Applying for Financial Aid

Federal, State, and Baylor Need-based Aid Programs
To be considered for federal, state, and Baylor need-based financial aid including federal loans, federal and state grants, and need-based Baylor scholarships, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There is no fee to file the FAFSA. The 2014-2015 application is now available to complete online at www.fafsa.gov. Aid for the 2014 summer term is based on the 2013-2014 FAFSA. Aid for the 2013-2014 academic year (2013 fall, 2014 spring, 2014 summer) is based on the 2013-2014 FAFSA.

If possible, use completed tax return information on your FAFSA; otherwise, provide your best estimates. Allow 5 to 7 business days for your FAFSA results to be received at Baylor.

March 1, 2014, is the priority date for receipt of your 2014-2015 FAFSA results. FAFSAs received prior to March 1, 2014, will be given priority consideration for financial aid. FAFSAs received after this date will be considered for aid based on the availability of funds.

Currently enrolled students will start receiving their 2014-2015 financial aid offers in early April.
