Financial Aid Information

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 NYU Albert. From the main page of NYUHome, click the Academics tab, then click on Applicant Login, followed by Accept/Decline Financial Aid.  You may then view your financial aid award. 

You will have access to your financial aid award, provided that you filed a CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE and Noncustodial PROFILE/Waiver if applicable (the Profile(s) are required of all students wishing to be considered for scholarship and NYU grant aid)  and, if you are a US citizen or eligible non-citizen, you must also file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the relevant deadlines.

For students who have been awarded US federal financial aid - it is important that you have a thorough understanding of your award. 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 published 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 http://shanghai.nyu.edu/admissions/returning.

If you expect to receive financial support from a source outside of your family, please immediately notify the Office of Financial Support at shanghai.financial.support@nyu.edu of that assistance.  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 support you ultimately receive from NYU Shanghai.

If you are a non-US citizen or US permanent resident, your NYU Shanghai award on NYU Albert's Accept/Decline Financial Aid page is displayed in US Dollar.  Once you register for your fall classes and are issued a bill through the NYU Office of the Bursar, your award amount will be converted into Chinese Yuan Renminbi (CNY).

You can view your 2017-2018 estimated Cost of Attendance on NYUAlbert.
