Although you do not have to be accepted to Stephens College before applying for financial aid, you do have to be admitted to Stephens College before any financial aid can be awarded. You will be required to file a FAFSA each year you are a student at Stephens College in order to reapply for financial aid. Even if you are certain you will not qualify for need-based assistance, it is recommended that you file the FAFSA so that you may be able to qualify for aid in the event your financial situation changes.
