Use this website as a resource for all things financial aid and go over our helpful checklist below.
Financial Aid Checklist:
- Assistance is available via live chat, e-mail, and telephone. También se les ofrecen servicios en Español. Be sure to use the IRS data retrieval tool to load your tax data directly to your FAFSA.
- You will need both the FAFSA and your PIN later on if you want to take out loans.
For detailed instructions on how to view your financial aid.
- 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.
