What is a FAFSA?
It is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It is FREE and easy to do. Read through it completely. You can complete it online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
When should I file a FAFSA?
During your senior year in high school, we recommend you file the FAFSA as soon after October 1st as possible to be eligible for the most financial aid. You will need your 2017 taxes to complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA.
What is Freed-Hardeman's Title IV School Code?
Do I have to do a FAFSA each year?
Yes. A FAFSA must be completed each year to be eligible for financial aid from year to year.
What documents do I need to complete the FAFSA?
You will need: your Social Security Number, Driver's License, Income Tax Return, bank statements, and investment records.
What is an "EFC"?
It is the Expected Family Contribution. It is the results from the FAFSA, that is determined by the Department of Education. It is used as a qualifier for need-based aid, such as Pell Grants and Institutional aid.
Who is eligible to receive federal financial aid?
You must: be a U.S. Citizen; have a valid social security number; comply with Selective Service registration; have a high school diploma, a GED, or pass a ATB test; be enrolled or accepted for enrollment in a degree or certificate eligible program.
Can I use FAFSA on the Web to estimate my EFC?
Yes. You can use FAFSA on the Web to calculate your EFC. The estimated EFC will print on the confirmation page when you have completed the application.
Do I have to file the federal income tax returns before completing the FAFSA?
It will be easier to answer the questions on the FAFSA if the tax returns are completed. If you have not completed your tax return, you may use estimates on your tax information to complete the FAFSA.
How do I know if it will be worthwhile for me to complete the FAFSA?
If your EFC is less than the cost of attendance (COA), you may benefit from completing the FAFSA. We suggest that you at least complete it for the first year to see what the results will be. For TN residents, the FAFSA must be completed to get the HOPE Scholarship or any aid from the state. Students will also need to file the FAFSA to be able to participate in the work study program.
If I am considering transferring to Freed-Hardeman, what should I do?
You should complete the Admissions process and have all official transcripts from all schools sent to FHU. You should also add FHU (003492) to your list of colleges on your FAFSA. We will then send you an award letter/package once you are accepted by Admissions.
What does it mean if I am selected for "verification"?
The Department of Education selects 30% of FAFSA applications for a process called verification. The school you are attending has to verify the income information listed on your FAFSA. You will need to complete the verification worksheet and send copies of parent and student tax return transcripts with W2s. This process could change your EFC.
Can I fax my verification documents?
Yes. These documents can be faxed to 731-989-6775.
What is the income criteria for getting need-based aid?
It varies depending on the family size, how many are in college, income, assets, and other factors.
How do I apply for Institutional scholarships?
Apply by completing the FAFSA as soon after October 1 as possible and be admitted to FHU.
When will I receive my financial aid award letter?
You will receive an award package once you are admitted to FHU, the FAFSA is completed and all required documents have been submitted to the Office of Financial Aid. We will contact you by letter and let you know if other documents are needed to complete your FAFSA. We try to get award letters out by the end of March.
What happens if I withdraw from the University during the semester?
Withdrawing completely from the University after the drop/add date of each semester will affect your financial aid. For more information and details, visit the Title IV and Institutional Aid Refund Policy page.
