Financial aid personnel are available to assist students and their families to complete their applications for federal, state and local financial aid programs. Helpful technical guidance in the office's FAFSA mini-lab is also provided so that the application process can be easy and error-free. Financial aid counseling and technical assistance are free services and are available on a walk-in basis.
The early application deadlines set by the College for filing financial aid forms are
- April 15th for summer sessions
- May 31st for fall semester

You may apply after these dates, but awards may not be processed in time to meet the Bursar’s deadlines for making payment arrangements.
Different financial aid programs require different types of information and documentation. To document income, students may be required to submit Federal IRS tax transcripts and New York State Income Tax forms for the student/spouse and/or parents, as well as other evidence of taxable and/or nontaxable income.
