Financial Aid

US Student Loans

Students who wish to use US financial aid may be eligible for federal and/or private student loans. Federal loans consist of funding provided by the government to domestic students (U.S. citizens and permanent residents only). To apply, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please visit http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ for details.

Private loans are non-federal loans that are offered through lenders such as banks or credit unions. Most private lenders require non-U.S. citizens and permanent residents to apply with a U.S. based co-signer.

For more information on federal loan programs and private loans for U.S. citizens and permanent residents, please email the Graduate Admissions Office: shanghai.gradadmissions@nyu.edu.

Scholarships

All applicants (domestic and international) are considered for merit-based scholarships. No additional materials are required to be considered. Scholarship decisions are made at the time of admission and are included in your official mailed admission letter. All scholarship decisions are final.
