How to Apply for Financial Aid

1) Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

You must complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov to qualify for any loans, grants or Federal Work-Study.  It is very important you choose NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (code E00546) during the application process.  Without the correct school code we will not receive your results and will be unable to process any grants or loans.


2) Complete the following forms

In addition to the FAFSA all students must submit the following:

All students (including first-year students)

  • Title VII Supplemental Data Request form – online at  www.nyit.edu/medicine/financialaid/forms/
  • Student Loan Entrance Interview – online at www.studentloans.gov. Our school is listed as “NY Coll of Osteo Med @ NYIT”.
  • If applying for a grant, you must submit documentation of your parents’ 2011, 2012, and 2013 income and your 2013 income.
  • Additional information at the request of the financial aid office


3)
Apply for Loans

Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans 

All new students requesting to borrow a federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan to help finance their education MUST complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) at https://StudentLoans.gov. Our school is listed as “NY Coll of Osteo Med @ NYIT”.
 
Failure to complete a new MPN will result in a delay of your refund.   The school will not issue any emergency funds. 
 
If you have any questions regarding the loan process, please e-mail doloans@nyit.edu
 
Federal Perkins Loan
Unfortunately, there is very limited funding for the 2014-2015 academic year. 


4) 
Apply for Federal Work Study (if interested)

If you interested in the Federal Work-Study program, please speak with someone in the Office of Financial Aid. 


5)  
Receive your award letter

After receipt of the FAFSA results and other required forms and documentation, the Office of Financial Aid will process your financial aid and send an award letter with your Direct Unsubsidized Loan only. At that point, you’ll be given instructions on how to apply for a Grad PLUS Loan if you wish to borrow one.
