The Office of Student Financial Services helps students navigate forms and procedures for all tuition and loan-related matters.

Apply to Fafsa

If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and you wish to be considered for federal financial aid, you must complete the 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Students may apply as early as October 1 in the year prior to enrollment. The priority filing deadline is May 1, but the FAFSA application may be completed after the priority deadline. Be sure to specify New York University in the school section of the FAFSA. The federal school code for NYU is 002785.

Additional basic eligibility criteria is available at the Federal Student Aid site.


Students and parents of dependent students may use a FSA ID (Federal Student Aid ID) to sign the FAFSA electronically and avoid the need to print and mail a signature page. The FSA ID can be used each year to apply for federal student aid and to review your record online at the U.S. Department of Education. To create your FSA ID, go to the Federal Student Aid Website.

Once your information is verified with the Social Security Administration (typically 1-3 days from the date you apply), you will receive an email indicating that the process is complete. At that time, you will be able to use your FSA ID to access your financial aid information on federal student aid websites such as and, and on the myStudentAid mobile app.
