The financial aid application process may vary from college to college.  It's important to know that New Paltz uses the FAFSA but does not use a CSS Profile when determining financial need.  Here's the preferred process at New Paltz for 2015/2016 financial aid applicants! To provide the quickest and most accurate information, students should take the following three steps:

1) Financial aid applicants and their parents should electronically file their 2014 federal income tax returns two to three weeks before the 2015-2016 FAFSA is completed.

2) Wait two to three weeks to have access to the IRS Data Retrieval Tool for your 2015-2016 FAFSA on the Web.

3) Complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA on the Web at using the IRS Data Retrieval tool. The FAFSA should be filed by the college's priority deadlines (3/1/15 for summer 2015 and 3/15/15 for fall 2015).
