Application Procedures

The City University of New York uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application is available online at: www.fafsa.gov. The John Jay Federal ID number (002693) is needed to complete the application and ensure that all information is sent to John Jay electronically. New York State residents must click on the FAFSA confirmation page to link them to the TAP application online. Paper applications are not mailed to students.

Applications for financial aid must be filed each year. Students will receive a reply when their application is processed. If there is a problem with inconsistent or insufficient data, Social Security number, citizenship, Immigration and Naturalization status, or Selective Service status, the student will be notified by a separate letter and must go to Jay Express Services to make any adjustments. If a student is selected for a process called verification, a letter or an e-mail will also be sent and proof of income must be furnished and a verification sheet must be completed. In most instances, a signed copy of the student’s previous year’s Federal Income Tax Return Transcript (obtained from the IRS) is sufficient to complete the verification process.
