Financial aid comes from a variety of sources. Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after Jan. 1 as possible for each academic year in which they want to receive federal Title IV financial aid. The FAFSA can be completed online at www.fafsa.gov. Once the form is submitted, students can print a confirmation page as receipt of the application. While on the FAFSA confirmation page, New York State residents who plan to enroll full time can apply for “TAP on the Web.” TAP can also be applied for online at www.tapweb.org. Alfred State’s school codes for financial aid are:
002854 for the FAFSA
3005 for TAP associate degree programs
6005 for TAP baccalaureate degree programs
