We work diligently to keep program costs as low as possible. Intersession and summer study abroad programs entail the following costs:
- Accept/Decline Deposit: This non-refundable $500 deposit is due within two weeks of your acceptance to a program and is paid online by credit or debit card. This deposit covers a portion of the housing and activity fee.
- Housing and Activity Fee Balance: Due by April 15 for summer abroad and November 15 for January and spring break programs, this fee is paid online using credit card, debit card, or electronic check. You can make your payment directly to the Office of the Bursar via the NYU Home Student Center. The amount of the fee varies by program, so check individual program pages for specifics.
- Tuition and Registration Fees: These fees are paid by electronic check directly to the NYU Bursar according to its billing schedule. Electronic check is the only accepted form of payment for NYU tuition. Steinhardt graduate tuition for 2015-16 is $1,538 per credit, plus registration and service fees. After registering for your study abroad courses, the Bursar will send an e-bill to your NYU email address.
- Round-Trip Flight: You will purchase your flight individually, in accordance with your program's dates. The arrival and departure dates are listed on program pages.
- Incidental Costs: Students budget individually for daily expenses such as meals and personal items. Each program page provides an estimated daily incidental cost, based on the program location.
For questions regarding program payments, or if you cannot pay by credit or debit card, email us or call us at 212-992-9380. Please review our policies for more information.
Current NYU Students: January and Spring Break Study Abroad
- All January and Spring Break programs count toward Spring semester course load and financial aid. Financial aid disbursement for tuition and registration fees will be paid directly to the Bursar’s office in the same way that you would pay for a Spring semester course taken on campus.
- You may request additional aid for the spring term to cover the anticipated costs of their study abroad by emailing the Office of the Bursar calling them at 212-998-2818.
- Scholarships are available in addition to spring financial aid. Visit our Scholarships page for more information.
Current NYU Students: Summer Study Abroad
- Financial aid is available to current NYU students enrolled in at least six credits for the Summer term. Intern Abroad participants are exempt from this minimum and may complete a Full-Time Equivalency Form in coordination with their academic advise if financial aid is needed.
- Graduate students will automatically be considered for financial aid based on summer enrollment; undergraduate students must specifically request aid via the NYU Office of Financial Aid.
- Per federal regulations, the Office of Financial Aid disburses summer aid in July of each year. We are aware that some students will require disbursements of aid prior to that date in order to cover program-related expeneses. Students may request an advance on their financial aid by following these steps:
- Step 1: Apply for financial aid immediately on the Office of Financial Aid's website. You do not need to be registered for a summer course in order to request aid.
- Step 2: Contact the Office of the Bursar to request an early disbursement: email@example.com, 212-998-2818
- Step 3: Email us and let us know that you are expecting an early disbursement. We will then extend your payment deadline. Your final payment MUST be made before your program's departure date, regardless of when you receive your disbursement.
Visiting or non-NYU students, per federal regulations, are not eligible for financial aid through NYU. However, if you are a non-NYU student, you should contact the financial aid office at your home university to find out if you are eligible for financial aid through a consortium agreement. Processing time can be slow for consortium agreements and we encourage you to submit your completed agreement as early as possible.
If consortium agreements are not offered through your home university, you may opt to apply for a private lender loan. Visit the NYU Financial Aid website to learn more.
