Financial Resources

New York State Financial Aid: HESC has allowed for COVID-19 impacted students who are adversely affected by the crisis to be held faultless for the term and has created a portal with additional financial aid information.

Federal Financial Aid:  A communication from CUNY’s Central Office was recently sent to all 2019-20 FWS students, who accepted their award and were enrolled. The communication provides guidance on job locations, working remotely, closures, and the location of the FA COVID-19 Form.  Additional guidance for thetreatment of Federal Aid can be found here.

uAspire: uAspire exists to ensure that students, families, and practitioners have the most accurate and timely information to help them navigate through issues of college affordability. uAspire Support Resource For All includes resources for students, families, and educators on key questions and procedures regarding financial aid and the impact of COVID-19 now, and in the months ahead.
