All students must apply for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for financial aid (including student loans). Students and their parents should complete/submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible, applications are available January 1, so that we can receive the FAFSA results via the federal processor by our priority filing date of March 15th. Complete the FAFSA online: www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Tips for completing the FAFSA:
- When completing the FAFSA over the Internet, parents and students should create a FSA ID before completing the application. The federal processor will not process the FAFSA application until it is signed. The FSA ID is used as an electronic signature.
- The FAFSA application instructions should be followed very carefully. Have all of your financial information gathered before starting the FAFSA.
- In order for Wilberforce to receive information from the FAFSA, students must enter the School Code 003141 in the school section of the FAFSA.
- Although, we recommend submitting the FAFSA electronically, the completed paper FAFSA can be mailed to the processing center. It generally takes four to six weeks by mail. The Federal Processing Center will send a Student Aid Report (SAR) to the student after processing your FAFSA.
