Financial Aid Announcements

2019-2020 FAFSA Available

The 2019-2020 FAFSA can be completed at fafsa.gov for students attending summer 2019, fall 2019, and/or spring 2020. The deadline is January 15, 2019 for priority consideration of financial aid for all undergraduate students. Students and parents (if applicable) will use 2017 tax information on the 2019-2020 FAFSA. St. John Fisher College's Federal School Code is 002821. The 2018-19 FAFSA is still available for students attending fall 2018 or spring 2019.

Accepting Aid

If you have been awarded Federal Work Study, a Federal Direct Student Loan, and/or a Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, you must log on to Fish 'R' Net to accept, decline, or accept partial amounts of these awards. First time student loan borrowers will also need to complete entrance counseling and a loan agreement (MPN) at Studentloans.gov. Parents interested in borrowing the Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan must apply for the loan at Studentloans.gov.

Fall Graduating Students

All undergraduate and graduate students that borrowed federal loans (Perkins, Subsidized/Unsubsidized. and/or Graduate PLUS) and/or received the TEACH Grant are required by the federal government to complete exit counseling. Go to Studentloans.gov to complete exit counseling. The link for Perkins loan exit counseling will be emailed to your Fisher email address. Verification of compliance will be automatically sent to the College. More information can be found on the exit information wepage.

Enhanced Tuition Award (ETA) Update

After careful review of the ETA Program, St. John Fisher College has chosen not to participate for the 2018-19 academic year. We intend to review this option annually. It has been central to our mission to provide access to all students, and that remains a priority. We will continue to leverage our institutional resources as well as other state and federal resources to aid our students and to make a Fisher education affordable.
