These pages provide an overview for filing the FAFSA, calculating family contributions, the academic requirements for maintaining federal financial aid and the necessary steps students should take upon finishing their education at Emory & Henry College.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the only document used to determine eligibility for federal financial aid. Information on filling out the FAFSA and the documents needed to complete it can be found here.
A student's award notice (the amount of federal financial aid students receive) is based on the cost of attendance less the family's expected contribution. The financial office prepares the award based on federal, state and institutional awarding policies and may include scholarships, grants and any eligibility for federal work study positions or student or parent loans.
With normal academic progress and a GPA of at least 2.0, students should graduate from the College in four years. However, situations do arise that can slow a student's progress. A minimum standard for continuance of federal financial aid is used to make allowances for the unforeseen in a student's life.
