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).
The college also has some limited funding to assist with textbooks.

The 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.
Petrie Emergency Grant
Students facing unexpected financial hardship who cannot cover the cost of some short-term needs (not including tuition and on-campus room and board) should review the guidelines for the Petrie Emergency Grant.
A Petrie Emergency Grant is a one-time grant for emergency situations. Review the guidelines for the Petrie Emergency Grant to see if this may an option.
Students facing a COVID-related financial emergency or who are having difficulty paying their semester bill as a result of the pandemic should apply for CARES Act funding (see information below).
CARES Act Emergency Financial Aid Grants
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides emergency funds “for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare).”
Once we learn more about the CARES funding we will send an email to students with additional information specific to this funding.
