Go Further Housing Grant is no longer being offered to incoming students as of Fall 2021.
SUNY Potsdam established the Go Further Housing Grant to assist selected freshman/first time students in meeting their financial obligation. This grant is dorm rent discount. Students MUST live on campus to receive this funding. This award will renew for a maximum of eight semesters. If you choose to live off campus during the Academic Year you will not be eligible to receive the Grant.
If a student receives other housing specific benefits (campus life housing waivers, student life housing waivers, resident assistant, and athletics), the total of those benefits and the Go Further Housing Grant cannot exceed the cost of your dorm rent.
The grant is subject to available funding levels, the student’s financial need (EFC must be equal to or less than $3000), the student’s on campus housing charge, and the student’s satisfactory academic progress (SAP)..
Students must enroll during our fall semester and must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA should be filed before February 1st of the year the student intends to enroll to be given full consideration. Students with substantial financial need are considered.
