Federal Student Aid
The U.S. Federal Government has many financial aid options to help offset the cost of an education.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application that determines eligibility for all Federal Aid, including:
- The Federal PELL Grant
- grant available to undergraduate students considered to have low-income from the information submitted on the FAFSA.
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG).
- grant available to students receiving the Pell Grant and calculated to have a zero EFC.
- Direct student loans.
- federal subsidize and/or unsubsidized student loan undergraduate students may apply for to assist with their education cost. Subsidized loans are available to students who have financial need. Unsubsidized loans are students loans available to those who do not have financial need. Financial need is based off the information entered on the FAFSA.
- Direct parent loans.
- federal loan that an undergraduate dependent student's parents may apply for to assist with the education cost.
- Federal Work Study.
- students who would like to participate in the work study program who have financial need based off the information entered on the FAFSA.
We strongly encourage you to complete the FAFSA as it is also used for student loans and work study. Reinhardt's school code is: 001589.
