Prepare for admission to Spring Hill College with our financial aid checklist. This checklist is for confirmed students who will be attending Spring Hill College. Now that you’ve decided to join us on The Hill, there are a few more steps you need to take regarding your financial aid:

1. Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Apply for financial aid at www.fafsa.gov. The FAFSA priority deadline is March 1. You can learn more about the FAFSA process here.

2. FAFSA Verification

Each year, approximately one-third of students are selected by the Department of Education for a process known as “verification” as part of the application process for Federal Financial Aid.

If you are selected for verification, please complete the process by May 1. Your offer will remain estimated until this is completed, and you will not be able to use your aid to pay your bill. You will be notified by email which of the following verification forms are required for you:

See the Financial Aid/FAFSA Verification Policy here for more information on this process. You can also watch a step-by-step video tutorial on completing verification here.
