New York University believes that students should be able to choose the college that offers them the best range of educational opportunities. In order to make that choice possible, New York University attempts to aid students who are in need of financial assistance.
Financial aid is awarded in an effort to help students meet the difference between their own resources and the cost of education. All awards are subject to availability of funds and the student's demonstrated financial need. Renewal of assistance depends on annual reevaluation of a student's financial need, the availability of funds, the successful completion of academic courses from the previous year, and maintaining satisfactory academic progress toward completion of your degree requirements. In addition, students must meet the published filing deadlines for financial aid.
Some awards are granted purely on the basis of scholastic merit. Others are based on financial need. However, it is frequently possible to receive a combination of awards based on both. Thus, University scholarships or fellowships may be granted by themselves or in conjunction with student loans and/or Federal Work-Study employment. To ensure that maximum sources of available support will be investigated, students must apply for financial aid by the appropriate deadline.
If you believe you will need financial assistance to enable you to attend NYU, we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid and scholarship programs. Your decision to apply for financial aid will have no bearing on the admissions decision.
