What's Next Shanghai Fall 2013

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Visiting Student Financial Aid Transfer (Consortium Forms) : In many cases, non-NYU students who receive financial aid from their home school are able to apply some or all of their financial aid toward studying abroad through NYU. To initiate the transfer process, visit the financial aid office at your home institution ASAP and ask to have a consortium agreement established with NYU. This allows your school to process federal aid and transfer it to NYU for a semester or year abroad.  The Office of Financial Aid of your home institution should send as a scanned email attachment to Kate Bruce.

Kate will forward to the appropriate section of the NYU Financial Aid Office for processing.  Please Note, late submissions will be accepted but may mean the initial bill will not reflect the anticipated aid due to processing time.  After it has been processed by the NYU Office of Financial Aid, the form will be returned directly to your home school for completion.

NYU Students’ Appeal for Extra Financial Aid : If you are an NYU upperclassman currently receiving financial aid (must have valid FAFSA on file) you may apply for additional financial aid for your semester or year abroad at an NYU Global Academic Center. Simply complete the online Financial Aid for Study Abroad application form (coming soon).   Once you have submitted the additional financial aid form, the NYU Office of Financial Aid will review it and notify you of your new award package in June. You will view your financial aid package, including any adjustments for upcoming semesters, using Netpartner, the Office of Financial Aid’s online system.
