How to Apply for Financial Assistance

Apply for Financial Aid … We’ll Guide You Through

The first step in the financial aid process is yours. In order to be eligible for all forms of financial assistance, other than academic or talent-based scholarships, all students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA can be completed any time after January 1 of the student’s senior year in high school. When submitting the FAFSA, simply include Spring Hill College’s FAFSA code, 001041, and the Department of Education will automatically send your information to our Financial Aid Office.

Families are encouraged to file as quickly as they can in order to receive the maximum assistance for which the student qualifies. Spring Hill’s priority FAFSA filing date is March 1. While we continue to make awards throughout the spring, it is better for you to be among the first considered. If there is a problem with early completion of tax returns, you should make estimates on the financial aid form in order to meet the March 1 deadline. Admitted freshmen and transfers who submit the FAFSA by March 1 will receive award letters within ten days after the results of the FAFSA are received and have until May 1 (The National Candidate’s Reply Date) to make their college choice. Financial aid packages are subject to revision after May 1 for students who have not confirmed their enrollment at Spring Hill.
