Submit your FAFSA by March 1 for priority awarding and don’t forget to enter Evangel’s school code: 002463
FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. To fill out your FAFSA or simply learn more about the FAFSA, visit: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.
You will need to fill out a School Code when completing your FAFSA. This is assigned by the federal government as a unique identifier for each school. The Evangel University FAFSA code is 002463.
FAFSA uses a formula to determine how much financial aid you can receive based on your annual expected family contribution (EFC). After determining your EFC, a financial aid Award Letter is generated and mailed to you. This award letter lists the types and amounts of financial assistance you qualify for. Not everyone who submits a FAFSA will receive financial aid.
When it comes to the FAFSA, most federal, state, and institutional aid is provided on a first come, first served basis. Students are advised to submit a FAFSA as early as possible for consideration for maximum financial assistance (the more financial aid the better, right?).
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form used for the awarding of federal student aid. This is a free application that must be completed by all students in order to receive financial aid. The application can be completed online by visiting www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Log back onto the FAFSA and add Evangel’s code (002463). Then re-sign and submit the FAFSA. Other options include calling 1-800-433-3243 and having the Information Center send your information to Evangel, or adding Evangel’s code (002463) on Part II of your Student Aid Report (SAR) and sending it back to the processor to make the change.
You can use estimated income figures to file your FAFSA. However, it is best to complete your tax return early and transfer that information to your FAFSA to have the most accurate application and avoid corrections later.
Federal and University financial aid funds will be applied to your student account if all eligibility criteria are met (financial aid documents and verification completed, attendance established etc.) no earlier than within one week after the end of the Add/Drop Period each semester. Outside funds (third party scholarships, state grants, etc.) are applied when received by the University.
The parent you lived with most in the last 12 months. If you lived with each parent for an equal number of days, use the parent who provided the most financial support during the last 12 months, or during the most recent calendar year that you were actually supported by a parent. Support includes money, gifts, loans, housing, food, clothes, car, medical and dental care, payment for college costs, etc.
You can complete a Special Circumstance form with the required documentation of circumstances and submit it to Student Financial Services. The form will be evaluated to see if any adjustments in your federal aid can be made based on your individual circumstances. If you are an Independent student, contact your Financial Aid Counselor.
