Welcome to the Office of Student Financial Aid

The mission of the Office of Student Financial Aid of the College of Staten Island is to increase opportunities for students' access and success in higher education by helping students and their families seek, obtain, and make the best use of public and private financial assistance programs for post-secondary education. The Office aims to generate delivery of aid funds to students most expeditiously while complying with all applicable rules, regulations and procedures of funding entities, CUNY, and the College.
