Applying for Aid
Apply for financial aid in five steps.
Remember, you must re-apply every year you wish you receive assistance.
Step 1: Create an FSA ID
With a unique FSA ID, you can apply for Financial Aid online. You only need to register once.
Step 2: Complete and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA on or after January 1. Touro College’s code: 010142
Because funding is limited for some aid packages, you should make every effort to file your FAFSA as early in the year as possible.
Step 3: NY Residents: Complete your Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application online. Touro College’s code: 0865
If eligible, within two weeks of submitting your FAFSA, you’ll receive an email from New York State with a link to your TAP application. Once completed, let your financial aid counselor know.
Step 4: Once your FAFSA has been processed, we will send you an award letter clarifying the types of aid for which you are eligible.
Contact us with any questions.
Step 5: If taking out a loan, you must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN).
The MPN is a legally binding agreement stating you agree to repay your loans to the Department of Education. Your financial aid counselor can provide you with one.
Receiving Your Loans
The Financial Aid office will initiate your loans and the Bursar will disperse your funds each term.
We’ll let you know of any entrance and exit tests you must take, or additional eligibility requirements.
