Applying for Financial Aid


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online at www.fafsa.gov and must be completed each academic year. The academic year begins with the summer sessions and concludes with the subsequent spring semester.

The CUNY Supplement Form must also be completed in order to be considered for the Aid for Part Time Study (APTS). The application can be obtained from CUNYfirst Student Center.

Students may file their Financial Aid application via the Web in the Medgar Evers College Financial Aid Computer Lab located in Room S-106 of the Student Support Services building. The Lab Coordinator will assist all students. Students also can apply from any computer at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Verification

After filing a Financial Aid application and receiving a response, some students may be selected for verification. When an applicant is selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education, or the College, the student may be required to document his/her household size, number of siblings in college, adjusted gross income, taxes paid, child support, SNAP and other untaxed income and benefits. A financial aid award will not be disbursed until the process is complete and the information on the application is correct. Suspected cases of fraud will be referred to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of the Inspector General.
