Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies Admissions FAQs-Costs & Aid

No, the tuition rates are the same for all students, regardless of residency.

If you are eligible to file the FAFSA (US citizens and permanent residents only) and you are registered for at least six credits each semester, then you are eligible for financial aid. If you drop below six credits, you are not eligible for federal aid or NYU School of Professional Studies scholarships. Students planning to take less than six credits who require financial assistance should consider private or alternative loans.

Because international students are not eligible to file the FAFSA, they are not eligible for US federal aid. Financial aid is very limited for international students, but resources do exist. Many international students find funding opportunities in their home countries. However, if that is not available other options include:

  • Scholarships and fellowships
  • Private loans
  • NYU payment plans

For more information on the above options, please see:

Federal work-study opportunities may be awarded to domestic students who complete the FAFSA, but are generally reserved for students who demonstrate the greatest financial need. Additionally, NYU provides a wide range of traditional employment opportunities for students, and all students can take advantage of career management services offered through their academic department and through the Wasserman Center for Career Development at the NYU School of Professional Studies.

Yes, we encourage all eligible applicants to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for financial aid opportunities, including loans, grants, and need-based scholarships.

Additionally, academic advisors can help you to best achieve your academic goals while staying within your financial budget.
