Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid

Student Financial Services assists you with applying for Financial Aid and understanding the process involved. The process requires various applications, documentation and deadlines.

2020-2021 Enhanced Tuition Award Application is Open!

New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) informed us that they opened the 2020-21 Enhanced Tuition Award (ETA) application. The application will remain open until August 31, unless the Governor extends the application deadline date. Also, due to the state’s devastating revenue loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the absence of the state receiving any multi-year federal funding, ETA awards may be reduced and/or prioritized for students who received ETA awards in 2019-2020.

FAFSA: 2020-2021 Academic Year

Students who are applying for admission for the 2020-2021 academic year and are interested in receiving federal and state aid should complete the 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The 2020-2021 FAFSA is open from October 1, 2019 through June 30, 2021 and uses 2018 tax information.
It is highly recommended applicants complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after it becomes available on October 1, 2019.
