Tuition and Fees
Attending graduate school is an investment in your future and a serious commitment of time and money. NYU Steinhardt is committed to assisting graduate applicants in the process of financing their education.

Financial Fact Sheet
The Financial Fact Sheet provides detailed information related to student costs as required by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE)
Entry-level DPT applicants are automatically considered for school-based scholarships which are approximately $25,000 per year for three years ($75,000 total), on average. These tuition scholarships provide significant support towards the cost of your DPT degree.
Salant Physical Therapy Scholarship Fund
The Department, through the generosity of friends and alumni, has established a scholarship fund to assist a limited number of students during their course of study.
Incoming students may be selected to receive a Salant Scholars Award that is given each year for the three years. Students are selected at the time of acceptance into the DPT program. Scholarship amounts vary.
Supplemental scholarship aid is also available through the Salant Physical Therapy Scholarship Fund for second and third-year students based on documented financial need and successful academic performance. To apply for the supplemental scholarship, you must demonstrate financial need, be in good academic standing, and complete an application form that includes a financial aid profile. Notification of action will be rendered by the faculty. Students should consult with the Scholarship and Awards Committee Chairperson, Kevin Weaver, regarding the above information.
Federal Financial Aid Application Procedures
- To be eligible for the scholarships listed above, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. The University's institution code is 002785.
- Deadline: Submit the FAFSA by March 1 for Summer enrollment. Do not wait to be accepted for admission. Applying after the deadline will delay the processing of federal aid and student loans. NYU's Office of Financial Aid will begin mailing official award letters in late March.
