Finances can be a touchy subject. Whether you're applying for financial aid or not, it's important to be informed about the different financial considerations you and your family will have to be aware of as you pursue your education. At NYU, the Financial Education team has resources to help prepare you for college.

"Understanding the Cost of Financing College" is a short, interactive course available on NYU iGrad, our online financial education platform. It explains some complex terminology that can help you manage your financial needs, create a monthly budget, and answer questions about how to make an NYU education possible.
