How to Apply for Financial Aid - Continuing Students

Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans are processed every two semesters. It's important for you to keep record of your Financial Aid award and be aware of when the next semester application is due. The Financial Aid Office will do our best to notify you when it is time to apply, but do not depend on us alone. Check with our office if you are unsure of when to apply.

For students who had a Spring 2014/Fall 2014 loan, it is time to re-apply for the Winter 2015/Spring 2015 (January through April) loan. To do this you need to:

  • Complete a 2014-2015 FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov

  • Print complete and submit the Winter 2015/Spring 2015 Financial Aid Certification Form

    * If you (or your parents) will be filing a 2013 income tax return with the IRS, it is recommended that you complete it before filling out the 2014-2015 FAFSA. The easiest way to complete or correct your FAFSA with accurate tax information is by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool through www.fafsa.gov. Please note that it takes up to two weeks for IRS income information to be available for electronic IRS tax return filers, and up to eight weeks for paper IRS tax return filers.
  • Please complete the Direct Loan Master Promissory Note if you did not already do so during the previous application period - (www.studentloans.gov)

  • If this will be your first student loan at Pacific College, you will also need to complete Entrance Counseling – (www.studentloans.gov)
