As a student, you’ll likely be responsible for fees and charges beyond tuition. 

Here’s a list of some of the additional fees to be aware of:

  • Deferred Payment Plan-Application Fee: A $50 fee is applied to enrollment in the Deferred Payment Plan.
  • Deferred Payment Plan-Late Payment Fee: A $25 fee is applied to those who are late in submitting payment on their deferred payment plan (per installment).
  • Finance Charge: Unpaid student accounts will be charged a one percent interest fee each month until the balance is paid in full.
  • Housing: Students living in New York University housing have a variety of options to choose from. Undergraduate and graduate students can access academic year rates through the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services.

  • Late Registration Fee: New York University charges a late registration fee to students who initially enroll in courses 9 days after the start of the semester. The fee is charged at the time of registration. Refer to the academic calendar for information regarding the first day of the semester. Undergraduate students: $25.00, Graduate and Law students: $50.00. The fee is not charged in the Summer or January terms.
  • Maintaining Matriculation Fee: Students who are maintaining their academic status, but are not enrolled in classes will be charged a fee per term.

  • NYU Book Store/Computer Store: Students can defer full payment for their computer purchase, spreading it out in equal installments on their student bill.
  • Registration and Services Fee: The registration and services fees furnish resources to fund a portion of the budgets for a variety of services, operations, and activities that serve students and enhance University life in support of our academic program.  These services may include, but are not limited to, the Registrar, Student Health Center, the Wellness Exchange / Counseling Service, the Wasserman Center, Information Technology, and Student Life.
  • Replacement ID Charge: Students must pay a $25.00 fee to replace ID cards with the Department of Campus Safety.
