Types of Financial Aid

There are many different programs available to assist families in meeting the cost of higher education. Although every family‚Äôs resources may be different, a financial aid offer wil be provided if a FAFSA is filed.Based on individual eligibility, the offer may consist of federal student loans only or a combination of other funds such as grantsscholarships, NYS aidloans, and/or federal work-study.

Aid is also available for education abroad and winter/summer sessions.

Basic responsibility for financing higher education rests with students and their families; financial aid is offered to supplement the family's maximum financial effort.
