Q: Is the student guaranteed financial aid for the four years they are in college? How do we go about receiving financial aid?


Students are not guaranteed financial aid for all four years, however they are encouraged to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) each year to be considered for loans, work study and scholarships.  Students are automatically reviewed academically for scholarships upon applying to Purchase. Keep in mind in order to be eligible for scholarships students must fill out the FAFSA form.  It is required that you complete the FAFSA each year to receive aid.
