The college participates in various state and federal aid programs which are accessible to qualified students based on completion of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Our federal code is 022233
You can apply online on or after October 1st of the year prior to your enrollment. The FAFSA must be completed every year, so returning students will be able to renew their FAFSA and update last year’s data.
If you are a dependent student, this information will apply to your parents as well.
The college participates in the following federal aid programs. The financial aid office will let you know which programs you are eligible for after you complete the FAFSA:
Your FAFSA may be selected for a process called verification. Students flagged for verification will be asked to provide additional documents to the Financial Aid Office in order to confirm or correct information on the FAFSA. Awards will not be finalized until the verification process is complete.
You will receive this report via email within a day or two after completing the FAFSA. It contains the data you entered on the FAFSA and your FAFSA “score” or EFC (Expected Family Contribution).
Funds will be disbursed by the Federal Government to your Magdalen College account once all the appropriate paperwork has been filed with the Financial Aid Office. These funds are disbursed in two payments—one payment at the beginning of the fall semester and again in January for the spring semester.
Federal regulations require that students who receive federal student aid meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). The policy is also listed in the College Catalog and is provided to each student along with the Financial Aid Award Letter. This policy outlines the minimum qualifications to maintain SAP and the consequences of deficiencies in a student’s academic progress.
Magdalen’s Office of Financial Aid may determine that unusual circumstances warrant a professional judgment to modify the data on a completed FAFSA. We will review your FAFSA and ask for documentation, on a case-by-case basis, to support your request for special consideration in adjusting your FAFSA information. It is important to know that not all changes in circumstances will result in an adjustment to the student’s eligibility. Applications are reviewed after all supporting documents are received. This document outlines the Special Circumstances and Dependency Override Policies and the deadlines for consideration for Professional Judgment.
