Financial Aid

U.S. Citizen and Permanent Resident students may be eligible to take out federal and/or private education loans to cover tuition and other education-related costs that might include books and supplies; room and board; personal expenses; and transportation costs. For federal student loans, students must fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Be sure to include the FAFSA school code for Teachers College (TC): G03979.

The Financial Aid Office provides counseling and assistance with completing the financial aid application, evaluation, and determination of need.
