Applying for Aid

Our financial aid deadlines vary based on what time of year you start classes, so we encourage you to check in with our student financial services advisor regarding your timeline. If you have started working with one of our enrollment advisors and/or have started to complete the admission process, now is the time to begin the process of applying for financial aid.

U.S. Residents:

Complete your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

  • FAFSA web site
  • Houghton’s FAFSA school code is 002734
  • Once you have completed your FAFSA, Houghton can begin to put together a financial aid package for you. Until this step is completed, it is difficult for us to determine what your financial aid package might look like.

NY State Residents:

Complete the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application

  • www.hesc.ny.gov
  • Houghton's NYSHESC school code is 0305
  • Upon completion of your FAFSA, you may be able to click on a direct link to the TAP application, but not always. [TF1] Use the above link if you are not given this option.
