Office of Financial Aid

COVID-19 Update May 1, 2020: SUNY Geneseo has been awarded funds from the federal CARES Act for the purpose of providing emergency financial aid grants to eligible students. As soon as funds become available, current students will be given instructions on how to apply.

While the office is closed for in-person visits, we are still providing all services virtually. We hope to resume normal operations later in the spring. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Please email or call (585) 245-5731. If you need to submit documents to our office, please fax them to (585) 245-5717 or use our SECURE upload process.

We help students and families navigate federal and state financial aid at every stage of the process, from application to graduation. We also provide counseling on budgeting, study abroad, and available aid programs.
