The Cooper Union was founded on the principle of providing access to higher education regardless of race, creed, gender or financial means. Tuition assistance has been integral to the make-up of the institution since it began over 150 years ago. Our admissions process is need-blind which means your financial circumstances have no bearing on your admissions decision.
At Cooper Union, every admitted undergraduate student receives a half-tuition scholarship currently valued at $22,275 per academic year (2019-2020). All Cooper Union institutional scholarships, assistance and grants require full-time enrollment and satisfactory academic progress eligibility. Students will automatically be considered for additional merit based scholarship through the admissions process. In order to be considered for need-based aid, students must file the FAFSA form. For more information, review the financial aid priority deadlines.
FAFSA (Title IV Institutional) Code: 002710
NYS TAP Code: 0170
