To apply for federal aid (i.e., Title IV aid which consists of federal student loans and/or Federal Pell Grant funds, if eligible) you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (which is also known as the FAFSA) and be accepted into one of our programs. If you are applying for the Summer 2023, Fall 2023 and/or Spring 2024 semester(s), you must complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA no later than three weeks before your program begins. If you are planning to begin a program of study during the Summer 2024 semester or beyond, please make sure to complete the 2024-2025 FAFSA which will become available on or after December 1, 2023.
Visit www.studentaid.gov and click on "Complete the FAFSA Form". Remember to list the Baptist School of Health Professions (our federal school code is 014956) as a school of choice so we can receive the results. Make sure to use the IRS data retrieval tool which makes completing the FAFSA an easy task!
Once we receive the FAFSA results, we will review your application, verify your acceptance and determine what you are eligible for in federal financial aid. (If we need additional information prior to awarding you financial aid, we will contact you. At random, students and their families will be selected for the verification process which requires the submission of additional paperwork such as a tax transcript, verification worksheet, etc.)
We will notify you of your financial aid eligibility and you will have the option of accepting, reducing or rejecting the aid that best complements your ability to pay for school.
If you choose to accept the awarded student loans to cover your cost of attendance, you must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and the mandatory Loan Entrance Counseling (located at www.studentaid.gov) as required by the Department of Education. These two items are required for all students new to the Baptist School of Health Professions regardless if you've done these at another college and/or university. Both items are located under the "Loans and Grants" tab after you log in to your studentaid.gov account.
