When considering ability to pay for college, the annual cost is often discussed but it's the "all in" multi-year degree cost which matters in the end. Let's take a look at what it could really cost for four years at New York University.
At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 4 year bachelor's degree at New York University is $195,280 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 4 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you're in school. It also assumes you receive no grant or scholarship aid and pay the full list price.

If you end up on the "five year plan" and need an additional year to graduate, your five year cost could be as high as $244,100 or $184,170 using an average net price.
