What happens next?

Once the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is processed, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) or a Correction FAFSA. If corrections are needed, follow the instructions carefully and provide any missing or inaccurate information. If requested, take your SAR to our office.

After you submit or send back the Express TAP Application (ETA), you will get a TAP/State Scholarship Award Notice (or TAP Award Letter). If additional information is needed to process your TAP award, you will receive a Request for information from the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC). Be sure to provide the information by the date indicated.

Our Office of Financial Aid will send you an Award Letter, detailing the aid you are eligible to receive based on your applications. Accept or decline the offer of aid by replying by the deadline date. Supply any additional documents requested.
