Financial Aid


The counselors and staff in the SUNY Oneonta Financial Aid Office work hard to make sure all qualified students have the opportunity to pursue a post-secondary education. A variety of forms of assistance are available to families whose resources are inadequate to meet the full cost of education.

Financial aid comes in three forms: loans, grants, and work-study programs.
