The Excelsior Scholarship application for the Spring 2018 is scheduled to open Monday, October 30th at hesc.ny.gov/excelsior.
The Spring application is open for students who are first entering college in the Spring 2018 term, students who caught up on credits during Fall 2017 to meet credit requirements, and current college students who missed the deadline for Fall 2017.
The 2018/2019 FAFSA is now available! Prospective and current students can now complete the application with 2016 tax documentation or using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
In order to enhance our security efforts, our office is no longer accepting documentation as an e-mail attachment. We can accept documentation via paper mail, fax, SOLAR Upload, or in person. We recommend using the "Upload Document" feature in your SOLAR To Do List (when available) for secure and faster processing.
