HOW FINANCIAL AID IS AWARDED:
Financial aid is designed to help individuals meet their educational expenses when their own resources are not enough. Typically, Federal and State financial aid is based on income and is available to families who demonstrate financial need. In order to meet, as closely as possible, your financial need, the financial aid office first awards any federal and state grants and scholarships for which you are eligible (e.g., Pell Grants, SEOG Grants, NYS TAP). If needed, Federal Direct Loans are then added to your aid package to help cover tuition, fees and eligible educational expenses. Your total financial aid package, including grants, scholarships, tuition reimbursements, and loans may not exceed your total cost of attendance. Once all paperwork is complete, you will be notified via email of your eligibility and provided with an Award Letter in the Empower system.
