As an international student at NYU, there are a few fees you'll be charged specific to your legal status. Learn what they are and how you pay them.
If you are an F-1 or J-1 student, you will have to pay the SEVIS fee to the US government. Currently, the SEVIS fee is $350 for F-1 students and $220 for J-1 students. When you pay the fee, be sure to print payment confirmation and keep it with your other immigration documents.
You are responsible for paying this fee once you get a new I-20 or DS-2019 from us and at least 3 business days before you apply for your F-1 or J-1 visa. If you're Canadian, you'll have to pay the fee at least three business days prior to entering the US as an F-1 or J-1 student.
You won't have to pay the fee
If you are an international student at NYU, you will have to pay $90 for each semester or term you register for class. An international student at NYU is anyone who is not a US citizen or Permanent Resident. This fee is part of the cost of attending NYU.
You are automatically charged for it each term you register. You will see it on your NYU bill and can pay it when you are paying your fees for the semester.
If you change your status and become a US citizen or Permanent Resident, then contact us. We will need to see proof of your new status in the U.S. You will then no longer be responsible for paying the fee.
For any questions about this fee, please contact Thomas Sirinides, Director of International Student Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
