Financial aid for undergraduate students is processed through the university’s Office of Financial Aid. If eligible, students will receive an award package from the university following their admission. You can find the tuition & fee rate for the undergraduate programs in Tisch School of the Arts at the Bursar.
Domestic students interested in government funding should fill out their FAFSA as soon as possible before the priority deadline. You are welcome to apply prior to receiving an admission decision since the FAFSA is applicable to most higher education institutions. Students can no longer fill out a FAFSA form after June 30th, 2018 and will not be considered for government aid.
International students should use the CSS profile to apply for non-government aid.
The NYU Game Center has partnered with the Evo tournament to create an annual full-tuition scholarship to study game design at New York University. The Evo Scholarship is open to anyone who is passionate about fighting games and eSports. The scholarship is funded by subscriptions to the Evo tournament live stream and by a generous gift from world-famous fighting game champion Daigo Umehara.
In addition to selecting the Evo box on the scholarship section of the Slideroom Application, applicants must submit a one-page statement describing their relationship to competitive games & ideas about the design of the genre.
