Maintaining and Renewing Your Aid

To receive need-based financial aid, students must meet minimum academic standards and graduation requirements within a standard timeframe as determined at the outset of the student’s attendance in their program of study. NYUAD adheres to these standards to ensure appropriate stewardship of NYUAD funding. To ensure compliance, the Office of Financial Aid performs annual reviews of each student’s quantitative progress toward successful degree completion at the conclusion of the summer term.

Enrolled students are eligible to receive financial aid for a total of four years or until they are eligible to graduate.

In order to maintain eligibility to receive financial aid from New York University Abu Dhabi, enrolled students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress, defined as:

  • Earn academic credit in a minimum of 75 percent of the cumulative attempted credit hours.
  • Maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0.
