How to Apply


To be considered for financial aid, students must file just two forms online: the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and the New York State Express Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application. These two forms are the only financial aid applications required for all types of aid administered by the school, by the federal program of Pell Grants and by the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP).

Federal Stafford Loans, Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and Federal Parent Loans (PLUS) require a separate loan application which may be obtained from the student’s lending institution.

Form 1
File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

File your FAFSA online. To electronically sign your FAFSA online, you must have a Personal Identification Number (PIN). You can apply for a PIN online at the same time you file your FAFSA online.

Crouse Hospital College of Nursing’s FAFSA College Code number is 006445.

Form 2
New York State Express Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)

If you’re a New York State resident, you’ll be linked from the online FAFSA to the New York TAP application. You will be prompted to get a HESCPIN (Personal Identification Number) to electronically sign your TAP application. You can also access the TAP application directly online.

Crouse Hospital College of Nursing’s TAP Code number is 0190.
