Fordham Offers Mt. Vernon & Yonkers Students “Neighbors” Financial Assistance


Fordham University’s Rose Hill Campus

The Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Students (PCS) is pleased to announce the launch of its Good Neighbor Initiative for the Fall 2021 term. This unique program for adult learners provides an automatic 30 percent off of tuition for undergraduate-seeking PCS students at the University’s Rose Hill Campus in the Bronx who live within certain “neighbor” zip codes.

Selected zip codes cover neighborhoods in the Bronx, lower Westchester County (Mount Vernon, Yonkers) and the very northern part of Manhattan. For a full list of zip codes, visit www.fordham.edu/goodneighbor

“As a result of the turbulence of the last year, Universities have been under tremendous pressure to keep tuition the same or even increase it to help the bottom line. However, Fordham PCS is committed to supporting the communities we serve, and that serve us in return,” said Dr. Anthony Davidson, dean, Fordham PCS. “Over the years we have offered similar tuition assistance for public servants, such as members of the FDNY and NYPD and Westchester County employees, and we are proud to expand this offering to the communities directly surrounding our Rose Hill Campus. These individuals live and work in our neighborhood and we are thrilled to be able to give back to them and provide the opportunity for a best-in-class education right in their own backyard.”

Students who participate in the Good Neighbor Initiative may also qualify for additional financial aid, such as merit aid, Pell grants, support from the New York State Tuition Assistance Program, and institutional aid. If a student qualifies for more than one discount (e.g., NYPD, FDNY, NYC Ballet Dancers, etc.), the student will receive the higher of the two awards.

Fordham PCS will host a virtual information session on June 2 at 6:30 p.m. where they will explain the Good Neighbor Initiative and Fordham’s undergraduate degree programs for adult learners. Those who attend will have their application fees waived. Click here to register.
