APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Cayuga’s school code is 002861. You can submit your FAFSA anytime after January 1 for the upcoming academic year. If the College receives your processed FAFSA and all additional requirements are satisfied by June 1, additional scholarships, grants, and work-study may be available in addition to Pell, TAP and loans.
New York State residents enrolling full-time may also be eligible for state aid. The FAFSA will direct you to the online Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application. Cayuga’s TAP code is 2005.
New York State residents enrolling part-time may also be eligible for state aid. Apply for Aid for Part-Time Study (APTS) by July 1 for Fall and November 15 for Spring. Use the APTS Application. Following those dates, applications will be considered if funds are available.
If you did not complete a TAP application as part of your online FAFSA, wait until you receive your FAFSA acknowledgment, then apply for TAP directly through Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC). Cayuga’s TAP code is 2005.
REAPPLY EACH YEAR
You must reapply for financial aid each academic year. Refer to “Submit FAFSA” above.
