After you are accepted and have a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file, the Financial Aid Office will send a SUNY Award Letter detailing the aid you are eligible to receive based on program eligibility requirements. Students must accept, revise or decline award(s) by the prescribed deadline date. Failure to accept aid by the deadline date may result in the loss of some types of financial aid.
The Financial Aid Office will send a hard copy SUNY Award Letter to all new students (freshmen, transfer and graduate). Continuing students will receive an e-mail notification directing them to view their award package online in Banner. All students are given the opportunity to accept as is, reduce or decline any award offered via Banner. Some aid programs require additional steps to complete the application process.
All students are responsible for monitoring their campus e-mail and their financial aid status on-line by accessing Banner.
