Federal Funding and Private Loans

Domestics students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please visit the FAFSA website for the online application and instructions.

You must include the NYU federal school code number 002785 in the school section of the FAFSA to ensure that your information is accurately transmitted to New York University from the federal processor.

Please note federal student aid is provided only to U.S. Citizens and U.S. permanent residents.

If you completed the FAFSA, you will receive an email notification that directs you to log on to NYU Albert and view your suggested financial aid awards. This award will include information about federal loans and work study (if eligible). If you were awarded funding through CUSP, this award was included in your admission letter, but may not appear immediately in the Albert system. Please do not be concerned if your suggested financial aid award does not include your CUSP award, but be mindful that:

  • Your CUSP award information will be posted in the Albert Student Center within the next month.
  • Once your CUSP award is posted and viewable, in the Financial Aid section of the Albert Student Center, the Office of Financial Aid will send you an email with instructions on how to secure the award.
  • Upon notification of your institutional aid, NYU’s Office of Financial Aid may reduce your suggested loan eligibility by the amount of your CUSP award to stay within your estimated cost of attendance as reflected in your Financial Aid Summary. Please allow time for these adjustments to process.

Private Loan Programs

A number of loan programs are available to graduate students and their families. For further information, please visit the Financial Aid website.

International Students

Financing options are limited. All applicants, including international students are considered for NYU CUSP’s merit-based funding; however, many international students who are able to enroll in NYU CUSP may do so additionally with scholarships or loan funding from their home countries. Very few private (non-federal) alternative loans are available to international students; all will require a U.S. cosigner to be granted the loan. For more information please visit
