Financial Aid Process

This is a step-by-step process in applying for and accepting financial aid at Marygrove College. You may be redirected from this web site if you click on any of the links.

Step 1: File the FAFSA

Students must apply for financial aid by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the application for all federal, state and many Marygrove College financial aid programs. For maximum consideration for available aid programs, we recommend that every student file the FAFSA. It becomes available on October 1st every year. 
To begin, you should gather your FSA ID, social security number and your income information. You will also need your parent's information if you do NOT meet one of the following criteria:

  • You are under the age of 24
  • You are not working on an advanced degree (Master's, PhD, etc.)
  • You are not married
  • You do not have children that you support
  • You are not a veteran
  • Your parent(s) are living
  • You were not adopted nor in foster care by age 13

Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov and follow the instructions for completion. You may sign the FAFSA electronically if you and your parents (if applicable) have an FSA ID.   You may apply for an FSA ID at www.fsaid.ed.gov. Marygrove College Title IV School Code: 002284

Step 2: Review Your Student Aid Report (SAR)

You will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Federal Processor either by mail or email. Review this document for accuracy. Make corrections on the FAFSA website at www.fafsa.ed.gov , if necessary.

Step 3: Check for Missing Documents

When Marygrove College receives your FAFSA data, you will receive an email notification to your Marygrove email account.  The email will direct you to go to the WebAdvisor  My Documents page  where you will be able to view your FAFSA receipt date and documents required to complete your financial aid awarding.   If additional documents are required, they must be submitted before you will be awarded.

Step 5: Complete Your Loan Processing

To complete the processing of your federal student loans, you must complete Entrance Loan Counselling (first time borrowers ONLY) and sign the Direct Loan Subsidized/Unsubsidized Master Promissory Note (MPN).  If these steps are not completed, your loan will not be processed.   You may also complete this process before you have been awarded by clicking the link below. You must still accept your awards on WebAdvisor to complete the processing.   You will receive an email notification when your loan has disbursed to your student account.
