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 (www.fafsa.ed.gov) 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.
