Financial Aid Programs

Federal Financial Aid Programs

Eligibility for all federal student aid programs is determined by the FAFSA. Federal financial aid is available in the form of grants, loans and work-study.

A federal grant does not have to be repaid. Pell Grant and Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) are federal grants.

A federal student loan is money you borrow and must pay back with interest. There are three types of federal student loans; subsidized, unsubsidized and parent loans.

Federal work-study provides part-time employment opportunities for students to work on campus when they are not attending class.

New York State Financial Aid Programs

New York State residents may apply for tuition assistance through the TAP or APTS programs. New York also offers merit based scholarships, aid to eligible Native American students, and incentive programs for students studying in certain STEM programs.
