FINANCIAL AID:
 

How do I apply for financial aid?


•Go to fsaid.ed.gov to create an ID
•After creating ID, go to the website http://www.fafsa.ed.gov and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The application will be evaluated by the Department of Education. Within 3-5 business days an electronic Student Aid Report (SAR) will be sent to you and to the Financial Aid Office.
•The Financial Aid Office will evaluate the SAR to determine if your application was selected for verification. If you have been selected for verification, you will need to supply the Financial Aid Office with necessary documents such as copies of Federal tax return transcripts, verification worksheets, etc. If you are selected for verification, you must submit the proper documentation by the deadline..

What is the priority deadline for applying for financial aid?
Your FAFSA and all accompanying documentation such as verification documents must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office no later than May 1, 2018.

How will I be affected if I miss the financial aid deadline?
If you miss the deadline, it can result in classes being dropped for non-payment.

Do I reapply for financial aid each year?
You will need to renew your FAFSA form each academic year. This will be a much easier process than previously as you can link to the IRS to transfer tax information. Go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov to fill out the renewal FAFSA.

What documents/information will I need to fill out my FAFSA?

  • Your Social Security number
  • Your driver's license (if any)
  • Your W-2 forms and other records of money earned (from the previous year)
  • Your (and your spouse's, if you are married) Federal Income Tax information (from the previous year)
  • Your parent's Federal Income Tax information (if you are a dependent student)
  • Your untaxed income records (from previous year)
  • Your current business and investment mortgage information, business and farm records, stock, bond, and other investment records.

My parents are divorced. Whose information do I need for the FAFSA?
The parent with whom you lived with the most during the past year should complete the FAFSA. If you did not live with either parent or lived equally with each parent, use the information from the parent who provided you with the most financial support. It does not make a difference which parent claims you as a dependent for tax purposes.

What is the difference between dependent and independent students?
The US Department of Education considers a student a dependent up until the age of 24 except in certain circumstances.
Independent Status

  • You are at least 24 years old on the day you file your FAFSA
  • You are or will be enrolled in a masters or Doctoral degree program at the beginning of the school year
  • You are married on the day you file your FAFSA
  • You are a parent
  • You have dependents other than your spouse who live with you and who receive more than half their support from you at the time you apply
  • Both your parents are deceased (or were until age 18), and you are a ward of dependent of the court
  • You are currently serving on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces for purposes other than training
  • You are a Veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces.
  • You were a foster child after the age of 13.
  • You are an emancipated child as determined by a court judge.
  • You are homeless or at risk of homelessness as determined by the director of a HUD approved homeless shelter, transitional program, or a liaison.

If none of the above criteria apply to you, you’re a dependent student – even if your IRS tax status is different and even if you have no idea where your parents are.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are considered an independent student.

I do not get along with my parents or live with them. I pay my own rent and bills. Can I apply without my parent's income?
If unusual circumstances exist in your relationship with your parents, you may complete the Professional Judgment Form. This form is available from the Financial Aid Office.

When should I apply for financial aid?
You should complete a FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 of each year. This will help ensure the funds are available to you when tuition and fees are due. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received, so try to get your FAFSA filled out as early as possible.

Why was I selected for verification?
FAFSA selects 3 out of 5 of all applicants and requires the school to verify the information provided. It is a random process and does not necessarily mean that anything is wrong.

How will I know if I was selected for verification?
You can check your CougarNet account to see if you are selected for verification and see what forms are needed. You can also track the process on your account from start to finish.
