NYU Albert

Students will access their financial aid awards via NYU Albert. This university-wide system is a portal to the student information system. For Graduate Stern students, this site will be used only for financial aid purposes. Through Albert, you will be able to accept, reduce or decline your federal loans and keep track of your application approval process. Albert will also display any other aid you may have been awarded.
