Policy Procedures

SUNY Brockport awards financial aid based on need as determined by submission of the appropriate applications and documents. Brockport participates in both federal and state aid programs. To receive maximum consideration for all programs, an applicant must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which can be found here. The recommended filing date is February 15 for incoming students and March 15 for all others.

After the FAFSA is filed, New York state residents may follow the link or log on to this site to file their Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application.

To complete the FAFSA, SUNY Brockport encourages both the student and parent to apply for a FSA Identification Number. This will serve as an electronic signature and can be obtained here.

An institutional summer aid application required to apply for financial aid for summer sessions is available here.

A separate loan application is not required to apply for federal loans; however, a student wishing to apply for Alternative Educational loans must contact the lender directly.
