Paying for your graduate education.
Choosing to continue your education is an investment in your future: It can open doors, advance your career, and help you have a greater impact on the lives of others and their communities. At Bank Street, our goal is to help you make the best choice to achieve your goals and provide you with the resources to help you fund your education.
Each year, Bank Street’s Office of Financial Aid administers over $8.5 million in financial aid to students. A majority of our students receive financial aid, and incoming students who earn up to $80,000 a year (or significantly more for students with families) are likely to qualify for a need-based scholarship at Bank Street. Our scholarship program makes the cost of attending Bank Street Graduate School of Education competitive with most other private schools in the New York region.
We encourage you to apply for financial aid at the same time that you complete your admissions application. To apply, follow the steps below.
How to Apply
Important Information About Submitting Your FAFSA
The financial aid process at Bank Street consists of completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To be given maximum consideration for financial aid, you should complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. Our financial aid offers are based on the information you reported in your FAFSA. Until we receive your FAFSA data, we cannot provide you with a financial aid offer letter containing your scholarship and loan eligibility. Financial Aid offer letters are sent via email after you have been admitted into a Bank Street College Program.
