In order to apply for financial aid from NYU, you must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is available on the FAFSA website each year starting on October 1. Submit this form as soon as possible after October 1, and indicate that your data is to be sent to New York University, code number 002785. You must submit a FAFSA each year to determine and renew your financial aid. Read more about NYU financial aid packages, types of financial aid, and loans.
The deadline to submit the FAFSA is December 3. NYU's Office of Financial Aid will begin sending notifications via email in early December for candidates accepted into the program. Apply early – applying after the deadline will delay the processing of federal aid and student loans.
We strongly encourage the use of the FAFSA Data Retrieval Tool whenever possible. The Data Retrieval Tool allows students to import their tax information into the FAFSA directly from the IRS.
For help in completing the FAFSA, call 800-4-FED-AID.
If you have questions about financial aid, please email NYU’s Financial Aid Office or call 212-998-4444 to speak with a financial aid counselor.
