2022-2023 Student Forms

CUNY Student Forms

You can now verify your FAFSA documents electronically!

Campus Logic Student Forms: https://cuny-cty.studentforms.com/

Each year when you apply for financial aid, you have a chance of being selected for a process called verification. This process is required by the U.S. Department of Education in an effort to ensure the accuracy of financial aid applications. Students that have been selected in the past have had to collect specific forms and tax documents and submit them to your campus Financial Aid Office in person, via fax or by mail – but now, students can easily complete their forms and upload their documents online from their phone, tablet, or computer!

What is Student Forms?

Student Forms is our new student portal that allows students (and parents) to electronically sign and upload documents! This means that you can submit your financial aid documents securely without having to come into the campus Financial Aid Office. As the students and the college financial aid staff work through the forms, the Student Forms software will send updates in real time with documentation that is needed based on the answers provided by the students. Once you have submitted all your forms to resolve outstanding financial aid tasks, the integration with our other CUNY applications will update CUNYfirst in real time.

For more information, please visit CUNY Student Forms.


Help in resolving error log-in issues with Student Forms

Error Code 1010  indicates that the student is entering information into the confirm information section (First Name, Last Name, DOB, and SSN) that does not match what is on the ISIR.  (Please review your FAFSA Application)

Common data entry errors include:

  • Not including suffixes in the last name that were included on the FAFSA. i.e. Evans Jr
  • Using a nickname or shorter version of full name, when full name was used on the FAFSA Rich instead of Richard
  • Extra spaces were entered between names on the FAFSA but not during account creation McFadden was entered Mc Fadden on the FAFSA.
  • Special characters entered in name on FAFSA, and not entered when creating an account. i.e. La'Juan.

Note: Users of Apple devices may experience issues creating an account if they have smart punctuation enabled on their device. Smart punctuation will need to be turned off prior to creating an account.

Please contact our Financial Aid Office if the problem is not resolved after reviewing your data on the processed FAFSA Application called an ISIR /Student Aid Report.

How to request an EFC (income adjustment) appeal to financial aid?
