Office of Financial Aid

St. Francis College knows that the rising cost of tuition can be a burden on students and their families and that’s why we are freezing tuition for the Fall 2018-19 academic year.

SFC offers a comprehensive financial aid program that mixes institutional scholarships and student employment with federal grants and loans, as well as state grants . To be considered for any financial assistance, students are required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each school year. The FAFSA may be completed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov beginning October 1 for the following academic year. For example, students who plan to enroll for September 2019 may begin the financial aid process on October 1, 2018.

Who Should Apply for Financial Aid?

Everyone! Even if you think you do not qualify, you should apply. You may even receive a small grant which can help defray some of your costs and the application is free!

St. Francis College requires you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to receive federal and institutional aid. New York State residents must also complete a separate application for New York State TAP.

    Financial Aid Process

    Step 1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

    Complete all required documentation at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. The college code is 002820

    Step 2. Complete the online TAP application
    If you are a New York State resident, you will be linked from the online FAFSA to the New York TAP application or you can access the application online at http://www.tapweb.org/. The college TAP code is 0715.

    Step 3. Watch for your Student Aid Report (SAR)
    If you provided an email address on your FAFSA, your SAR will be sent electronically within five days. Without an email address, a paper SAR will be mailed to you. Review the results for accuracy and make any corrections at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. If you provided the above codes on your FAFSA, your application will be electronically sent to the SFC Office for Student Financial Services for review.

    Step 4. Look for material sent to you by the Office for Student Financial Services
    Complete all forms and provide all information requested of you by the college.

    Step 5. Complete Direct Loan process (Skip if you do not plan to use loans for school)
    If you plan to take out loans and have indicated so on your award letter, go to http://www.studentloans.gov/. Students must complete entrance counseling and an e-MPN for Direct subsidized/unsubsidized loans. Parents must complete a credit check and an e-MPN in order to borrow a PLUS.
