Deferred Payment Plan

The Deferred Payment Plan allows a student to pay 50 percent of the net balance due for the current term on the payment due date and defer the remaining 50 percent until later in the semester. This plan is available to students who meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Matriculated and registered for 6 or more units
  • Without a previously unsatisfactory University credit record
  • Not in arrears (past due) for any University charge or loan

The plan includes a nonrefundable application fee of $50, which is to be included with the initial payment on the payment due date. Interest at a rate of 1 percent per month on the unpaid balance will be assessed if payment is not made in full by the final installment due date. A late payment fee will be assessed on any late payments.

A separate deferred payment plan application and agreement is required for each term this plan is used. The Deferred Payment Plan will be available at nyu.edu/bursar in July for fall term and in December for the spring term.

A separate deferred payment plan application and agreement is required for each term this plan is used. The Deferred Payment Plan application will be available at www.nyu.edu/bursar/forms in July for the fall term and in December for the spring term.

Tuitionpay Plan

TuitionPay (formerly called AMS) is a payment plan administered by Afford.com (nyu. afford.com/home). The plan is open to all  NYU students with the exception of the School of Professional Studies noncredit division. This interest-free plan allows for all or a portion of a student’s educational expenses (including tuition, fees, room, and board) to be paid in monthly installments. The traditional University billing cycle consists of one large lump-sum payment due at the beginning of each term.

TuitionPay is a budget plan that enables a family to spread payments over the course of the academic year. By enrolling in this plan, you spread your fall term tuition payments over a four-month period (June through September) and your spring term tuition payment over another four-month period (November through February).

With this plan, you budget the cost of your tuition and/or housing, after deducting any financial aid you will be receiving and/or any payments you have made directly to NYU. For additional information, contact TuitionPay at 800-772-4867 or outside of the US or Canada 401-921-3999 or visit the NYU Bursar website nyu.edu/bursar under Payment Plans.

Withdrawal and Refund of Tuition

A student who for any reason finds it impossible to complete a course for which they have registered should consult with an academic adviser and file and request a class withdrawal through the student’s Albert Student Center. (Note: An official withdrawal must be filed if a course has been canceled, and, in this case, the student is entitled to a refund of tuition and fees paid.) Withdrawal does not necessarily entitle the student to a refund of tuition paid or a cancellation of tuition still due. A refund of tuition will be made provided such withdrawal is filed within the scheduled refund period for the term (see schedule below).

Merely ceasing to attend a class does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does notification to the instructor. A stop payment of a check presented for tuition does not constitute withdrawal, nor does it reduce the indebtedness to the University. The nonreturnable registration and services fee and a penalty of $20 for a stopped payment must be charged in addition to any tuition not canceled.

The date on which the class withdrawal request is filed, not the last date of attendance in class, is considered the official date of withdrawal. It is this date that serves as the basis for computing any refund granted the student.

The refund period (see schedule below) is defined as the first four calendar weeks of the term for which application for withdrawal is filed. The processing of refunds takes approximately two weeks.

Graduate Refund Schedule

Withdrawing from one or more class but will remain enrolled in at least one class

Fall and spring terms only

This schedule is based on the total applicable charge for tuition excluding nonreturnable fees and deposits.

  • Courses dropped during the first two weeks of the term: 100 percent tuition and fees refund
  • Courses dropped after the first two weeks of the term: none

Graduate Refund Schedule for Complete Withdrawals

Withdrawing from all classes

Fall and spring terms only

This schedule is based on the total applicable charge for tuition excluding nonreturnable fees and deposits. All dates below are based on the official opening date of the term, not the first meeting of the class. Some programs follow an academic calendar that is different from the NYU Academic Calendar. Students enrolled in these programs should consult the deadlines in their specific calendar.

  • Withdrawal before the second day of the term: 100 percent tuition and fees refund
  • Withdrawal before the end of the first week of the term: 100 percent tuition refund only
  • Withdrawal before the end of the second week of the term: 70 percent tuition refund only
  • Withdrawal before the end of the third week of the term: 55 percent tuition refund only
  • Withdrawal before the end of the fourth week of the term: 25 percent tuition refund only
  • Withdrawal after the end of the fourth week of the term: none

For exact dates for a specific term, please refer to the University Registrar website at nyu.edu/bursar

Notes:

  • After the official opening date of the term, the registration and services fee is not returnable.
  • The first calendar week consists of the first seven days beginning with the official opening date of the term (not the first day of the class meeting).
  • A student may not withdraw from a class after the ninth week of the fall or spring term or the last three days of each summer session.

Refunds resulting from Dropping Courses or Complete Term Withdrawal: If you drop a course or withdraw from the university completely, your tuition and registration fee charges are subject to the University Refund Schedule policy. If you are a financial aid recipient, your refund will not be processed until a calculation is performed to determine the amount of financial aid, if any, you are still eligible to receive.

  • Federal regulations require adjustments reducing financial aid if a student withdraws even after the NYU refund period. Financial aid amounts will be adjusted for students who withdraw through the ninth week of the term and have received any federal grants or loans. This adjustment may result in the student’s bill not being fully paid. NYU will bill the student for this difference. The student will be responsible for payment of this bill before returning to NYU and will remain responsible for payment even if they do not return to NYU.
  • For any term a student receives any aid, that term will be counted in the satisfactory academic progress standard. This may require the student to make up units before receiving any further aid. Please review the “satisfactory academic progress” standard for the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development so you do not jeopardize future terms of aid.
  • Exceptions to the published refund schedules may be appealed in writing by emailing steinhardt-registration-and-advisement-group@nyu.edu or to the Committee on Refunds, 82 Washington Square East, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10003. It should be supported by appropriate documentation regarding the circumstances that warrant consideration of an exception. Exceptions are rarely granted.

The student will be responsible for payment of this bill before returning to NYU and will remain responsible for payment even if they do not return to NYU.

For any semester a student receives any aid, that term will be counted in the satisfactory academic progress standard. This may require the student to make up credits before receiving any further aid.

Tuition Insurance

NYU encourages all students to purchase tuition insurance in case a withdrawal after the refund period becomes necessary. Please contact A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., Four Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02169; 617-774-1555; www.tuitionrefundplan.com, for more information.
