Degree-seeking students are eligible for U.S. Federal Financial Aid. Students may apply for Federal Subsidized Stafford Student Loans, Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loans and Alternative Loans. To receive aid, students must meet the following criteria:
- Demonstrate financial need (except for some loan programs)
- Be an accepted and enrolled degree-seeking graduate student at Stephens College
- Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen
- Have a valid Social Security Number
- Make satisfactory academic progress
- Certify that federal student aid will be used only for educational purposes
- Certify that they are not in default on a federal student loan
Students can apply by filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after January 1 each year. Students can file electronically at www.fafsa.ed.gov or request a paper copy from the Financial Aid office. Be sure you insert the school code: 002512.
Many students who are employed have fringe benefit packages that include money for education or training. Students who are employed should check with supervisors or the Human Resources staff at their company for possible benefits. Employer reimbursement is solely between the student and employer. The student is responsible for making regular monthly payments on account balances with Stephens College, and any remaining balance must be paid in full prior to each semester.
Veterans Administration Benefits
The Veterans Administration (VA) will notify the Stephens College Office of the Registrar of those students receiving VA benefits. The Stephens College Office of the Registrar verifies course enrollment and completion at the end of each semester. The student is responsible for contacting the VA regarding course load, completion deadlines and other policies that will apply. In order to comply with VA minimum standards, it will be necessary for students who receive VA benefits to check with the VA on guidelines and benefits that apply to the Graduate & Continuing Studies Program.
