2016 Repayment Primer for DDS Students

2016 Repayment Primer for Dental Hygiene Students


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the basic application form for most student aid programs. We strongly encourage students to apply for financial aid electronically by using FAFSA on the Web, the fastest and most accurate method; the FAFSA is transmitted directly to the U.S. Department of Education and eliminates the additional processing time associated with a traditional printed form. This process is quicker and better for you and for New York University. FAFSA on the Web permits you to review the status of your submitted application and make changes if necessary.

The current FAFSA is available beginning January 1. It is never too late to apply for financial aid. Be sure to specify New York University in the school section of the FAFSA: the federal school code number for NYU is 002785.


Students and parents of dependent students may use a FSA ID (Federal Student Aid ID) to sign the FAFSA electronically and avoid the need to print and mail a signature page. The FSA ID can be used each year to apply for federal student aid and to review your record online at the U.S. Department of Education. Request your FSA ID. Once your information is verified with the Social Security Administration (1-3 days from the date you apply), you will receive an email indicating that the process is complete. At that time, you will be able to use your FSA ID to fully access your financial aid information on any Education Department site that requires a FSA ID.
