The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed every year in order to receive Federal Student Aid.
FAFSA is updated every year by the U.S. Department of Education and is available for the upcoming academic year after October 1. The academic year begins July 1st and ends June 30th the following year.
It is strongly recommended students sign the FAFSA on-line by using the Federal Student Aid ID. Both students and their parents (if applicable) can obtain a PIN.
To ensure Shenandoah University receives your FAFSA, be sure to list our Federal School Code: 003737.
The FAFSA must be filed each academic year in order to be considered for financial aid, with the exception of Shenandoah University’s academic scholarships.
Once we have received the results of your FAFSA, we will begin the process of determining your eligibility for financial aid. You will receive your awards electronically via Hornet Hub in late spring/early summer. When your award package is ready to view, you will receive an email from our office prompting you to accept your aid electronically. Please allow our office 1-2 business days to process electronic acceptances of your financial aid awards. Delays in accepting your aid could adversely affect the availability of your financial aid.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (540) 665-4538.
