Financial Aid Information

If you have questions about your financial aid award, you should contact the NYU Shanghai Office of Financial Support directly at +1 212-998-2838 or by email at

You may disregard the following information if you did not apply for financial aid.

Please note that the information below varies slightly for US citizens and non-US citizens (or permanent residents).

You may view your award in NYUAlbert. From the NYUAlbert page, click the Academics tab, then Applicant Login, select Financial Aid, followed by Accept/Decline Financial Aid.  You may then view your financial aid award. 

Students who have applied for need-based aid by filling the requisite financial aid applications will have access to view their financial aid award. You should have filed a CSS Profile and Profile/Waiver for your noncustodial parent, if applicable. US citizens or eligible non-citizens, must also file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the relevant deadlines for federal aid. 

For students who have been awarded US federal financial aid - it is important that you have a thorough understanding of your awards. Helpful information relating to your award can be found online at "Federal Direct Loans."

To renew your financial aid annually, you must file the required financial aid application by our recommended deadlines, maintain full-time enrollment status, and meet satisfactory academic progress standards.  More detailed information about the filing requirements as a returning student and satisfactory academic progress can be found online at

If you expect to receive financial support from a source outside of your family, please notify the Office of Financial Support immediately at  Such support may be in the form of government grants, scholarships from community organizations, or other sources.  Any such financial support from an external source will be considered in determining the amount of financial aid you ultimately receive from NYU Shanghai.

All financial aid awards on NYU Albert are displayed in US Dollar. For non-US citizens, once you are issued a bill through the NYU Office of the Bursar's eSuite portal, your financial support package will be converted into Chinese Yuan Renminbi (CNY).
