Federal Financial Aid 

Students seeking financial aid should review their eligibility for Federal Financial Aid below. If eligible, students may apply for Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loans, Graduate Federal PLUS Loans, and Alternative Loans. 

 

Eligibility

To be eligible to receive federal student financial aid, students must meet the following criteria:

  • 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 

To determine the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive, you must first file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1. The Stephens College FAFSA code is 002512

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.

Financial aid assistance is dependent upon satisfactory academic progress according to the Stephens College Financial Aid SAP policy.

 

Employer Tuition Reimbursement

If you are employed, you may be eligible for employer reimbursement for education or training from your current employer. Students should check with their manager or human resource staff for possible benefits. Employer reimbursement is solely between the student and the employer. The student is responsible for making regular payments on account balances with Stephens College, and any remaining balance must be paid in full prior to beginning a new semester.

 

Billing

Please note that all student accounts are due one week before classes begin. Students are encouraged to set up a payment plan or make a payment via our secure site, stephens.afford.com.
