满足学术要求的学生, 州居住, 和财务标准将自动获得起飞福利. Beyond completing the Free Application for Federal Student 援助 (FAFSA®) and NYS TAP grant application, 不需要完成额外的步骤或应用程序.

Is there a deadline for applicants to be eligible for the Take Flight Initiative?

There are no formal deadlines for the program; however, 以确保您的申请和奖励得到充分考虑, 我们鼓励学生完成他们的入学申请, FAFSA, 并尽快递交资助申请. Note that the 2024 FAFSA isn’t expected to be available until March 2024 at the earliest.


Take Flight guarantees eligible students will receive last-dollar grant or scholarship funding to cover tuition and mandatory fees not covered by other programs or awards. If other programs or awards are covering all of your tuition and mandatory fees already, then you will not be eligible for additional aid under this program as you are already receiving the intended benefit.

Does the Take Flight Initiative apply to students looking to transfer to 埃尔迈拉大学?

Take Flight计划目前不适用于转学生. The only exception is for students from New York colleges or universities that are closing if the student is enrolling full-time for the fall 2024 term. 埃尔迈拉大学 has generous financial aid packages available for transfer students. 看看mg冰球突破豪华版下载的流线型 转移过程 for a quick admission decision and discuss your financial aid options with one of our counselors.

I receive a third-party tuition benefit and my family income is in the eligible range. 我有资格吗??

如果你的学费和强制性费用完全由第三方支付, 比如退伍军人的教育福利或者雇主协议, 你就没有资格参加飞行计划. The Take Flight Initiative is intended to cover tuition and mandatory fee costs not otherwise covered by scholarships, 奖助金, 或者第三方奖励.

我的奖励会自动续期吗? If my family income changes, do I still qualify for the benefit in subsequent years?

和大多数基于需求的经济援助项目一样, 如果你的收入有了实质性的变化, 您的资格可能会受到影响. 阻止年收入的增加, you will be eligible for the Take Flight Initiative for four years while enrolled full-time at 埃尔迈拉大学.
