International Students must demonstrate financial proof that they have sufficient funds readily available to cover tuition and fees, living expenses, and health insurance for at least one academic year of study to get an immigration document from NYU (or, if your program is less than a year, the full cost of your program). The tables below show the amounts that each student needs to meet for each program.

IMPORTANT: The total estimated expense plus any additional dependent expenses is what you must document for NYU to issue you an I-20 or DS-2019. Anticipate that all costs related to study at NYU will increase approximately 5% for the next academic year and every subsequent year. Depending on when you apply for your I-20/DS-2019, this increase may or may not be reflected on the I-20 or DS-2019 you receive. 

For the most updated and exact information on tuition and fees, visit the NYU Bursar's Office Website.

About the Estimated Expenses

The tables above indicate full-time tuition of 24 credits (one academic year) plus service fees unless otherwise indicated, estimated living expenses, and health insurance. Please note that some programs have different credit standards for full-time enrollment.
