Graduate Aid

Dowling College awards most of its financial assistance to graduate students based on financial need, as assessed by means of the federally approved needs analysis known as the Federal Methodology. The Federal Methodology needs analysis assists colleges, universities and other agencies in determining a student’s need for financial assistance.
Entering graduate students seeking financial assistance from any federal or institutional source of funding (including student loans) are required to submit a copy of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the Federal Processing Center designating Dowling College, federal institution code number 002667, as one of the recipients. When the FAFSA is processed, the student will receive a federal Student Aid Report (SAR).

The Financial Aid Department encourages all students to file their FAFSA on an annual basis by March 1st.
