Student Financial Aid Office
Students’ enrollment status for financial aid purposes is based on courses in which they are registered at the close of business on the 7th calendar day after the start date of the semester, inclusively. Courses added after this day will not be considered for NYS or federal aid (see Academic Calendars).
For Summer, in which there are multiple sessions, the enrollment status is based on the registration status at the close of business on the latest day of all the tuition refund periods, regardless the session(s) in which a student is enrolled.
Students can receive New York State and federal aid only for qualifying courses in which they attend class. Students must repay aid paid for any course in which there was no attendance.
