The student must be:
- Enrolled for at least six (6) credits each semester in a degree seeking program
- In good academic standing
- Making satisfactory academic progress as defined by The City University of New York
The student cannot be in default of any federal educational loans and/or owe a federal grant repayment.
The most vital step in applying for federal loans is the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We urge you to apply for financial aid for each upcoming academic year before the deadline of April 15.
The 2022-2023 FAFSA is based on your 2020 tax information. If your income has changed drastically since 2020, you should also complete the Income Adjustment Form and submit it to the Office of Fellowships and Financial Aid via the Drop Off Service: https://www.gc.cuny.edu/fellowships-and-financial-aid
