Campus-based Programs Application and Deadline Information
Each student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or the Renewal Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
Students applying for Federal Work Study should indicate on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid their desire for work study. FSEOG is awarded to eligible students based upon the college's FSEOG federal allocation, which is based upon student's contribution. At Empire State College, students must have a federally calculated zero expected family contribution to be eligible for FSEOG. Student also must be a Pell Grant recipient.
Since funding for campus-based awards is limited, applications should be received by the Financial Aid office by April 1 of the award year. Due to limited funding, not all eligible applicants will receive an award. In order to make a late disbursement, FSEOG must have been awarded while the student was eligible.
