Housing Status & Financial Aid

A student's housing status will impact his/her financial aid eligibility. Because total costs are different for resident students versus commuters, the Office of Financial Aid takes those costs into account when developing a financial aid package.

In addition, institutional funds such as grants or scholarships may be contingent upon a student's housing status.  Typically, if a student is awarded a resident grant upon entry into Wagner, it will indicate the grant may be adjusted based upon change in housing status.  Please keep this information in mind as you are deciding whether or not to live on campus.  It is strongly recommended that you contact the Office of Financial Aid prior to making a decision about a change in housing status.
