Future CCTOP Students

Scholarship Details

At NYU Steinhardt & NYU Silver, CCTOP Scholarships are flexible - award amounts are tied directly to a student's need. 

All eligible students receive a scholarship that is 50% of their financial need.  Financial need is determined by subtracting the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the FAFSA from the esitmated Cost of Attendance (COA) for the academic year.  For example, a commuter student who has a COA of $48,000 (tuition, fees, books, travel, and other miscellaneous expenses) and an EFC of $0, will recieve a $24,000 scholarship.   If a student adds cost of living to that (paying for their own apartment, living in campus housing), the COA would increase, as would the scholarship. 

The CCTOP scholarship works with, not in place of, regular student aid including grants and loans. All school-based aid, such as CCTOP and the PTK award, are renewable annually by staying in good standing and on track academically. 

At NYU School of Professional Studies Paul McGhee Division, CCTOP Scholarships are awarded differently.  Please visit the McGhee website here for clarification.  

Members of Phi Theta Kappa may qualify for the additional $2500 PTK Scholarship offered by Undergraduate Admissions. Students must submit a letter of good standing from their advisor during the application process , and they must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.8.

Students typically qualify for a variety of federal and state programs, including the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Work Study, Stafford Loans, PLUS loans, TAP, HEOP, etc.

NYU is a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program for post- 9/11 veterans, in addition to working with the regular G.I. Bill benefits.

Students must file the FAFSA form every year. For returning students, the deadline is March 1 every year. Students that are new or applying should complete the form and include NYU as a receiving school (code 002785) as early in the process as they can, to ensure that their aid is processed as quickly as possible.
