Frequently Asked Questions

Will I get the same aid package every year?

You must re-apply for financial aid every year by the deadline dates. Depending on your need for aid, your package may change. Recipients of Ithaca College awards that are not based on financial need who are not interested in any other aid are exempt from filing the FAFSA. Awards that are not need based are generally renewed as long as the specific criteria for renewal of the awards are met.

A family that experiences very little change in its financial circumstances from year to year can generally expect stable funding support from the College as long as the same number of siblings is enrolled in undergraduate education and the student continues to make satisfactory academic progress toward a degree.
