2017 - 2018 FAFSA Verification Forms

Approximately 30% of all FAFSA filers are selected for a process called verification. Students selected are required to submit documentation to the Financial Aid Office before their financial aid can be processed. If you are selected for verification, SUNY Delhi will email you, at the email address you were assigned when you were accepted, indicating which verification worksheet you need to complete and submit to us. We may also send requests for other important documentation to that email address, so check it often. We will begin notifying Fall 2017 financial aid applicants the end of February.

New York State Residence Review Questionnaire - Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) may request this form from you, the student. If requested, you must complete the form and forward it to HESC at the address listed on the form, before your NYS Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application can be processed.

APTS - Matriculated New York state residents attending less than full time may apply to be considered for Aid for Part-Time Study (APTS). In addition to the application, students need to also submit a signed copy of their most recent NYS income tax return. Funding is limited and not all applicants qualify.

2017 - 2018 Special Circumstance Requests

  • The student must submit a brief letter or note explaining the circumstance.
  • A financial aid counselor will review your request and make a determination.
  • Additional documentation may be needed and will be requested once the letter has been reviewed.

Academic Pursuit and Progress - Students receiving financial aid must meet a standard of academic progress (SAP) to continue receiving financial aid. Eligibility for continued receipt of both federal and state financial aid is evaluated at the end of each semester. The New York State Programs (including TAP) have separate and distinct academic progress rules from the federal programs.

New York State Grants

Students who receive TAP are expected to make progress toward their degree and maintain a certain grade point average to remain eligible for TAP in a subsequent semester.

The criteria is based on program level and when you received your first TAP award. The NYS rules are applicable only to the NYS programs, and should not be confused with the Academic Progress Standard for Federal Financial Aid Eligibility.

Students who fail to meet the standards for TAP SAP may request a one-time written appeal based on mitigating circumstances. A mitigating circumstance is an exceptional or unusual event(s) beyond the student's direct control, which contributed to or caused the academic difficulty. Copies of supporting documentation should also be submitted.

The request should include:

Completed, signed REQUEST OF FINANCIAL AID ACADEMIC PROGRESS waiver form

A letter that includes a complete description of the circumstances, how the circumstances have changed, and an explanation of how you plan to improve your academic performance

Copies of supporting documentation

Additional documentation may be needed and will be requested once the letter has been reviewed.

Federal Financial Aid Programs

Standards of Academic Progress (SAP) for federal financial aid programs apply to students receiving Federal Title IV financial aid. Federal Pell Grants, Direct Stafford Loans, and Direct PLUS Loans are Federal Title IV financial aid. 

Students who fail to meet the standards will be placed on Financial Aid Warning status for one semester. Students are expected to improve their standing by the end of the warning semester.

If the student has not returned to good standing (according to the Standard) by the end of the Financial Aid Warning semester, the student will lose eligibility for federal student aid from that point forward.

Students who lose eligibility may submit a written request to appeal the decision based on mitigating circumstances.

The request should include:

Completed, signed REQUEST OF FINANCIAL AID ACADEMIC PROGRESS waiver form

A letter that includes a complete description of the circumstances, how the circumstances have changed, and an explanation of how you plan to improve your academic performance

Copies of supporting documentation

Additional documentation may be needed and will be requested once the letter has been reviewed.

Mitigating circumstances for federal aid and waiver requests for state aid may be submitted using a common form, letter and documentation as appropriate. The letter should clearly indicate that the request is for both federal and state financial aid.

Financial Aid Steps

Get a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID for yourself and one for a parent at http://www.pin.ed.gov/. These IDs are the first step to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

  • Keep them in a safe place. You’ll need them throughout the financial aid process
  • You have to file for FAFSA each year that you are enrolled, and you will use the same FSA IDs each time.
  • How to apply for a FSA ID

File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using that FSA ID. The FAFSA serves as the basis for most financial aid available at SUNY Delhi. We recommend you file as soon as possible after January 1.

When prompted, list SUNY Delhi on your FAFSA using the federal school code 002857.

To qualify for campus-based student aid (aid that’s awarded from limited pools of funding at SUNY Delhi each year), we recommend filing by Feb. 15. Applications filed after that will still be processed, but your chances of receiving all possible campus-based funds may be diminished.

Start here: http://fafsa.ed.gov

For a little extra guidance, watch this video: “7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA”

NOTE: About one-third of FAFSA applications are selected for verification. That will mean submitting some extra documents, which SUNY Delhi will request. 

Filing the FAFSA online is recommended and speeds the aid process. But if you want, you can request a paper application by calling 1-800-4FEDAID. We do not have paper applications at SUNY Delhi.

Apply for state aid.

If you’re a New York State resident, you can apply for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) at https://www.tapweb.org after you’ve filed your FAFSA. This should be done within two to three days of filing the FAFSA, if not immediately afterward. You’ll see a link to the TAP application on the FAFSA submission confirmation page.

You’ll need one of the following SUNY Delhi TAP codes:

  • 3020 for certificate and associate degree programs
  • 6020 for bachelor degree programs

Once your application has been processed you’ll receive a TAP/State Scholarship Award Notice. If additional information is needed to process your TAP award, you’ll receive a Request for Information from the NYS Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC). Be sure to respond to this request immediately to avoid processing delays.

See what financial aid you qualify for.

  • Activate your SUNY Delhi email account.
  • Make sure you have your student 800 number (or Social Security number) and student PIN at the ready. You should have received both in your acceptance letter.
  • You’ll receive instructions via email for how to access your FAFSA Award Notification, which tells you what you’ve qualified for, within two days of filing your FAFSA. BroncoWeb allows you to review, accept, decline and adjust your SUNY Delhi financial aid award package. You do not have to simply accept all of what is offered to you. Learn more about accepting or declining your award.
  • Check this email regularly, as the Financial Aid Office will use it to follow up on applications, send forms and request additional documents. It’s important that you reply promptly. You don’t want to miss out on financial aid opportunities because you forgot to check your email.
  • You can also check the status of your TAP awards at http://hesc.ny.gov.

Your financial aid depends on maintaining certain academic standards. Know what’s expected of you and keep track of your progress to avoid falling behind and risking your financial advantage.
