Types of Financial Aid
We can do this together.
Every student is different. So is every financial aid offer. Once you complete your financial aid application, we’ll consider all the factors affecting your finances - your family’s income, how much you’ve saved, how many of your siblings are also going to college, and more - and determine how much your family is expected to contribute toward your education. If information you provided in your financial aid application has changed due to a special and/or unusual circumstance, you may contact our office to request an adjustment. Please be prepared to provide documentation that supports your request.
The amount you’ll receive can come from several different sources, including:
- Fordham aid, which includes grants and scholarships
- Federal and state grants
- Work-study jobs
- Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans
More than 96 percent of incoming first years received some form of financial aid to help defray the cost of attending Fordham.
