  • Awards are not automatically renewable; students must reapply for financial aid each year by the published deadlines. Financial aid applicants are expected to apply for all sources of aid available to them, including New York State TAP and outside merit scholarships.
  • Federal Aid Only Students who did not apply for need-based Barnard Grant aid by the deadline but would like to take advantage of U.S. Department of Education Federal Student Aid, including Federal Direct Stafford Loans and the Federal Pell Grant, are not required to complete the CSS Profile.

Please visit the Applying for a Loan page of our website for Federal Direct Stafford student loan and Federal Direct parent PLUS loan application procedures.

  • All New York State (NYS) residents who receive Barnard Grant aid must also apply for NYS TAP. We will estimate the TAP award in your financial aid package and include it as part of total grant funds available. If an aid recipient neglects to apply for TAP, we reserve the right to bill her for the total amount of her estimated award.
