Apply For Financial Aid
At D'Youville, we're committed to ensuring our students graduate with a strong financial
future. We show that commitment through the high income potential of our graduates
and through connecting our students to both D'Youville scholarships and outside scholarships.
The first step in the process begins with the FAFSA.
Add D'Youville to Your FAFSA
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form that helps determine
your eligibility for financial aid. If you're a student, or parent of a student, you
can find full details on our FAFSA resources webpage. You'll receive a notification about your financial aid in your MyDYC account. If you have any questions, please reach out to one of our Financial Aid Counselors.
- Suggested Deadline: February 15 for fall admission, November 1 for spring admission
- D'Youville FAFSA code: 002712
Undergraduate New York Residents, Submit TAP
Residents the State of New York are eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program. After
filing the FAFSA, a pre-printed TAP application will be generated automatically. Full
details are available on the D'Youville Grants page.
- D'Youville TAP code: 0195
Review Your Financial Offer
Once we receive your financial forms, we'll review your information and explain your
financial aid benefits. You'll get a notification in your email and in your MyDYC
account. When you're enrolled at D'Youville, you'll also have access to ScholarshipUniverse,
an online tool that automatically matches you to internal, local, and national scholarships
throughout your time at D'Youville.
If you have any questions, our Financial Aid Counselors are always happy to speak with you, or you can visit the Solutions Center located on the second floor of the Koessler Administration Building. Have a question?
Email us at email@example.com.
Complete and Submit Your Immunization Forms
New York State law requires proof of immunization for measles, mumps, rubella, and
meningitis before registering for classes. To manage all required immunization records,
D'Youville has partnered with CastleBranch to help. Maintain and submit your records online to the CastleBranch website.
Submit Your Health Records
Submit Your Final Transcripts
Regardless if you're a first-time freshman, transfer student, or graduate student,
we'll need official transcripts for our records. Any institution you've attended,
whether it is a high school or a previous college, will be able to submit official
transcripts to us. To submit transcripts, you'll contact the transcript issuer and
have them sent to our admissions office at:
D'Youville Admissions Office
320 Porter Ave
Buffalo, NY 14201
Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate Exams
If you're taking Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) exams,
you'll need to have official scores sent to D'Youville. For more information, view our AP/IB policies.
If you're a transfer student who is currently enrolled at another college or university,
make sure to send your official college transcript(s) prior to final enrollment at
D'Youville. New York State residents also need to provide proof of high school graduation
for financial aid purposes.
Meet Your Academic Advisor and Register for Classes
Our Student Success Center is a one-stop office dedicated to ensuring our students are successful at D'Youville.
Once we receive your acceptance information, we'll send an invitation to meet with
your academic advisor. As part of your Student Success team, your academic advisor
will help you select your classes, assist in transferring credits, and map out your
future at D'Youville. This typically happens in April or May for the fall semester
and in November for the spring semester.
Secure Your Housing
National statistics show that students who live on campus perform better academically
and are more engaged on campus. At D'Youville, we encourage students to live on campus
and take advantage of our community and our location in Buffalo's West Side neighborhood.
Studies show that students who live in residence halls acclimate more rapidly to the
collegiate environment and are more satisfied with their overall experience. For this
reason, we require all first-time in college students and freshmen transfer students to live on campus
until their sophomore year, incoming students in the Physician Assistant and Occupational Therapy programs to
live on campus for the first two years of study, and all HEOP and Say Yes applicants
to live on campus for all four years of their education.
To reserve on-campus housing, you need to submit a housing deposit and meet housing
requirements. You can submit the deposit online, by mail, or in person. The Student
Engagement Office will contact you with the housing forms, once your housing deposit
has been processed. The housing forms, including the application and roommate questionnaire, are also available
online, beginning in April.
Submit Your Housing Deposit
Sign Up for Orientation
At our orientation events, you'll have the chance to meet fellow students, get answers
to your final questions, and learn about the resources here dedicated to helping you
succeed. You'll have fun, but you'll also do a lot to make sure you're successful
here, so attendance is mandatory. You'll receive an invitation to register in your
