New York Film Academy Financial Aid

How to Apply

Register for a Federal Student Aid Identification (FSA ID) and password with the U.S. Dept. of Education At The New York Film Academy, we try to keep the financial aid application process as simple as possible. Yet, it is still a process that generates many questions on the part of prospective students and their families. The steps below will take you through the "typical" application process. Be sure to contact staff in the Financial Aid Office with any questions you may have.
  • Register for a Federal Student Aid Identification (FSA ID) and password with the U.S. Dept. of Education (https://fsaid.ed.gov). If your parent's information is used in applying for financial aid, one parent should also register for a FSA ID.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It's the first step and is required for all the New York Film Academy aid programs. The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA-on-the-Web is more accurate and faster.            

    The FAFSA code for The New York Film Academy is 041188.

    Submit the FAFSA as soon after January 1 as possible, even if your family taxes have not been filed at that time. Use estimated amounts if necessary. There is no charge for submitting this form.
  • Watch for an email from the U.S. Department of Education that will have a link to your Student Aid Report (SAR) which should arrive a few days after you submit the FAFSA online. If necessary, submit corrections (for example, income or tax information) as instructed on the SAR.
  • Investigate other sources of aid. These sources include scholarships from community, labor and service organizations, among others. Keep a file of records and copies of applications for future reference. Keep your financial aid award letters.
  • Contact The financial aid office for answers and advice.
  • Remember, to receive financial aid you must be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program and maintain good academic standing. Financial aid funds may be used only for education-related expenses. For most programs, you must be registered at least half-time. You must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
