The Direct Loan Application Process: Step 1 Filing the FAFSA
Each student who wishes to apply for a William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan at the City University of New York (CUNY) must first file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (. When submitting your FAFSA, please be sure to include Hunter College (Federal Code #002689) in the list of schools you'd like to receive your FAFSA information. )
Please note that some students who file a FAFSA will have their application selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education. These individuals must provide copies of income documentation and household information to the Office of Financial Aid, North 241. Some students who file a FAFSA may also have their application selected for review by Hunter's Financial Aid Office if the application information seems incorrect or inconsistent. These individuals must review and correct their application information before they can submit the Direct Loan request.
