NYU offers a range of resources to help you explore your funding options, from one-on-one counseling to how-to guides from expert sources. Be sure to review deadlines and prepare your materials ahead of time!
Speak to a Counselor
You can reach out to a trained NYU counselor in person, on the phone, or by email to discuss your options for funding your undergraduate education.
Scholarships and Grants
Your aid package may include a variety of scholarships and grants, which is a type of aid that does not need to be repaid, both from NYU and from federal and state programs. NYU is committed to using the vast majority of our scholarship funds to assist students whose families are unable to pay the full cost of an NYU education, and we take into account both financial need and academic merit.
If you are eligible for the Federal Work-Study Program, your aid package may include student employment. Your earnings through this program will go directly to you, not the University.
You may find that federal loans, private loans, or a combination of both are an important part of making your education goal realistic. NYU has resources to help you understand your loan options, and what the repayment process will look like for you.
