WHAT TIME IS IT???
IT'S FAFSA TIME!
REMEMBER TO DO YOUR FAFSA! IT IS REQUIRED EACH YEAR. YOU CAN COMPLETE YOUR 2014-2015 FAFSA AT www.fafsa.gov beginning January 1, 2014. Complete your FAFSA by March 1st to be considered for the most aid! Although your taxes may not be complete, you may estimate the amounts using last year's taxes or the tool available while completing the FAFSA. Be sure to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool within the FAFSSA application if your taxes have been filed electronically for at least a week and at least 3 weeks for paper filings. This will insure the information is properly corrected.
You can still do your FAFSA after this date and be considered for the Federal Pell Grant and Direct Stafford Loans
If you are a new student for Spring 2014, you will need to have the 2013-2014 FAFSA on file. If you have not completed this yet, go to www.fafsa.gov to get it completed. Using the IRS Data Retrieval Process to pull in your 2012 information will insure your FAFSA can be processed quickly. Be sure to use Pierpont's school code - 040385.
Although this video is for 2013-2014, the basic process is the same for 2014-2015.
Welcome to the Financial Aid and Scholarship web site! Within these web pages you will find information about what financial aid is, how you apply for it, the types of financial aid, policies and regulations governing financial aid, scholarship information, and the list goes on. As Federal Regulations change, we also have to make changes. We will make every effort to keep this information up-to-date and useful as well as clearly presented.
We encourage all students to apply for financial aid. Do you know that more than 80 percent of our students receive some sort of scholarship and/or financial aid? Even if you do not think you will qualify, apply anyway. Wouldn’t it be a nice surprise if you did qualify?
To apply for financial aid, simply click on the link above for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) found at the top of this page. This is your first step in the process. You should also apply for our scholarships which have a separate application. There might be one with your name on it!
