Applying for a FSA ID
Before you apply for federal student aid via the FAFSA Application, ensure that you have applied for and received a Federal FSA ID. An FSA ID is required for all students and additionally for at least one parent if you are a dependent student. An FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid's online systems such as the FAFSA application and can serve as your legal signature, so make sure that you safeguard this important information.
Applying for Financial Aid
Priority deadline to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 2016–17 for the Brooklyn College Office of Financial Aid was May 1, 2016.
All students should apply for financial aid every year. Students who missed the financial aid priority deadline are still encouraged to file the FAFSA and will be considered for federal student aid, if eligible, but institutional funds become increasingly limited and there is no guarantee that it will be available on your account by the time the bursar bill becomes due.
Apply for a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is free, so be on your guard when searching for the FAFSA application: Filers should make sure that they use only the official Department of Education site.
If you need help using the IRS data retrieval tool in order to automatically import income information to your FAFSA application, click here.
After submitting your FAFSA, you will be taken to the FAFSA Confirmation Page. Look for "Optional Feature — Start your state application" on the Confirmation page to go to TAP on the Web. Here you will be able to apply for New York State tuition assistance programs for full- and part-time students. If you do not complete the TAP on the Web application after completing the FAFSA, you will be sent an e-mail with a link to that application after your FAFSA is processed. You will receive a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) by e-mail within three to five days of filing your FAFSA. Check your SAR for accuracy. If you find errors on your report or you have been selected for verification, follow the directions on your SAR to make corrections. Also, report any errors or submit any verification documents to the Office of Financial Aid.
