The Financial Aid Office is located in the Student Service Center (One Hop Shop). 

We exist to provide personal assistance to students and their families on a one-to-one basis. We can assist you with the various financial aid applications and questions you have on the processes from your first application to beyond graduation.

Every effort is made to ensure that students are not denied the benefits of a SUNY Canton education on the sole basis of financial need.
