Applying for Aid

New York State financial aid applicants planning to attend college full time during 2019-20 may want to apply for the Excelsior Scholarship Application at hesc.ny.gov.
The Excelsior Scholarship, in combination with other student financial aid programs, allows students to attend Suffolk County Community College tuition-free.
Apply NOW;
do not delay, as there will be a deadline published shortly.

To receive full consideration for all financial aid programs, we urge you to apply by April 15 for the fall semester and by November 15 if you are entering in the spring semester. For all the major financial aid programs, including PELL, SEOG, TAP, APTS, loans, etc. Follow these steps to apply:

  1. All aid applicants must be matriculated in a degree or certificate program. Only courses that are required for your degree program are eligible for financial aid.
  2. You and your parent must obtain a FSA ID and password. The FSA ID serves as a legal signature and should not be shared with anyone. 

    If you are creating a FSA ID for the first time, your FSA ID is considered conditional until your information is verified with the Social Security Administration. You may use your conditional FSA ID to sign an original FAFSA, but nothing else. Once your information is verified with Social Security Administration you will be able to use your FSA ID to fully access your financial aid information. Access FSA ID now and get started applying.
  3. Complete the FAFSA:
    File electronically at FAFSA on the Web. Each campus has a Computer Lab where assistance is available. Note that our Title IV School Codes are:
    • 002878 - Ammerman Campus
    • 014153 - Eastern Campus
    • 013204 - Grant Campus
  4. If you are requesting a loan and you are a first time borrower at Suffolk County Community College, you must complete an Entrance Interview either by using online loan counseling at studentloans.gov or in person at your campus Financial Aid Office.
  5. After you submit FAFSA, apply for the New York State TAP grant by clicking on State Aid Link on the confirmation page.
  6. To apply for a NYS Aid for Part-Time Study (APTS) award, you must complete an APTS Application in addition to the FAFSA. Return the application and a signed copy of your NY State Tax Return to your campus Financial Aid Office. If you are a dependent, please also include your parent's return.
