• Financial Aid
  • Continuing in our commitment to provide quality services to our students in a timely manner, students may walk-in or schedule an appointment by calling 718-482-5242 to complete their FAFSA and TAP on the web. Staff will be available to answer your questions.

    The Student Financial Services provides you assistance with FAFSA and TAP online applications, along with additional information, financial aid counseling, and assistance in completing your forms. The office conducts regular daily workshops to help you with your financial aid applications and operates a Financial Aid lab to allow you to file your FAFSA and TAP on the web.  You can also find the answers to your questions about completing the FAFSA at the following US Department of Education website.

     

    FAFSA on the web is immediate. In contrast, the response to a paper application takes 6-8 weeks. When you file your FAFSA on the Web, you will be able to apply for TAP on the Web as well. Have the following documents when filing on-line:

     

    • Your (and your parent's if required) 2013 federal and state tax returns, W2s and other financial records.
    • 2013 Statement of Child Support received/paid.
    • 2013 Combat pay or special combat pay (military)
    • Housing, food and living allowances paid to members of the military, clergy and others (including cash payments).
    • Veterans non-educational benefits.
    • Any untaxed income (Disability, Death Pension & Foreign Income)
    • Current Bank Statements (Student & Parent)
    • Records of other investments
    • Dependent student(s) should have their parent(s)' Social Security number(s) and Date of Birth (mm/dd/yyyy)

    • While on the FAFSA Confirmation Page, click on the link for New York State residents located just above "Your estimated Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is:" on the FAFSA confirmation screen to call up TAP on the Web.
