Earliest date to file the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov or FAFSA en Español. You may request a pin number for you and a parent prior to this date
If you are not applying for federal need-based aid or loans, please notify the Financial Aid Office in writing so that we can finalize your aid file for the academic year and award non-need-based aid.
January – February
Complete your FAFSA or Renewal application online based on your parents’ and your completed tax return for the preceding year. Save the information you used to complete the FAFSA and copies of your tax returns in case you are selected for verification.
February – May
Sign and return all necessary forms as requested by the Mary Baldwin College Financial Aid Office. The sooner your file is completed, the sooner you can be assured of your financial aid for the upcoming academic year. The “Missing Information” letters will continue at regular intervals until your file is complete. Students from Virginia should be sure that their Tuition Assistance Grant application is on file at the Financial Aid Office by July 31.
Priority FAFSA Deadline
The results of your aid application and, if selected, verification materials should be at the Financial Aid Office for the optimum aid package. Certain sources of aid, i.e., work-study jobs and college grant money, may be depleted after this date.
