Important NYS DREAM Act Information

As a reminder, non-citizen students applying for NYS Student Financial Aid through the NYS DREAM Act are not required to complete the FAFSA to receive such State aid. As you continue to work with students applying through the NYS DREAM Act, please be aware that the only students who must complete the FAFSA are U.S. citizens and permanent resident aliens.

Information related to students who have accepted their NYS financial aid award(s) through the NYS DREAM Act can currently only be found on the Student Status Listing. HESC is working on adding these students to HESCWeb and rosters and will provide additional information at a later date.
