Note: For students in the Departments of Cinema Studies (not including the MIAP program) and Performance Studies, tuition and fees for full-time course work are calculated on a per-point basis and can be found under the Graduate School of Arts and Science.
Additional expenses that may be applicable to all graduate students include University mandatory health insurance fees, which for 2009-2010 was $1,360 for the basic plan and $2,132 for the comprehensive plan. Design students should anticipate the purchase of a drafting table and basic art supplies. Second- and third-year estimates assume ongoing art supplies.
Film Production students must pay laboratory and equipment insurance fees of approximately $681 per semester. Those who are directors of student projects may incur production costs above and beyond what is reasonably supplied by the school (in the way of cameras, equipment, stock, soundstage facilities, postproduction rooms for editing and sound mixing, processing, and other resources). On average, additional costs have been estimated as follows: $2,000 to $5,000 for the first year; $5,000 to $15,000 for the second year; $15,000 and up for the third-year (thesis). It is possible to keep these costs down, but the great majority of student directors spend the indicated amounts.
All Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) students must pay a laboratory and equipment fee per semester. This fee covers the full use of ITP computer facilities and equipment. Additional costs may be incurred for materials as students develop their own projects.
A number of payment options, including a tuition installment plan, are offered through New York University's Office of the Bursar.
