The preliminary cost of attendance budget represents the estimated annual cost of education for full-time undergraduate students at NYU Shanghai in US dollars for the academic year. It includes tuition, room and board (which may vary based on a student’s room selection), health insurance, personal expenses, books, and many student life activities. The budget is estimated for the academic year only. Annual adjustments to the costs and fees at NYU Shanghai may be necessary and expected. The yearly tuition and residence costs include only full-time fall and spring enrollment; course overloads incur additional tuition and book fees. Students that take summer session and/or January term courses will incur additional direct and indirect expenses.
Direct Costs – Costs that you will be charged by the University such as tuition, registration, and services fees, health insurance, room and books for each semester. Your financial aid (scholarship and/or grant) will apply to those charges first. If your semester’s financial aid is more than your direct costs then that would generate a refund. If you are eligible to receive a refund, you could use that refund to help cover indirect expenses that you may incur during the semester (see below for indirect cost information).
Students will be sent electronic bills (e-Bills) each semester of enrollment. The Office of the Bursar sends notifications approximately 30 days prior to the semester due date. Fall e-Bills are generally available in mid-July and spring e-Bills are generally available in early December. Students will be required to submit payment prior to a semester start date. Fall payment is generally due in early August, and spring payment is generally due in early January. For more information about your e-Bill or refund, please review the information at http://shanghai.nyu.edu/academics/tuition.
Indirect Costs – Educational costs such as estimated travel, supplies, and personal expenses that you may incur during the academic year. These indirect costs will vary for each student. Indirect costs are not charged through NYU Shanghai.
