Learn what Financial Aid options are available to you. Do you need money to help with your expenses at Queens College? A number of aid programs can help.

This site will help you best understand the aid programs at Queens College, how to apply for these programs each academic year, how to avoid a variety of problems, and how to become an informed consumer.

Grants

Grants are free money, based on eligible enrollment and financial need as determined partly through the FAFSA and TAP application processes.

Work-study

Work-study is part-time work, mostly on campus, awarded based on eligible enrollment.

Scholarship

Scholarships are free money based primarily on academic merit and eligible enrollment. Many also have a financial need requirement. These are not awarded through our office. See our scholarships resource page for details.

Loans

Loan programs can be very helpful, but don’t request more than you really need. Most federal student loans are awarded based on eligible enrollment and financial need as determined through the FAFSA application process. Loans must be repaid in accordance with a variety of rules and regulations.

Tuition/Bursar

This site will explain tuition and fees cost, the billing process, payment options, refunds and frequently asked questions.
