The Office of Financial Aid administers federal and state funds for both undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as those provided by special programs and the School itself, to ensure that you will have an opportunity to pursue higher education at the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies (CUNY SLU). The office will work with you to combine scholarships, grants, and loans to help meet the difference between the cost of college and the contributions you and your family are able to make.
Most award amounts are based on need, and you will have to maintain good academic standing.
To receive both Federal and State financial aid as a CUNY student, you must complete two forms: the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and, if you or your parents are New York State residents and you are a full time student (12 credits or more), the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application. Both forms can be completed online (FAFSA). If you have questions while completing the FAFSA form you may contact the FAFSA help line at 800-433-3243. You will be directed to the TAP application after completing the online FAFSA (additional TAP information).
