What’s Next?

After you submit a FAFSA listing York College, you may receive a request from us for additional information. You should respond to that request as quickly as you can.
In order to insure that the funds available go to the students who need it the most, the U.S. Department of Education and CUNY select approximately 30 percent of all financial aid applicants for a verification process.  If you are selected you will be asked to submit copies of federal tax returns and other documents to the Financial  Office.

Your Financial Aid Award Letter

After reviewing your file, CUNY will send you a financial aid award letter, indicating the financial aid programs for which you qualify. If you are not eligible for need-based grants, you will receive a letter from the Financial Aid office, explaining other methods of financing your education.
