Payment Information

Students have a number of options when it comes to paying their bill. Students can pay their tuition bill in full or enroll in one of NYU’s payment plans. There are also different payment methods, including international payments available for students to use. Learn about making payments, payment methods, payment plans and international payments.


Refunding your Payment

A refundable credit balance may result on your student account because of financial aid disbursements, over-payments and/or account adjustments. Refunds caused by financial aid and loan payments are issued after the initial disbursement of financial aid, which generally occurs 10 days prior to the start of the semester. Refunds are processed continually during the semester as aid is credited to the student account.

The fastest way to receive your refund is to enroll in the direct deposit of student refunds. Students who do not enroll in the direct deposit of student refunds will have their refund issued by check.

Refund checks for graduate students who have not enrolled in direct deposit will be mailed to the student’s local address. To ensure receipt of your refund check, it is important to maintain your address in Albert Student Center.

If you have not paid your fees in full, any credit balance you are eligible to receive will be applied to your unpaid balance. If you withdraw from the University or lose eligibility for financial aid due to a change in enrollment, your refund will be returned to the financial aid programs.

Authorized E-Suite Users

If you are a person other than the student, like a parent, guardian, grandparent, spouse, or anyone helping pay tuition and fees other than a third party sponsor, you will not automatically receive a bill for the semester charges unless the student gives you access to view and pay the bill on-line in eSuite. This process is called authorizing a user.

NYU Financial Aid Explained

 

Learn about Financial Aid & Loan ServicingStudents who wish to be considered for federal or state financial aid, including loans, should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students apply for federal financial aid electronically. Be sure to complete all required sections of the FAFSA. The federal school code number for NYU is 002785. This process is for U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens only.

After the FAFSA has been filed, reviewed and processed, which can take a few weeks, you will receive an email notification that directs you to log onto the ALBERT system and view your suggested financial aid awards. These awards will include information about federal loans and work study (if eligible).

If you have any questions or you need further guidance do not hesitate to speak with a Financial Aid Counselor.

Important financial aid dates and deadlines are posted one month in advance on the Events Calendar.


Scholarships and Grants from Other Organizations

In addition to loan servicing, you may also be eligible for a private scholarship or grant from an outside organization or agency. Some sources to explore are employers, unions, professional organizations, and community and special interest groups.
