Who Should Apply for Financial Aid?
If you feel that your family will be unable to meet the cost of an Albright education with family resources alone, you should apply for financial aid. Financial aid is awarded to students based on their family?s demonstrated financial need. Students who receive scholarships are also eligible for financial aid. In fact, most scholarship and award recipients also receive need-based financial aid.
At some colleges, admission decisions are influenced by whether an applicant applies for financial aid. Albright?s admission decisions are independent of requests for financial aid.
How Do I Apply?
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for financial aid at Albright College. These forms are in guidance offices, libraries, Financial Aid Offices, or you can call 1-800-4-FED-AID. An electronic version of the FAFSA is on the web at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. When you complete the FAFSA, be sure to indicate that the form be sent to Albright College, code number 003229.
The FAFSA is available each year in November for the next fall.
- Submit the FAFSA form as soon as possible after January 1st.
- In order to qualify for the full range of financial aid programs, we recommend that students complete the FAFSA by March 1.
- Students who wish to be considered for Pennsylvania State Grant funds are required to submit the FAFSA prior to May 1. The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency Grant Division strictly enforces this deadline.
It usually takes four to six weeks after you mail your form for Albright to receive an electronic statement detailing your information.
