Determining Financial Need

In developing a student’s financial aid award package, NYCDA begins by constructing a budget based on the estimated cost of education for the academic year, including tuition, supplies, and living expenses.
A student’s need for financial assistance is defined as the difference between the estimated cost of attendance and the student’s available resources.
