Filing the FAFSA form allows families to be eligible to receive federal aid for college tuition. FAFSA is the first step in applying for student financial aid. Many forms of financial aid are need-based. Students who are not eligible due to economic status, may still be eligible for an unsubsidized Stafford Loan.
More than 94 percent of Mount Aloysius students receive financial aid. The average package for students is more than $10,000. Students also are eligible to receive a variety of institutional grants and scholarships.
Students and parents need to bring a 2016 completed Federal Tax form and individual W-S forms. They also need to bring documentation of taxed and untaxed income, current balance of cash, savings and checking accounts, net worth of your investments and business and farm values.
Participants are urged to apply for a FSA I.D. at said.ed.gov before the event. Both student and parents, if applicable, need to apply for an I.D. and sign the FAFSA document electronically. Mount Aloysius College’s Financial Aid Office reminds prospective students and their families that students and parents must use different email addresses when creating the FSA I.D.
