The Top 3 Things You Need To Know Now!
- Update to the federal financial aid disbursement date.
This fall, Financial Aid will begin disbursing aid* on Aug. 19, 2019. This new disbursement date means eligible students will receive their funds earlier than in previous semesters. (No action required.)
As a reminder, students must satisfy all eligibility requirements to receive financial aid. Changes to enrollment status after the disbursement date may require a partial or full repayment of funds.
*New York State awards will continue to be reflected as anticipated aid on your student account until either the fifth week of classes or the end of the term, depending on the award type.
- Documents and loan applications received between Fri., Aug. 2 and Fri., Sept. 27 will be processed by the second eBill due date.
- Does your financial aid package include an New York State award estimate? To be eligible for an award listed as an estimate, you must complete the required NYS application(s) and meet all other eligibility requirements. Awards include the TAP Grant, Excelsior Scholarship, and STEM Scholarship among others. Estimates will be cancelled if all requirements are not satisfied.
Reminder: Students pursuing New York State financial aid must have a final official high school transcript or an approved equivalent on file by Mon., Aug. 26, 2019.
