Use this website as a resource for all things financial aid and go over our helpful checklist below.

Financial Aid Checklist:

1. Go to FAFSA.ed.gov, complete your FREE Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and keep track of your Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID). If you are a Dependent student, your parent will also require a FSA ID.

2.  Use Baruch's college code (007273) when filling out the FAFSA and when filling out the application for the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (1409).

3.  After filling out your FAFSA, you'll be assigned an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Your EFC and your estimated Cost of Attendance is what we use to determine your need-based awards.

4.  If you qualify for federal grants and/or loans, you can check the Distribution Calendar to find out when you will be receiving your awards.

For detailed instructions on how to view your financial aid.

Please note:

  • The Academic Census Date is the point at which a student’s enrollment status is locked for financial (e.g., Federal aid, scholarships, etc.) aid purposes. This is the date the Office of Financial Aid Services takes a "snapshot" of students' enrollment to establish the "official enrollment" for financial aid eligibility. At this point in the session/term/semester, credit hours are locked and financial aid for the term is reviewed, and adjusted if needed, to reflect the student's enrolled credits that are eligible to receive financial aid. For example, a full-time student dropped credits before the census date, the student’s financial aid will be evaluated and possibly reduced to match the number of credits enrolled as of the Census Date. Credits added after the Census Date cannot be used to increase financial aid eligibility.
  • You are only responsible for covering charges that are not covered by pending aid on CUNYFirst.
