Keep an updated copy of the academic calendar, and highlight the dates and deadlines. It is imperative that you meet all deadlines for registration, dropping or adding a class, applying for financial aid, etc.
All students requesting financial aid must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each academic year. Additional requirements for completing financial aid applications depend on which type of aid applicant you are.
University College offers a number of scholarships and grants for need-based and merit-based students, and student veterans.
Students must apply each academic year for financial aid.
The application process consists of completing the University College Undergraduate Financial Aid Application and a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application. Students must also submit copies of income documentation, which means an IRS transcript of the most recent year’s completed tax return, or non-taxable income documentation, such as from Social Security.
*Stopped-out returning refers to students who have been absent from the aid process for one or more years.
Renewing students taking six (6) credit hours per term may need to complete the FAFSA only when renewing in consecutive years. Other enrollment loads and requests for work-study, increasing loan request amounts, or notifying the Financial Aid Office of an outside resource require students to submit an online application.
Income documentation may or may not be required from Continuing-returning students. The student’s financial aid advisor will review the FAFSA results after they are received. If documentation is needed, a “To Do” item will be posted to the student’s MySlice account. Students should check their financial aid “To Do” list in MySlice regularly.
File the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applicants may begin filing the FAFSA on January 1, 2016. The last day to file is June 30, 2017.
*Increased unsubsidized loan amounts available to independent students only, or those dependent students whose parents have been denied a PLUS.
Note: University College HEOP students who are academic freshmen are not permitted to borrow. Upper class students may not exceed aggregate maximum of $20,500, following New York State HEOP guidelines.
