Applying for Financial Aid


Deadline for incoming students to apply for financial aid

February 15, 2014

The deadline to submit all required financial aid application materials is February 15, 2014. If you do not submit your application for financial aid by the deadline for the year in which you are admitted to F&ES, we will not consider you for a scholarship.

Unlike other schools to which you may be applying, the primary basis of F&ES scholarships is financial need, not merit. We must have your financial information by the deadline to consider you for a scholarship. You may still submit an application if you wish to work as a Student Assistant or borrow a loan, however.

We are a need blind institution. Applying for financial aid and having financial need in no way affects our decision to offer you admission.
Your eligibility for a scholarship is dependent in part on our analysis of your 2013 income and assets as of the date you submit your application. If final year-end figures are not available before February 15, provide estimates. We do not allow exceptions to the deadline if final figures are not available. In general, future changes in your income and assets are not considered.
You will receive a confirmation after successfuly submitting any of these forms.


Deadline for returning students to apply for financial aid

April 15, 2014

All Master's students receiving scholarship, loan, and/or student assistantship funding in 2013-2014 or in prior years and planning to return for 2014-2015 must re-apply for financial aid by April 15, 2014.

The required application materials are as follows:

IRS Data Retrieval Tool

If possible, please e-file your 2013 federal income tax return at least 2 weeks prior to completing your FAFSA so that you may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import information from your tax return directly into your FAFSA. If this means you will not be able to complete your FAFSA by the April 15 deadline, complete your FAFSA with estimated figures and then later submit a correction once you have filed your tax return and it is available for data retrieval from the IRS.
