Financial Aid Contact at NYU Tisch

At Tisch School of the Arts, financial aid is awarded on the basis of need and merit. In order to be considered for financial aid, students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is available online at For priority consideration, returning students must file by March 1 of the academic year preceding the academic year for which they are applying. For example, students who wish to apply for financial aid for the 2024-2025 academic year must file by March 1, 2024.

For entering students, the Financial Aid Office of the University posts a yearly deadline; it is a crucial one. Information through this office can be accessed online at Entering students must file the College Scholarship Service (CSS) profile in addition to the FAFSA.

The Tisch School of the Arts offers several kinds of aid: federal funds (including grants, loans, and work-study), TSOA scholarship awards, and awards from private donors. Once students file the FAFSA and CSS profiles, they are considered for all awards.

Note: There are a limited number of production grants available to students in Graduate and Undergraduate Film and Television. Students should consult directly with their departments about these - some involve a separate application and submission of materials.
