Updates from the Financial Aid office

Kristina Delbridge, director of financial aid, Financial Aid Office

July 7, 2014

If you will be attending for the 2014 Fall 1 term or beyond and plan to use financial aid, we encourage you to complete the 2014-2015 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Aid) if you haven’t already. This can be found online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Keep in mind that other applications for aid, such as the NY State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application or the Aid for Part-Time Studies (APTS) application, also are required for undergraduate students planning to use New York State aid.

A complete list of the financial aid programs is available on our website http://www.esc.edu/financial-aid/. Of particular interest may be the brochures accessible from the Financial Aid Introduction and FAQ section or the videos which offer a general overview of the financial aid application process.

Once we receive the results of the FAFSA and determine aid, please remember that, while aid is initially determined based upon a full time fall/spring enrollment, students attending for the Summer 1 or 2 term and/or attending less than full time still may qualify for aid. Our office will automatically adjust aid based upon the enrollment you choose.

Summer aid generally takes about 5-7 business days from the time you have registered to be reflected on your account unless you have notified our office ahead of time. (Email is a great way to do this.) We encourage you to view your Account Summary on MyESC for the most up to date information regarding your aid eligibility as a full time award will automatically be adjusted within the Account Summary.

We hope that this article was helpful. If you have questions or concerns, please contact our office at financialaid@esc.edu.
