• When it comes to paying for college, you have options

  • We offer grants, scholarships, tuition payment plans, on/off campus jobs, and information about loans to cover college costs such as tuition, books, supplies and transportation. You might be surprised to find out how much financial aid you can receive, regardless of your family’s income level. You won’t know what you are eligible for unless you apply!






  • Emergency Financial Aid is available for students facing economic struggles.


    Whether you’ve had a loss of income, need support to pay for rent and utilities, food, tuition, textbooks, healthcare, or other expenses, you can apply for emergency assistance. (Please note that you can only apply once.)











  • Merit Scholarships

    Merit Scholarships


    LaGuardia Merit Scholarships ($500) are available for new students with an 80+ high school average and returning students with a 2.5 GPA or higher. Funds can be used to pay for tuition, fees, books and technology or used for personal expenses.
