December All current students are sent an email during the Christmas season informing them of the financial aid forms for the upcoming year, which are found on the Financial Aid website. (Christmas 2013 for the 2014-2015 academic year).


Complete the FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1 so that it will be received in our office by our April 1 priority deadline. We recommend mailing or completing the FAFSA on the Web ( by March 1 in order to meet this deadline.


Complete other forms from the financial aid packet as instructed on those forms.


After filing your FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report with the results of your application. This will come in paper format or via electronic mail if you gave an e-mail address when you completed your FAFSA. Review this and make any corrections that are needed. Any changes will be automatically sent to Messiah College.


When you file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the Federal processor might select you for verification. If so, you will need to complete the Messiah College Verification Worksheet and submit it to the Messiah College Financial Aid Office. The Financial Aid Instructions contain more information about verification under the section entitled Verification Forms.


Current students should receive their package by July 15. We do not start financial aid packages for continuing students until May and they are not completed until mid-July. If there are any items that are needed to complete your file, we will contact you. It is not necessary for you to contact us about the status of your package until July 15, unless you have reason to believe that there is a problem.
