Program Overview

More than 25% of Hunter students attend Hunter College on a part-time basis. Many part-time students share a common challenge — maintaining a successful balance between college studies, family obligations and work schedule. Most part-time Hunter students are unable to attend college full-time due to these commitments or limited financial resources. Despite these challenges, many part-time Hunter students maintain strong academic records while managing a myriad of personal responsibilities.

In order to address the needs of part-time students, and acknowledge both their accomplishments and challenges, Hunter has established the Beatrice and Raymond Liebesman Completion Fund, also known as the Part-Time Student Completion Award. The primary goal of this award is to provide financial, academic, and personal support services to part-time students who are experiencing the situation described above, who also meet the criteria below.


  • Current part-time students (11 ½ credits or less)*, who have also attended on a part-time basis during the prior semester/s.
  • Commitment to register for an additional class needed for degree completion if financial support is awarded
  • Matriculated status, including BA/MA students
  • Completed at least 60 credits toward first undergraduate degree. Second undergraduate degrees and graduate degrees are ineligible.
  • Declared major
  • Cumulative Hunter College GPA of 3.0 or greater
  • Fully-completed electronic (online) FAFSA and demonstrated need, as defined by Financial Aid/Scholarships
  • Award candidates must attend a one-on-one meeting with the Program Coordinator
  • U.S. citizens or documented international students**
  • New York State residency. Applies to students who would take more than 11.5 credits per semester; program will pay up to NY State rate for eligible additional classes.
  • Demonstrated other signs of academic success

Award recipients are expected to write a brief thank you note to the donor at the beginning of each semester.

→  * For this program, part-time enrollment is defined as taking fewer than 11.5 credits.

→  ** Undocumented students and international students who are unable to complete a current FAFSA are ineligible.
