Yes, the program has limited fellowship and scholarship resources. Around 20% of the incoming class will receive merit-based aid. We assess all applications for merit-based scholarships. Our fellowships do require a separate essay in the application. Learn more on our financial aid page.
I applied to NYU Wagner, when will I know about any scholarships that I may receive?
You will receive information about any award you receive when we send out decision letters in March. These scholarships are the only awards Wagner coordinates and provides to students.
NYU encourages you to research graduate student scholarship opportunities in your local community, as that is sometimes a good source of additional funding.
Can full-time students work in the first semester?
Wagner does not recommend that full-time students work in their first semester. Rather, it is advisable to focus on adapting to the new setting of graduate school; also, core courses are a significant time commitment, requiring additional recitation/lab sections in addition to coursework. Once full-time students enter their second semester, most will work part-time.
May I apply as a matriculated student and a non-matriculated student in case I do not gain admission?
Unfortunately, students need to apply to the non-degree program to take classes as a non-matriculated student.
Do you require financial statements during the admissions process?
For admissions purposes we do not require financial statements. If and when you are admitted, NYU's Office of Global Services will follow up with further instructions to clarify the process.
Does NYU Wagner have a large selection of evening classes?
Most classes are held in the late afternoon/evening time slots with some school-wide core courses offered during the day. Some electives or sections of electives are offered on an intensive basis on Saturdays or Fridays.
