You've successfully submitted your 2014-2015 Financial Aid Application to Bethel University.
What's next? Apply for additional aid.
If you want to be considered for all types of financial aid, like need-based grants and loans, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Learn more about completing your FAFSA. Note: The FAFSA for the 2014-2015 academic year is available beginning January 2014 and requires information from your 2013 Federal Income Tax Return.
Plus, there are additional grants and scholarships that require separate applications. Pay close attention to the deadlines.
Don't forget to research private or community-based scholarships.
When does Bethel begin awarding?
We'll begin awarding financial aid in March for the coming fall. Typically, students receive their award within 2 weeks of submitting all required application materials. During the months of April and May, returning student awards may take slightly longer as new students take priority.
Have you submitted all your financial aid forms?
With your Bethel Community Account, you can check the status of your financial aid requirements anytime online through Blink [Student Services tab > Financial Aid Requirements channel]
Do you have special circumstances that affect your finances?
Eligibility for need-based financial aid is based on information collected in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA does not recognize unusual (i.e., not typical for a family in a normal year) and non-discretionary (i.e., out of one's control) situations. Learn about what special circumstances qualify you for financial aid eligibility reviewed.
Are you recently married?
If you were married after 12-31-2013, send a copy of the marriage license to the financial aid office.
