The Financial Aid Office at SUNY Adirondack annually administers more than $20 million through various federal, state and institutional aid programs. With the exception of the state grant programs (which are intended to fund tuition only), these monies may be used toward all costs related to college attendance. Such costs include tuition, fees, room and board (including on-campus housing), books, transportation, and personal expenses.
Financial Aid representatives are available in Warren Hall weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to answer questions and distribute application materials on a walk-in basis. General information can be obtained by telephone; however, to ensure confidentiality, dollar amounts cannot be discussed on the telephone. If you would like to make an appointment to meet with an administrator regarding in-depth questions or concerns, please call the Financial Aid Office at (518) 743-2223. Evening appointments can also be arranged.
The student portal and/or Self Service Banner can also be used to answer many of your questions and we encourage all students to log in on a regular basis. Requirement Tracking will answer questions about the receipt of your FAFSA record or outstanding documentation needed prior to the review of your application. Perhaps the most important section of Banner Self Service is the Award section – review your aid eligibility, accept offered work and loan awards. The Financial Aid History section will show aid received in 2007-2008 and beyond including your past and current loans. Finally, within the Student Accounts section, the Account Detail by Term option allows you to see how your aid is applied or deferred against your semester bill.
