There are limited merit scholarships available for transfer students. If eligible, this will be indicated in your financial aid award letter. You do not need to apply for consideration of merit scholarships.
Fordham offers need-based financial aid to qualified U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens. In order to qualify, applicants must submit all forms below by the financial aid deadline. Applications for financial aid received after the posted deadline will be considered for aid after those filed by the deadline.
- Federal Aid Application: To be considered for federal aid you must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). When your Student Aid Report (SAR) is received, confirm that all information is correct and that Fordham University is listed. If corrections are needed use "Corrections on the Web."
- Institutional Aid Applications: To be considered for institutional aid you must file both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the College Scholarship Services "CSS PROFILE" form.
- State Aid Application: New York State Residents must file a New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) Application. The student will receive an award certificate from NYSHESC. Fordham University must be listed on the award certificate. If Fordham University is not listed on the certificate, a TAP Change Form must be completed.
