Prospective Students

The Stern Graduate Financial Aid Office recognizes that obtaining a graduate degree is not only a tremendous opportunity, but an important investment in your future. We are dedicated to providing our students with all the resources and advice needed to successfully navigate the financial aid process.

If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you are eligible to apply for federal student loans. It is never too early to begin the financial aid process. Therefore, we advise that you submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) while applying for admission.

International applicants residing here in the U.S. on an eligible visa, must demonstrate that they will have sufficient financial resources throughout the duration of their studies. Resources may include company sponsorship, merit-based Stern scholarships (if applicable), external aid and personal finances. For additional financial aid opportunities, international students may visit the international student loans page.
