SUNY Oneonta attempts to provide funding for as many students as funding levels permit. Consequently, awards are made according to financial need regardless of class year, major, or other distinctive features. New students must be accepted as a matriculated student and provided official FAFSA data before they will be considered for financial aid. A step-by-step application process can be found at www.financialaid.oneonta.edu.
To be considered for financial aid, students must annually file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the processing agency at www.fafsa.gov. Students must list SUNY Oneonta with the appropriate code (002847) on the FAFSA to have the processing agency release the data to the college. Students should do this no earlier than January 1 but before March 1 of the award year. To be considered for many institutional scholarships the processed FAFSA must be received no later than March 15 of the award year. Other Financial Aid Awards are made on a first come, first served basis.
In developing the financial aid package, the College will first consider all resources the student has or can be reasonably expected to have. These resources include, but are not limited to, parental contribution, student employment contribution, student asset contributions, private scholarships, assistantships, Federal PELL Grants, State grants, and scholarships.
Once an award has been determined, the College will send an eAward notice to each financial aid recipient. If a student has questions, please ask your financial aid counselor indicated on the eAward notice.
The College reserves the right to revise awards if the student receives subsequent additional resources. A revised eAward notice supersedes all previous notices.
