Financial Aid: Application Procedure


The fastest and easiest way to apply for financial aid is by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. FAFSA on the Web is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Before beginning the application we encourage you to first fill out the FAFSA Worksheet.

The worksheet does NOT need to be submitted. When the student completes the FAFSA, Hunter College should be included among the colleges to which the application information is reported (HUNTER COLLEGE FEDERAL SCHOOL CODE: 002689). When the FAFSA is processed, CUNY will receive an electronic record of the student’s application information. The student may be required to provide additional documentation to the Office of Financial Aid to verify the application information or to clarify any discrepancies found in the application.

Students who are New York State residents can apply for both federal and New York State aid using a single online session. After completing FAFSA on the Web, New York residents are able to link to the TAP on the Web Form, which is pre-filled with their FAFSA data.

In order to request a Federal Direct Loan at Hunter College, the student must first complete the FAFSA and a Direct Loan Request on the Hunter College Financial Aid Office website at www.hunter.cuny.edu/finaid.
