Applying for the FAFSA

In order to apply for financial aid from NYU, you must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is a great way to become eligible for many forms of federal aid and scholarships, so we encourage you to submit the FAFSA no matter what your plan to fund your education. See our tips on completing the FAFSA application.
