Governor Cuomo Issues Proclamation to Encourage Students and Families to Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Early in the New Year
Start Here, Get There is HESC’s annual statewide campaign to educate students and families about college financial aid and offer assistance in completing the FAFSA. Last year, HESC and college
financial aid volunteers helped thousands of students and families complete the FAFSA through personal, one-to-one assistance at FAFSA completion events held across the state.
The U.S. Department of Education, with the assistance of state grant agencies, has implemented a new program, called the FAFSA Completion Initiative, to help increase FAFSA completion rates and promote college access and success.
New York’s second annual College Application Week was a great success, thanks to the 209 high schools and community groups that participated this year, strong partners, including the New York City Department of Education, and volunteers from college admission offices.
New York’s best and brightest students are now able to apply for the New York STEM Incentive Program for the 2015-2016 academic year.
Keep your school counseling office stocked with free financial aid publications from HESC.
