Our financial aid programs are designed to offer solutions that make achieving your educational goals possible.

The Office of Fellowships and Financial Aid is dedicated to reducing out-of-pocket tuition costs and making education an affordable reality. Our services include:

  • Assistance with financial aid forms and other required documents
  • Processing financial aid in compliance with federal and state regulations
  • Paying financial aid to the student’s bill
  • Advising on alternative aid sources and budgeting

Financial Aid can help students get a world-class education at a great value. As a public college in The City University of New York (CUNY) system, our tuition is a fraction of the cost of attending a private college or university of comparable quality. We encourage you to file your forms early and accurately. To get started, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Be sure to file as soon as possible after October 1, each year. The FAFSA Code for the School of Labor and Urban Studies is 004765. The NYS TAP / HESC Code is 1422.

All financial aid processing for the School of Labor and Urban Studies, including origination, verification and disbursement is managed by the Office of Fellowships and Financial Aid. For more information, please contact financialaid@slu.cuny.edu or (212) 817-7460.

Effective June 13, our in-person hours will be reduced to Tuesdays and Thursdays through the summer. Appointments are recommended. Please email financialaid@slu.cuny.edu to schedule an appointment. We will continue to serve you remotely on Mondays and Wednesdays. CUNY is closed Fridays through August 12.
