|How UB determines your need
If you are a New York State Resident, you will receive the Express TAP Application in the mail. Information gathered from your FAFSA and your family's calculated New York State net taxable income will be preprinted on the form. Review this info
UB determines your need by subtracting your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) provided by the federal processor from the total educational costs associated with your attendance at UB (tuition and fees, room, meal plan, books & supplies, transportation, and personal expenses). The remainder is "student need" which is the basis of your UB financial aid package which may consist of federal and state financial aid entitlements (Pell and TAP grants) as well as campus-based aid (e.g. Federal Work Study) and student loans (e.g. Federal Direct Stafford Loan).

UB will let you know!
UB will send you an award letter detailing the aid you are eligible to receive. You must accept or decline the offer of aid by the deadline.
