please attach the birth certificate to your childcare application. If you are unable to do so at the time of your application, please email a copy to email@example.com.
Full-time status is defined differently by each school, academic department or program. You can view your status by using the Enrollment Verification option on Albert.
For questions about your enrollment status, you will need to speak with your academic advisor or an administrator in your academic area of study to find out if you have full time status.

This subsidy is provided by the Division of Student Affairs and is a different subsidy than the one provided as a part of the NYU Graduate Employees Covered Under the NYU/UAW Local 2110 Contract.
Students meeting the Childcare Subsidy eligibility may receive this subsidy in addition to whatever is provided by the Local 2110 Contract (if eligible).
