The Office of Financial Services

The Office of Financial Services is committed to helping students complete the financial aid process and get the money they need to attend college. We provide information and counseling to all students regarding the various financial aid programs (grants, loans, and work-study) offered by the federal government and New York State, along with information on various scholarship opportunities.

The office is providing services to students via e-mail, telephone, and online zoom appointments, with limited in-person service at our Front Desk. In addition, we have Financial Aid TV which provides short videos covering various financial aid topics. We recommend that you continue to work with us remotely - it's convenient and easy!

All visitors to campus are required to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test no more than seven days prior to coming to campus. Masks are required for in-person services.
