The EDP School understands that filling out a federal financial aid application can seem overwhelming and a little confusing. That’s why our Financial Aid Representative will work with you one-on-one to make applying as easy as possible. We’ll help you navigate the process and explain which of our academic programs are eligible for Federal Student Aid. We’ll also review various payment options with you – and of course, we’re here to help you once you start school too.
Federal Student Aid (federal financial aid) is available to all students who meet the basic eligibility requirements. The term “financial aid” includes grant programs and loan programs. Grant aid is awarded based upon financial need, but student loan programs are available to all eligible students regardless of the student’s financial situation.
Beginning The Application Process
At The EDP School our Financial Aid Office will help you every step of the way. However, there are some things you will need to do to help speed the process along. We’ll explain everything to you when you come in to visit the school, or you can refer to our “How To Apply” page for detailed do it yourself instructions. Either way, we’re here to help whenever you need us.
Your Financial Aid “Package”
Upon completion of the application process and admission into one of our eligible programs, the Financial Aid Office will prepare a “package” of financial aid for you based upon your eligibility and financial need. This award “package” may include a Federal PELL grant. The Financial Aid Office will meet with you one-on-one to discuss aid program offered, explain the timing of aid disbursements, describe billing and payment procedures, and advise you about alternative financing sources.
Rights and Responsibilities of a Financial Aid Recipient
Using financial aid is a serious responsibility. It is important that you understand your responsibilities as a recipient of Federal Student Aid, and that you know your rights. The EDP School has assembled a Rights and Responsibilities webpage to ensure that you understand these important concepts.

Cost, Financial Aid and Net Price Estimator
The EDP School provides prospective students with an on-line calculator that provides general estimates of costs and financial aid. These are of course only estimates, and your actual financial aid may vary. For actual cost and financial aid information, it is always best to visit the school and speak with the Financial Aid Office about your specific situation.Call us at (718) 332-6469 to set an appointment.
