The goal of The Office of Financial Aid at SPH is to provide students with the financial resources and information they need to successfully complete their study.

Students receiving Financial Aid will be able to view all of their information in their CUNYfirst account. CUNYfirst announcements are sent to you via your SPH email address, so be sure to check your SPH email often for updates about your financial aid.


Need to know:

Time to file your 2017-2018 FAFSA!

For the 2017-2018 year and beyond, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available on October 1. In the past, the FAFSA opened on January 1 and the FAFSA used the previous year’s tax data. Now, students will file the FAFSA using tax information from two years prior using income information imported electronically from the IRS, using their Data Retrieval Tool (DRT).

Important Notice: International, Advanced Certificate, and Non Degree students are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid including Federal Direct Loans.
