    Incoming Full Time & Part Time

    • Incoming full time students must submit a FAFSA by June 21st, 2019. Part time students must file a completed FAFSA by August 21st, 2019.  Deadline exceptions allowed to these dates only with prior approval of Herkimer BOCES Nursing Coordinator.  Our school code for FAFSA is 014517.

    • Students who do not have enough funding (through Grants and Federal Student Loans) to cover all tuition and fees for the semester will have to pay the balance of deficit by the first week of class in order to continue attending classes.

    • Students applying for grants from Working Solutions or any funding source outside of PELL must submit proof of contract and the eligible dollar amount.

    • If attending full time is not financially feasible, please consider attending as a part time student.

    • Should you decide not to attend Herkimer BOCES Practical Nursing Program, please let us know immediately, so we can offer your seat to another student candidate.
