The Immigrant Student Resource and Research Center at CCNY offers services to aspiring and current students, regardless of their immigration status. We are here to answer any questions you may have and offer ongoing support throughout your academic journey. Below are the services our Center provides:
Assistance with Financial Aid Application
We offer one-on-one and group assistance to apply to the NYS Senator Jose Peralta Dream Act. We also share information about scholarships and other financial aid opportunities that are open to immigrant students, regardless of immigration status.
Support Accessing In-State Tuition Rates
Most immigrant students who reside in New York State may be eligible for in-state tuition rates. At CCNY, we understand that navigating eligibility requirements can be confusing, which is why we offer one-on-one support to help you determine your eligibility status and troubleshooting assistance.
Are you an immigrant student planning to apply for an undergraduate or graduate program? We provide support to equip you with a clear understanding of the application process related to your immigration status. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge needed to complete your application successfully and safely.
Connecting with Resource Networks
We connect you with important resources including legal services, mental health resources, food pantry, and emergency financial support.
