Billing & Financial Aid FAQs

  • How do I pay my confirmation fee?

Instructions on how to pay your confirmation fee can be found in your admissions email. Here’s a recap:

Accept or Decline Our Offer Online: Log on to your NYUHome account > Select the “Academics” Tab > Select the “Albert” login link > Click on the “Applicants” link > Select the “Application Status” link under the “Admissions” heading > Click the “Admission Offer” button at the top of the page > Click the “Accept/Decline” link to accept or decline the Admission offer > Click either the “Accept Offer” or “Decline Offer” button > Follow the prompts until you confirm your final decision.

Note: If you accept our offer, please be prepared to pay the required non-refundable tuition deposit by e-check. After you make your final decision, the “Admission Offer” button will no longer be available to you.

By mail or in person (only if you are unable to accept offer online): Please mail a completed Confirmation Form and a check or money order payable to “New York University” to NYU Office of Global Programs, 383 Lafayette Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003.

Note: Please DO NOT SEND CASH. The check or money order must be in U.S. funds only and include your University ID number (see above) and Study Away site in the memo section. Once we receive your reservation fee, the “Admission Offer” button will no longer be available to you.

**It is this confirmation form and deposit that guarantees your place in the program. Please note that program space is limited. If the program reaches capacity before we receive your deposit, you will be placed on a waitlist. Deposits are encouraged within two weeks of acceptance to the program**

  • Can I work at NYU Shanghai?

Work-study awards do not travel with you to NYU Shanghai, but there may be some on-campus employment opportunities. You can review which jobs are available when you gain access to the NYU Shanghai CareerNet in December. Do keep in mind that the jobs are largely administrative and provide a basic salary that is not meant to be relied on for substantial financial aid.
