The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the official document required for federal student aid at the University of Notre Dame. Priority processing and aid consideration are given to those who apply for financial aid by the deadline. However, you are encouraged to apply for financial aid if you miss the priority deadline.
Note that you will also need to file a FAFSA in early 2017 if you want to get financial aid to cover the portion of your tuition that will be charged in Summer 2017.
Visit FAFSA directly or from Notre Dame’s Office of Financial Aid website to apply for federal financial aid. A pre-application worksheet is available for your convenience to assist in walking you through this process.
Federal Financial Aid—Eligibility
In order to be eligible for federal financial aid, you must:
Be either a citizen, permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen of the U.S. with a valid Social Security Number.
Not owe a federal student grant, nor be in default on a federal student loan.
Maintain satisfactory academic progress.
International students are not eligible for federal financial aid.
The Financial Aid Process
How do you go about funding your education?
The financial aid process can be broken down into the following five easy steps:
1. Obtain Your PIN. Students wishing to apply for federal student aid at The University of Notre Dame are first advised to obtain their U.S. Department of Education PIN at pin.ed.gov. The PIN serves as an electronic signature for federal financial aid and provides access to federal financial aid records.
2. Complete the FAFSA. Once a PIN is obtained, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal FAFSA. Notre Dame’s Federal School Code is 001840.
3. Submit Your Income Tax Return. In addition to the FAFSA, students must be prepared to submit a signed copy of their previous year’s federal income tax return directly to the University’s Office of Financial Aid.
4. Receive an Award Letter. For those students who apply for financial assistance, the Office of Financial Aid will provide a Financial Aid Award Letter outlining the student’s eligibility for financial assistance.
5. Notify Us. Students must notify the Office of Financial Aid of the receipt of any financial assistance beyond that outlined on the Award Letter.
