Paying for College

At CSI, we make it easy for you to fulfill your dreams by supplementing our affordable tuition with a number of financial aid options including federal PELL and SEOG, New York State TAP, loans, and more.

CSI's financial aid professionals will help you apply for financial aid by explaining the filing process in simple, easy-to-follow steps.The Enrollment Services Center, located in the atrium of the North Administration Building, can assist prospective and current students who are planning to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as well as the New York State TAP application on the web.

Federal financial aid includes:

  • The PELL grant program
  • Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program
  • The Federal Work-Study Program

Direct loans are also available to eligible students.

New York State aid programs include, among others:

  • The Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
  • Aid For Part-time Study (APTS)
  • Military Awards
  • Search for Education Elevation and Knowledge (SEEK)

The cost of a first-class education does not have to exceed your means!

Due to the delays with the rollout of the 24-25 FAFSA and release of FAFSA data to institutions by the federal government, there will be delays in official Financial Aid Offers.  To receive an estimated Financial Aid Offer package for CSI for the 24-25 academic year, complete the Net Price Calculator (NPC).   You will need the Student Aid Index (SAI) received upon completion of the FAFSA along with basic income information for input into the NPC.  Be sure to include your email so we can assist with any questions you may have.
