College is one of the most important investments a family can make, but very few families are able to cover 100% of the costs of tuition and living expenses on their own. Fortunately, there are many resources available to help. The vast majority of our students rely on at least one form of financial aid, whether it’s a scholarship, grant, or loan.
We recommend that students interested in financial aid complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), and follow up with all necessary documentation within two weeks of submission. You do not need to already be accepted into NYCDA to begin this process.
The best time to apply for financial aid is concurrent with the school application process.
