Tuition and Expenses

Tuition and Fees

School of Engineering students accepted for study abroad will continue to pay the standard NYU School of Engineering tuition and fees directly to NYU via Albert. In that regard, tuition and fees at participating host universities are waived. This tuition must be completely paid prior to departure. Students who fail to pay their New York University tuition in a timely manner will forfeit their participation in the study abroad program.


For each of the School of Engineering approved study abroad programs, students are required to pay housing directly to the host institution. If a student is studying abroad via NYU, they pay their housing costs through Albert. All other programs will require the housing costs to be paid by the student directly to the host university. Different schools have different policies.

If you are enrolled in housing at NYU and wish to deenroll, you must notify the Office of Undergraduate Academics via email at

Financial Aid

Students who currently receive financial aid may continue to receive this assistance and apply it towards their study abroad semester or year. Financial aid programs that may be transferable for study abroad include Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, and Parent (PLUS) Loans. For further information regarding financial assistance please contact the Financial Aid Office.

Transportation Arrangements and Living Expenses

Students are responsible for all transportation (including airfare), housing, food, health insurance, books, study materials, and other costs while abroad.

Withdrawal and Refunds

Students who wish to withdraw from the program must notify the Office of Undergraduate Academics as in writing prior to taking ant official action. Any withdrawal made without notifying the Office of Undergraduate Academics will prevent the student from receiving a refund. Refund eligibility is based on the withdrawal schedule and University policies, as published in the School of Engineering bulletin and the University website. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with all relevant schedules and policies.

Outside Scholarships

Students 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.

It is important to be aware of the financial implications that receiving an outside scholarship can have. Outside scholarships are considered a financial aid resource and must be added to a student's total financial aid award. The Office of Financial Aid first applies the outside scholarship to a student's unmet need that is not already covered by financial aid. In some cases, loans not based on financial need may be reduced (private loans, Federal Unsubsidized Loans, Federal PLUS Loans, Graduate PLUS). If the student's need is already met by need-based aid, then that aid is replaced with the outside scholarship. Need-based loans are first replaced. If the outside scholarship exceeds the loan amounts, work-study and need-based grants are the next to be replaced. In most cases it is not necessary to reduce an NYU scholarship. Total aid (including outside assistance) cannot exceed the total cost of attendance.
