A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:

John Jay College participates in all Title IV aid programs, State of New York’s Tuition Assistance Program (TAP Grant) and offers various Scholarship opportunities. Eligibility for federal and state aid programs are geared toward low income families with the goal of providing access to higher education.
The New York State Excelsior Scholarship covers tuition for eligible CUNY students who are New York State residents. Excelsior is the last dollar in after TAP, Title IV grants and other tuition assistance awards. Eligibility is primarily based on academic and financial requirements. This program serves low income to middle income earners.
The Percy Ellis Sutton SEEK (Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge) Program is for a limited number of New York State residents entering college for the first time who are in need of academic counseling and economic support. Economic eligibility for the SEEK Program must be determined before a student enrolls for their first semester. Students receive financial as well as academic support. SEEK students come from first-generation, low-income families and underrepresented minority communities.
The Accelerate Complete Engage (ACE) program at John Jay College is a comprehensive program designed to help students complete their academic journey to the bachelor’s degree within four years. The program is based on the principles of the CUNY Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) model which assists students with earning degrees by providing a range of financial, academic and personal supports including intensive academic advisement, career counseling, tuition assistance, and subsidies for textbooks and transportation.
