Admissions & Aid
Brooklyn College participates in both New York State and Federal Student Financial Aid Grant programs.
Grants are a type of financial aid that does not need to be paid back.
To be considered for federal financial aid, you must be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen. You must also be pursuing a degree program and must maintain satisfactory academic progress to preserve your continuing aid eligibility. Students not yet admitted into a degree program (nondegree students) do not qualify for federal or state student financial aid programs.
A complete list of Basic Eligibility requirements for Federal Student Financial Aid is available on the Federal Student Aid Web portal.
The Federal Student Financial Aid grant programs available at Brooklyn College are:

These programs also have additional eligibility requirements. Each program has different enrollment requirements as well. Learn more about each program by clicking on a page for a specific program.
