Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Financial Aid is based on your financial need. Financial aid comes in the form of grants, loans and work-study. The first step to receiving financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available starting October 1 each year, and new students should submit their FAFSA no later than March 1 so that we can send you your financial aid award letter around April 1. Ramapo’s School Code for the FAFSA is 009344.  Please visit the link below.
