NYU applicants pay a non-refundable application fee of USD 80, which can be paid online by credit card and not cash. If you must submit a check or money order instead, include your name, Common Application and/or NYU University ID number on your check or money order. Please make your check or money order payable to New York University and send to:
Receiving a receipt for the payment of your fee does not mean that your Common Application has been submitted. You must check your submission status on the Common Application website to ensure that both your Common Application and required NYU Supplement have been submitted to be eligible for admission.
Students who feel that the application fee would pose a financial hardship may request a fee waiver. All applicants will be asked "Do you feel that your financial circumstances might qualify you for an application fee waiver?" on the Common Application. If you would like to request a fee waiver, please answer "yes" when prompted by the Common Application. After you have completed and submitted your application, submit your brief request for a waiver in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not hear from us in two business days, you can assume that your request has been granted. Requesting a fee waiver will not disadvantage an applicant in any way.
We cannot consider your fee waiver request after you apply for admission if you did not respond with "yes" on the Common Application.
