Financial Assistance Programs
The college has access to a limited amount of funds available for extraordinary or emergency situations that students might face which could impact their ability to stay in school.
What should students do when facing an expected financial emergency?
Student Financial Services
Students should first check with Student Financial Services to ensure they have completed all financial aid processes and received all aid they are eligible for.
- Student Financial Services in located on the first floor of the Student Services building, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 914-251-7000, press 2.
- Be sure to discuss ways to reduce your semester costs with a Student Financial Services representative also.
Students who may require some assistance with funds for transportation to academic internships may apply a travel grant (PDF).

Make an Impact Award
Students facing unexpected financial hardship who cannot cover the cost of tuition and on-campus room and board (expenses billed directly by the college) for the current semester should review the guidelines for the Make an Impact Award.
Please note that this award provides one-time assistance and is not a solution of ongoing financial needs.
HEERF Student Aid Funds
The Federal Government established the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Stability Act (CARES) on March 27, 2020, a portion of which, Student Aid Funds, is to be used to provide emergency assistance to students.
Supplemental funds were later authorized through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA)/(HEERF II) and the American Rescue Plan (ARP)/(HEERF III) to continue support for institutions of higher education to serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
