What you should know

U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using code 009769 for any type of aid—scholarship, grant or loan. While your FAFSA can be filed anytime between January 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018 for the 2017–2018 school year, the MCNY priority filing deadlines for enrolled and new students are listed below. You may still apply after these deadlines, but certain types of funding may not be available for late applicants.

Applying for a New York State TAP Grant

Undergraduate New York residents who want to be considered for a state grant, must complete a TAP Application using school code 1099. Students who reside outside of New York may receive funds from their state scholarship programs. To apply, contact your home state agency for program requirements and application procedures.

International Students

International students may be eligible for a merit scholarship from MCNY or for a private student loan, which may require a U.S. citizen as a co-signer.

Students convicted of possession or sale of illegal drugs

A federal or state drug conviction can disqualify a student for Federal Student Aid (FSA) funds. Convictions only count if they were for an offense that occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving Title IV aid – they do not count if the offense was not during such a period. Also, any conviction that was reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record does not count, nor does one received when the student was a juvenile unless he or she was tried as an adult.

The chart below illustrates the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, depending on whether the conviction was for sale or possession and whether the student had previous offenses. (Convictions for conspiring to sell drugs count as convictions for sale of drugs.)

Possession of Illegal Drugs Sale of Illegal Drugs
1st Offense 1 year from date of conviction 2 years from date of conviction
2nd Offense 2 years from date of conviction Indefinite Period
3rd Offense Indefinite Period Indefinite Period

Self Service

As you prepare to begin your studies at MCNY, please take a moment to explore “Self-Service”, the online portal where you can find useful information. Go to the Self-Service Portal to view your financial aid awards, financial aid file status, and your billing statements and more. After logging in to Self-Service, select “Financial Aid” (to view the status of your financial aid) and/or “Billing and Payments” (to view your bill, student refund, and/or make a payment).

Has your financial situation changed? Students who have experienced a change in their financial circumstances since completing their financial aid application may file a Petition for Special Circumstances to see if additional financial assistance may be available. Please note: Not all changes in financial circumstances will result in increased financial assistance.

An accredited institution, all our programs are designed for working professionals with accelerated timetables and flexible schedules.
