Tuition and Financial Aid

Educational costs are assessed each term and are based on the number of credits a student enrolls in per term. A moderate increase in tuition and registration/service fees is to be expected each academic year. The Board of Trustees at NYU reserves the right to alter the schedule of fees without notice.

  • Total cost per credit: $2,101
  • Registration/service fee for first credit each term: $550
  • Registration/service fee for additional credits each term: $75

Financial Aid

Counseling@NYU applicants may be considered for scholarships, based upon their application for admission. No separate application for scholarships is necessary. These scholarships will be awarded to a select number of aspiring school and mental health counselors committed to making a difference in their community.

Financial aid is available to help fund your graduate studies. 

To apply for Federal student loans, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and add the NYU school code: 002785. The FAFSA must be completed each academic year to remain eligible for Federal Student Aid.

Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan: Most graduate students are potentially eligible to receive up to $20,500 per academic year.

Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan: This credit-based loan is a supplement to the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. The maximum loan amount is up to the student’s cost of attendance minus any other financial aid received.
