CUNY Financial aid Calculator
The CUNY website has a Financial Aid Estimator to calculate the financial aid awards you may receive if you attend CUNY. It will let you see the cost of attending CUNY as well as the amount of financial aid available to you to meet these costs. This information can help you compare costs at CUNY to those of other institutions so that you can determine which colleges are most affordable for you.
In order for CUNY to give you a financial aid estimate, we will ask you to supply your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is found on your Student Aid Report (SAR). You received this when you filed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you have not yet completed and submitted your FAFSA, you may do so by going to www.fafsa.gov.
When you receive your SAR with your EFC, please return to this site to obtain your CUNY financial aid estimate. To access the Financial Aid Estimator, click here or go to the financial aid home page www.cuny.edu/financialaid and click on the Financial Aid Estimator link on the right.
FAFSA4caster is an online tool to help you and your family prepare financially for college before officially applying for federal student aid. It provides an estimate of federal student aid eligibility by calculating an estimated Expected Family Contribution – the indicator used to estimate your family’s or a student’s financial strength. FAFSA4caster determines what type of federal aid (grants, loans) the student is eligible to receive and provides an estimate award amount.
