Domestic Applicants

Prior to Acceptance:

Please note that for private loans and for the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, eligibility is contingent upon a credit check. Therefore, it is prudent that you review your credit history before applying. You may refer to our credit report resource page as well as our Graduate PLUS Loan credit check criteria page.


After Acceptance:

  • Once you have been accepted to Stern and have submitted your deposit, NYU will set up your federal student loans.
  • You will receive an award notice via your Stern email account with instructions on how to view, accept, or decline your federal student loans.
  • If you have elected to borrow a private student loan, contact us to request your loan be certified approximately 3 weeks before your payment deadline.
