Graduate Tuition Deposit

Once again, congratulations on your admission to the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. To confirm your enrollment in our incoming class, please accept your offer of admission and pay your non-refundable $300 tuition deposit by following the steps below. This deposit is due by the date indicated in your acceptance letter and is credited toward your first semester's tuition bill.

Note: now that our integration with New York University’s systems is nearly complete, the process for accepting your offer of admission and paying your tuition deposit has changed slightly.

In addition, the ‘Poly ID’ that may have been indicated on your letter of admission has been replaced by an NYU University ID (a nine-digit code beginning with a capital ‘N’). To find your University ID, check your admission letter. If you received a printed admission letter with a Poly ID on it, you may need to log in to your application account and check your online admission letter (which will have your NYU University ID on it).

To accept your offer of admission and pay your tuition deposit, please take the following steps:

  1. Activate and learn your NetID at NYU Start. Visit Learn Your NetID and enter your University ID and date of birth to activate and learn your NetID (a unique alphanumeric code that NYU assigns to you, e.g. xyz123), and set a password.
  2. Sign-in to NYUHome. Go to NYUHome. NYUHome is a portal of entry to access NYU services online. Your login is your NetID, and your password is the one you have just created.
  3. Officially accept your offer of admission and pay the graduate tuition deposit by the deadline. To accept your offer of admission, once signed in to NYUHome, access NYUAlbert and click on “Applicants”, followed by “Application Status,” followed by “Admissions Offer.” Please then follow the online accept/decline process by following the instructions on the following pages. (Note: all admitted students must officially accept their offer of admission, including those with fully-funded fellowships who do not need to pay the deposit.)

As a reminder for our international students, we will not issue an I-20 until you have submitted your graduate tuition deposit. We are excited that you, our new student, will have access to NYU online services, including NYU e-mail, earlier than ever before, and we hope you will take advantage by accepting your offer today.
