Fall/Spring Undergraduate Financial Aid Application
If you are a new, stopped-out, or first-time aid student, you are required to complete:
Students may be required to submit copies of income documentation, which means a copy of the requested year’s IRS Tax transcript or non-taxable income documentation (such as from Social Security). Monitor your “To Do” list in MySlice periodically after submitting your completed FAFSA to see what documentation is required to complete your UC Financial aid application.
NOTE: Students admitted for summer or returning in summer after stopping-out for more than a year must complete two years’ FAFSAs, as the summer term is the final term in the academic year; fall, spring, summer. To receive summer aid, the current academic year’s FAFSA is needed (for which June 30th is the last date by which it can be completed). To receive aid in fall, spring and summer of the upcoming year, the newest FAFSA is required. Although summer may be your first term, it is not the first term of the academic year, which is why 2 years’ FAFSAs are needed. If you have questions, please contact the financial aid office.
If you are a continuous-returning Undergraduate aid student, you are require to complete:
Renewing students taking six (6) credit hours per term may need to complete only the FAFSA when renewing in consecutive years. Other enrollment loads and requests for work study, or increasing loan request amounts require students to submit an online application. Income documentation may or may not be required from students. Your financial aid advisor will review the FAFSA results after they are received. If documentation is needed, a task will be posted to MySlice . Check your financial aid status regularly.
Undergraduate Child Care Grant Application
The University College Financial Aid Office provides information about child care grants and information to UC undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. With sponsorship from Syracuse University’s Human Resources department, UC has entered into a partnership with Child Care Solutions, a local not-for-profit organization that provides information, referrals, and educational materials to parents who need child care in order to continue their education. Grant money awarded to a student is posted to the student’s Bursar account and paid by UC directly to the child care provider. Students must apply each semester. The Child Care Grant Application is available for undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need.
NYS Aid for Part-time Study Application
This grant program is financed by New York State in conjunction with participating educational institutions throughout the state. The program provides up to $2,000 per academic year (depending on annual state allocation of funds to institutions) to help part-time undergraduate students meet their educational tuition expenses. The prior year NYS income tax return (not federal) must accompany the APTS application.
Family Member(s) in College Verification Form
If you reported on your FAFSA that more than one family member will be enrolled in college, this information must be verified. Use this form to submit your verification. Changes in the number of family members originally reported in college will result in a review of your financial aid award. Adjustments may be made to the original financial aid award.
Release of Student Information
Syracuse University/University College fully complies with the Federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regarding the release of student information. If a student wishes to give a third party permission to discuss their student records, the student must complete the Release of Student Information form and submit it to the Registrar’s office at UC.
Veterans Administration Educational Benefits Request for Certification Form
Also called the ‘GI Bill’, this program supports veterans, their dependents and their survivors. The SU Veterans’ Resource Center, housed at University College certifies enrollment of SU students who wish to use VA Educational Benefits. First time use requires completion of this form and either a copy of the Certificate of Eligibility for Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefit or a copy of the veteran’s DD214. A copy of this request for certification form must be completed for each term in which the student requesting VA Educational Benefits wishes to enroll. VA Rehabilitation Benefits are administered between the student’s VA counselor and the SU Bursar Office, 102 Archbold North.
