Financial Aid

Beginning in the 2024-25 academic year, President Linda G. Mills expanded NYU's commitment to affordability through The NYU Promise, guaranteeing that every undergraduate - domestic and international - who started as a first year student admitted to our New York campus will not have to pay tuition if they have family income under $100,000 and hold typical assets.

Students admitted as first year undergraduate students to our New York campus, who apply for financial aid by the financial aid deadlines, and who have a family income under $100,000 and hold typical assets will be eligible to have their tuition covered.  Any students enrolled at NYU in fall 2024 (including sophomores, juniors, and seniors) who meet the criteria will have their NYU Scholarship adjusted for the start of the fall 2024 term.

Other awards are granted purely on the basis of scholastic merit.  However, it is often possible to receive a combination of awards based on both need and merit. Thus, University scholarships or fellowships may be granted by themselves or in conjunction with student loans and/or Federal Work-Study employment. To ensure that maximum sources of available support will be investigated, students must apply for financial aid by the appropriate deadline.

Your decision to apply for financial aid will have no bearing on the admissions decision.
