How Financial Aid is Determined

Students who need financial aid are expected to apply for and accept all Federal and State government grants, loans, and employment scholarships for which they are eligible.

The Financial Aid Office will review the FAFSA of each student and inform the student of any additional awards for which they are eligible. The award may be accepted by the student or appealed to the Financial Aid Appeals subcommittee. The committee will consider such items as the student’s financial need, special circumstances, academic record, timeliness of application, full use of Federal and State awards, and funds available in making a decision to increase the amount of Shimer College aid.
