Financial Aid

Financial Aid at NYU Shanghai

NYU Shanghai is committed to providing educational opportunities to all talented students. Financial support at NYU Shanghai is significant. As such, we encourage all applicants to NYU Shanghai, regardless of citizenship, to apply for financial aid.

Financial Aid for Applicants Outside China

Financial aid may take the form of university scholarships, federal aid (for US citizens/official permanent residents of the United States), or outside scholarships. 

For most undergraduates, eligibility for merit-based and/or need-based scholarships is determined based on your prior academic strengths and on your demonstrated financial need, if you apply for financial aid.

If you wish to be reviewed for need-based institutional funding, you will need to file the College Board’s CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE online by our required deadlines. US citizens, permanent residents, and eligible non-citizens also need to complete the FAFSA for aid consideration.

Please review the information on our website under Applying for Financial Aid for more details about the required application(s).
