The Financial Aid Process, Step by Step

1. File Your FAFSA and TAP Applications


Filing the FAFSA application is your first step in determining your financial aid eligibility.

Once you file your FAFSA on, you’ll receive a link to the New York State Tuition Assistance Program, or TAP, which offers grants to eligible New York State residents.

Allow up to seven days for us to receive your FAFSA application.

FAFSA School Code: 002687

Federal Student Aid—Applying for Aid


The easiest way to file your TAP application is through the FAFSA. Once you file the FAFSA, you will receive a link to the TAP application. Make sure you follow the prompts to successfully file the TAP application.

According to the New York State Dream Act, some students may qualify to file only a TAP application.

TAP School Code: 1410
