The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form by which federal and state governments determine need, can help students cover tuition, room and board. Indiana students may be eligible to receive state grants by submitting the FAFSA by March 10, 2016.
“Applying for college should go hand-in-hand with filing a FAFSA,” said Cindy Sisson, vice president for enrollment management at Grace College. “After being accepted to a college and filing a FAFSA, students will receive information on the federal, state and institutional financial aid for which they are eligible,” she continued.
The FAFSA can be completed online at www.fafsa.gov and the school code for Grace College is 001800. Students may include up to 10 college codes on their FAFSA.
“Students who are accepted to Grace and include code 001800 on their FAFSA will receive a personalized letter from us detailing the complete financial aid package we can offer. Then, an admissions counselor will call them to answer any questions and ensure they understand all aid available to them,” said Sisson.
Grace College endeavors to make quality, Christian higher education accessible to as many students as possible. Ninety-nine percent of Grace College students receive financial aid. Admissions counselors are always available to answer questions and assist families in securing aid, including filing the FAFSA.
