Official award notices get sent via email. We send notices to your New Paltz email, FAFSA email and personal email addresses.

→If you accept a Direct Student Loan then you must complete the following before school starts (if you have completed this last year then you do not have to do it again).  Login to studentloans.gov with your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID/password and then-

  1. Complete Entrance Counseling for State University College - New Paltz
  2. Complete a Master Promissory Note for subsidized/unsubsidized loan

After you've registered for classes Student Accounts will email you a notification that your invoice (bill) is available. Any aid you accepted will show as a deferral on your invoice.

If you need summer loans (6 credits or more) make sure to submit our summer aid application after you've registered for those classes.

If you will not be full-time then you must submit a part-time enrollment form to the Financial Aid Office. Part-time students’ aid will not show up as a deferral on the invoice unless you submit this form!

Login to my.newpaltz and accept the charges on your invoice per the email from Student Accounts. You are responsible to pay any balance due by the due date on your individual invoice.

Loans begin disbursing during the 2nd week of classes. Any excess aid you have accepted that's above the cost of your invoice will be issued as a refund.
