Consider Your Financial Aid Options
We’re here to help you find out how much you can expect to pay for your education and craft the best financial aid package possible.
Below, explore just a few of your options for financing your education.
Your first step is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) using Queens’ FAFSA code: 002957. This free application will determine if you’re eligible for need-based grants, scholarships, and student-loan programs.
We appreciate the immense value of experience gained through serving your country. As a degree-granting Yellow Ribbon Institution, we offer a variety of benefits to our active-service and veteran military students, as well as their spouses and dependents.
We recommend applying for merit-, need-, and talent-based scholarships and grants, including those offered by businesses, civic groups, foundations, churches, and more.
If you’re a Queens alum, you may be eligible for a tuition discount in our online graduate programs. Speak with a program manager for more information.
