Financial Aid: It all starts with your FAFSA

What is FAFSA?


FAFSA stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It is how you apply for federal student aid, such as federal grants, work-study, and loans—but it’s also what we use to build your individualized financial aid package.

 

Am I eligible for FAFSA??


Your financial aid award is based on your individual financial need and eligibility. It may include various types of aid such as Westminster scholarships, grants, loans, and/or work study employment. Eligible students meeting required deadlines are offered the maximum amount of aid available after considering external sources such as the Federal Pell Grant, State Grants and non-Westminster college scholarships.

 

Completing your FAFSA


To complete your FAFSA, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov

 

Westminster FAFSA School Code


Make sure you enter Westminster College’s school code 003392 so that a copy of your completed FAFSA is sent to us.

 

How do I fill out the FAFSA?


Looking for tips? The U.S. Department of Education provides a step-by-step guide to filling out both the student and parent portions of the FAFSA form at here.

 

When will I know how much Aid I will receive?


Once we receive the results of your FAFSA, our Office of Financial Aid will review them and determine the resources available to you. Our goal is to keep your Westminster education as affordable as possible.
