The preliminary cost of attendance represents the estimated annual cost of education for full-time undergraduate students at NYU Shanghai in US dollars for the academic year presented above. It includes tuition, room and board (which may vary based on a student’s room selection), health insurance, personal expenses, books, and estimated travel costs. 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 (full time enrollment is 12-18 credits or more per semester); course overloads incur additional tuition and book fees. Students that take summer session or J-term courses will incur additional direct and indirect expenses.

Direct costs—such as tuition, registration and services fees, books, room, and health insurance—are costs that will be charged by the university. In July the NYU Office of the Bursar will send you notification of your fall semester’s bill and in December for the spring semester’s bill, which will include these charges. If you utilize financial aid you will see the anticipated aid for the semester deducted from the charges mentioned above on your bursar bill. You will be responsible for any remaining balance due by the semester’s bill due date. For your most current billing information you should log on to your bursar e-Suite portal.  

Indirect costs—such as estimated travel, meals, supplies, and personal expenses—are costs that you may incur during the academic year, which will vary for each student. These indirect costs are not charged through NYU Shanghai but can be used for your planning purposes.
