SEEK Financial Aid Information

To receive both Federal and State financial aid as a CUNY SPS SEEK student, you must complete two forms: the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and, if you or your parents are New York State residents and you are a full-time student (12 credits or more), the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application.

Both forms can be completed online. The FAFSA is available at If you have questions while completing the FAFSA form you may contact the FAFSA help line at (800) 433-3243. You should be directed to the TAP application after completing the online FAFSA if you are a NY resident. For additional TAP information visit

We urge you to apply for financial aid for each upcoming academic year before the deadline of April 15.
