Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid at Hunter College

A college degree maximizes your chances of being successful. Knowing how to invest in your education can be challenging. Sometimes the toughest part of investing in your education is starting the financial aid process. Many families mistakenly think they don’t qualify for aid and prevent themselves from receiving financial aid by failing to apply for it. You can apply for financial aid any time after January 1, prior to the academic year you plan to attend; however, you must be admitted and enrolled at Hunter College to actually receive funds.·You and your family have a number of financial aid opportunities to take advantage of; you just need to know where to begin. Use the information below to help you get started and learn more about your financial aid options.
