Financial Aid Considerations, Graduate Students

Students should be aware of NYU’s policies regarding financial aid, including:

  • To be considered for financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • To maintain eligibility for financial aid, students must meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.
  • Graduate Gallatin students are eligible for scholarships towards a maximum of 40 units of study, which is the required number of units for the MA degree as determined by Gallatin.
  • Students must be enrolled for a minimum of 6 units to be eligible for Gallatin scholarship and federal financial aid (e.g. loans).
  • The amount of a scholarship awarded upon admission to Gallatin is based on full-time enrollment (12 or more attempted units per semester during the academic year, fall and spring semesters).
  • If a student registers for fewer than 12 units, but for 6 or more units, scholarship amounts will be prorated as follows:

» registration for 6-8 units, 50% of the semester scholarship amount

» registration for 9-11 units, 75% of the semester scholarship amount

  • Students who are granted Full-Time or Part-Time Equivalency are not eligible for scholarship aid.
  • A student registered only for MA Thesis II (2 units) in the final semester of study does not qualify for scholarship aid.
  • A student registered for Thesis Advisement (1 unit) does not qualify for scholarship aid.
