State and federal financial aid

Federal Pell Grant:

The Federal Pell Grant is an entitlement to students who qualify under a federal formula which determines eligibility. To be eligible, a student must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and must not have earned a bachelor’s degree. This award is a grant, not a loan.

New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP):

New York State's Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is a state-funded program for New York state residents. A recipient of this award must be a full-time matriculated student in an approved program at an approved New York state post-secondary institution. Grants are based on the New York net taxable income of the preceding year. This program is an entitlement program.  Christian Formation majors are ineligible for TAP unless they declare a second major.
