The following procedures and information are offered to help you with this process.
Getting Started with Financial Aid
All students interested in receiving financial aid must annually complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The application becomes available on January 1 prior to the fall semester that you will be attending. You apply once every academic year (fall, spring, summer or summer, fall, spring depending on your college). SUNY Sullivan’s federal school code is 002879.
If you are a New York State resident attending a college located in New York you should also apply for TAP at www.hesc.ny.gov.

SUNY Sullivan’s Presidential Scholars program makes a college education more accessible and more affordable for high-achieving students graduating from Sullivan County high schools.
Students with a minimum overall grade average of 90 are eligible to receive the scholarship. The Presidential Scholars program, first introduced in 2012, funds up to full tuition and fees for two years at SUNY Sullivan.
Recipients must be in the graduating class preceding the start of their first fall semester of study and plan to attend the college full time.
The Presidential Scholars program awards a maximum continuous two-year scholarship for the fall and spring semesters. No gaps in study are permitted, and qualifying students must apply for financial aid to be considered for the award. Continuation as a Presidential Scholar is based upon the achievement of an overall 3.25 GPA for the first year of study.
There are many scholarships available based on a variety of different needs and merits. See what you might qualify for using one of the following tools:
