*Living Expenses are estimated indirect costs provided for budgetary purposes. We encourage families to include estimated living expenses when doing your financial planning. NYCDA Health Insurance is included in the total calculation of living expenses, but it is optional and will be deducted if the student is currently self-insured or on a parent or legal guardian’s insurance plan.

Transportation

Distance between The New York Conservatory and the Third Street Residence is 1.3 miles. Students are recommended to walk to save on the cost of transportation. Students who need to add transportation may add $1,089 for nine 30-day unlimited MetroCards.

Determining Financial Need

In developing a student’s financial aid award package, NYCDA begins by constructing a budget based on the estimated cost of education for the academic year, including tuition, supplies, and living expenses.
A student’s need for financial assistance is defined as the difference between the estimated cost of attendance and the student’s available resources.
