To apply for federal aid (i.e., Title IV aid) 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 2017, Fall 2017 and/or Spring 2018 semester(s), you must complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA no later than two weeks before your program begins. NOTE: FAFSA applications are processed in the order received by the Financial Aid Office so the sooner you apply - the sooner you will hear.
Visit www.fafsa.ed.gov and remember to list the Baptist School of Health Professions (our federal school code is 014956) as a school of choice. 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 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 Direct Loan Master Promissory Note and the mandatory Entrance Counseling (www.studentloans.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.
