How to Apply for Financial Aid

How to Apply for Financial Aid

This information is not applicable to international students.


Step 1: Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA)


You must complete the FAFSA online to qualify for any loans, grants or Federal Work Study. It is very important you choose NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (code E00546) during the application process. Without the correct school code we will not receive your results and will be unable to process any grants or loans.


Step 2: Complete the following:


  • Title VII Supplemental Data Request form
  • Student Loan Entrance Interview. Our school is listed as “NY Coll of Osteo Med @ NYIT”.
  • If applying for a grant, you must submit documentation of your parents’ 2016, 2017, and 2018 income and your 2018 income.
  • Additional information upon the request of NYITCOM Office of Financial Aid

Step 3: Apply for Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans


All new students requesting to borrow a federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan to help finance their education MUST complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) at studentaid.gov. Failure to complete a new MPN will result in a delay of your credit balance. The school will not issue any emergency funds. If you have any questions regarding the loan process, email doloans@nyit.edu.


Step 4: Apply for Federal Work-Study (if interested)


If you interested in the Federal Work-Study program, please speak with someone in the Office of Financial Aid.


Step 5: Receive your award letter


After receipt of the FAFSA results and other required forms and documentation, we will process your financial aid and send an award letter with your Direct Unsubsidized Loan only. At that point, you’ll be given instructions on how to apply for a Grad PLUS Loan if you wish to borrow one.


Step 6: New students must set up CREDIT BALANCE preferences


Shortly before classes begin, you will receive a bright green envelope containing a instructions on how to select your refund preference with BankMobile (the surplus of financial aid and loans after your tuition charges have been paid).
