Financial Aid for Summer Session(s)

US citizens/eligible non-citizens (NYU New York and NYU Shanghai Students): Federal financial aid (i.e. federal Direct student/parent loan) is available during the summer session(s) for students enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits, who also have a valid FAFSA on file, and are otherwise eligible.

NYU New York Students: Please visit the financial aid website for additional information regarding financial aid options for summer session(s).

All Other Students (includes Visiting Students): Visiting students or current NYU students who are not eligible for federal financial aid will be able to seek out alternative loans. Students seeking alternative loans are encouraged to relay to their potential lender the number of credits they are taking and the type of student they are (i.e. in a degree or non-degree program at NYU) as lenders have different eligibility criteria.

NYU cannot recommend or endorse any particular private lender. Students are encouraged to research their options carefully.  Please visit the financial aid website for more information about private (non-federal) alternative loans.

PLEASE NOTE: Students who decrease or cancel summer session enrollment or who do not attend will have their summer award adjusted or canceled accordingly.  This adjustment in financial aid may result in a balance on your bursar bill. Changes in enrollment affect the cost of attendance and the amount of aid that you are eligible to receive. Your financial aid cannot exceed your estimated cost of attendance.
