Aid Programs at St. John’s University
The Federal Pell Grant program is the core federal student aid program. The Office of Student Financial Services acts as the on-campus administrator for this program, but students apply through the federal processor.
Other programs, such as Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) and Federal Work-Study, are called campus-based programs because they are entirely administered by the school. Every year, the Department of Education allocates a specific amount of funds to the University for these programs. These funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. When the money is depleted, no further funds are available for the academic year.
Our Office coordinates the Federal Direct Loan Program, the National Health Professions Loan Program and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP).
St. John's encourages all students to file their FAFSA on an annual basis by March 1.

Unless otherwise indicated, the financial aid offer is based on full-time study. The financial aid award(s) may be adjusted if the student enrolls less than full time.
