The financial aid process begins by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you wish to apply for financial aid, including loans and work study, then you must complete the FAFSA.
You should gather federal income tax returns and W2 forms for yourself and your parent(s). If you or your parent has not yet filed your federal income tax return, then you can estimate income information and subsequently update the FAFSA when your tax returns are complete.
You can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov. The data entered on the FAFSA will be used to calculate an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC is used by the Financial Aid Office to determine eligibility for federal, state, and institutional aid.
You may select up to 10 schools to receive the results of your FAFSA. You should enter Rosemont's school code (003360) if you would like to receive financial aid from Rosemont College.
You and your parent will both need to sign the FAFSA. You can sign electronically with the PIN issued by the U.S. Department of Education while completing your FAFSA. Alternately, you can print a signature page which both you and your parent will need to sign and return by mail to the FAFSA processor.
Rosemont College generally receives FAFSA results in 2-4 business days if the application is signed electronically.
