Selecting a Plan

Everyone’s needs are different when it comes to paying for college.

New York University offers a selection of payment plans to make paying for your education easier. Read more to decide which one is right for you.

Deferred Payment Plans

Deferred Payment Plans allow you to pay half of your tuition up front and pay the rest later in the semester.

Deferred Payment Plans are open to students who:

  • Are enrolled in courses and/or on-campus housing
  • Have maintained good financial standing with the University
  • Do not have any past due University charges or loans

If your initial payment is paid by wire transfer (non USD account), paper check, cash, tuition remission or a 3rd party sponsor credit, you must wait for the payment to post on your account before you can enroll in the plan.

Please note:

  • College of Dentistry: Enrollment for students is open to those in their First Year DDS, Advanced Standing, and Postgraduate Dental students. Dental students in other programs can enroll in the regular Deferred Payment Plan.
  • Leonard N. Stern School of Business: The Deferred Payment Plan is available to students who are not enrolled in the executive or PhD programs.

Fixed Payment Plan

By enrolling in the Fixed Payment Plan, you can pay a fixed price for up to a maximum of eight semesters.

Fixed fees are calculated from the cost of tuition and registration and services in effect at the start of the first semester for which you register. Those amounts are then multiplied by the number of semesters you’d like to pay ahead.

Fixed Payment Plans are open to students who:

  • Are enrolled in full-time undergraduate programs
  • Do not receive any form of financial aid, loans, or scholarships

Please note: The Fixed Payment Plan does not cover summer semesters or part-time study. Explore enrollment.
