How To: View Your Tuition with Financial Aid in CUNYfirst
How To: View Your Tuition with Financial Aid in CUNYfirst is a video tutorial that will show students exactly where to navigate in CUNYfirst to see their tuition and fee account balances after financial aid has been taken into consideration.
One of the most pressing issues our students have faced at the beginning of the semester is acclimation to our new operating environment – CUNYfirst. This video and the creation of a Brooklyn College – Office of Financial Aid YouTube channel is a direct response to that need for additional guidance and information in a readily available format.
We look forward to serving our students more and more via social media in the coming days, months and years. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this crucial transitional period at Brooklyn College.

Message From the Director
Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid's website. Our mission is to help you and other students become academically successful Brooklyn College graduates who benefited from the many opportunities of higher education that the college has to offer. Whether you are a current or prospective student, please know that we are working on your behalf.
If you are one of the more than 17,000 Brooklyn College students who needs help to pay for their educational related expenses, we understand that you face challenging times. Significant national economic challenges recently led Congress to make various changes to Title IV student aid programs. Nonetheless, Brooklyn College students receive more than $90 million a year in financial aid. Our office manages federal and state grants, federal and private loans, and work-study job employment programs, and is liaison to the Office of International Education and Global Engagement. Our office serves more than 9,000 students a year.
We have designed this website to inform you on federal, state and institutional financial aid information. This is in response to the our students' growing concern to understand the changing and often complicated new federal and state financial aid regulations, including Lifetime Eligibility Usage (LEU), Return to Title IV (R2T4), Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). But the reality is that more and more is expected from students not just here, but across the country to maintain their financial aid eligibility. Expectations are for students to progress successfully toward their degree and earn the majority of the credits that they attempt. We hope that you will use the important information provided on this website.
Despite shrinking grant programs, our goal is to award you the best possible aid package and to provide the financial advice and education you need to be a successful Brooklyn College student and to flourish as an alumnus.
