Financial Aid and Scholarships

All matriculated students taking 6 or more credits per semester may apply for financial aid. Financial aid consists of tuition and housing scholarships, loans, stipends, or some combination of these types of aid.

New York State residents are required to apply to the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). Students pursuing only the diploma of hazzan are not eligible for TAP.

Applications and further information are available from the Office of Student Financial Aid.
