2022-2023 Financial Aid Filing Requirements for Returning NYU Shanghai Students
Please review this information to be sure that you do not miss out on any financial aid opportunities for next year.
Typically, you will continue to receive the same amount of NYU Shanghai scholarship and/or grant that you received your first year (subject to the availability of funds), as long as you are a full-time student (enrolled in 12 credits or more per semester). If you enroll in 6-11 credits per semester, your scholarship and/or grant will be prorated. If you enroll in 5 credits or fewer per semester, your scholarship and/or grant will be canceled.
U.S. Citizens or Official Permanent Residents
Returning undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or eligible non-citizens must file the FAFSA using NYU's school code (002785) in order to renew their federal financial aid each year.
The 2022-2023 FAFSA will be made available as of Oct 1st to be completed here.
In order to qualify for financial aid, you must meet the requirements below:
- You are enrolled at least half time (enroll in 6 credits or more per semester).
- You applied for financial aid on time (generally May 1).
- You are meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards (for U.S. federal aid eligibility).
More information about the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards can be found on the NYU’s Financial Aid website.
All Other Students (Non-Chinese Nationals)
It is not necessary to submit the CSS Profile in order to renew your NYU Shanghai scholarship and/or grant. Your scholarship and/or grant will be renewed at the same amount as long as you are enrolled as a full-time student (enroll in 12 credits or more per semester). If you enroll in 6-11 credits per semester your scholarship and/or grant will be prorated. If you enroll in 5 credits or less per semester your scholarship and/or grant will be canceled.
Supporting Financial Documentation
You do not need to submit any financial documents to our office at this time. We will begin reviewing your FAFSA application after May 1 for U.S. federal financial aid. At that time, if we need documentation to verify the information reported on your application, we will email you that request directly to your NYU email address as well as list the requirements on your To Do List (via NYU Albert).
Study Abroad/Study Away
Students maintain the same amount of NYU Shanghai scholarship and/or grant funds if they are studying away at another NYU site and are registered full time (enroll in 12 credits or more in a fall or spring semester). U.S. federal aid eligible students studying away at a site that has a higher cost of attendance than NYU Shanghai can seek out additional federal loans.
There are also private (nonfederal) alternative student loan options for any student looking to obtain additional funding to help with study away costs. For more information on private loans, click here.
New York University does not prefer, recommend, promote, or endorse any particular lender and students should research their options accordingly. Of course, you are not required to borrow from any of the lenders listed and there is no penalty for selecting a different lender if you prefer.
We strongly recommend that you review the estimated associated costs for the site that you are planning on visiting as room and meals, travel and personal expenses vary by location. More information can be accessed through the NYU Study Abroad website, here as well as the NYU Shanghai Study Away Out of Shanghai site, here.
