Federal Financial Aid

Federal Financial Aid is available to graduate students in the form of loans. This type of financial aid helps cover school expenses, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, and transportation. Students are required to file a FAFSA in order to be eligible for any federal aid. Once you have submitted your FAFSA and you have been accepted to Nyack your Award Letter will inform you of what you are eligible to receive.

Entrance or Exit Loan Counseling

Entrance Counseling (required of all first time borrowers)
Exit Counseling (required of all students entering repayment. i.e.-graduating seniors)
When taking out loans to pay for school, remember you are making an investment. Borrow wisely and only if absolutely necessary to pay for college related costs.
