Federal Student Aid 

We strongly encourage you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as it is used to determine student loans and work study.  Reinhardt's Federal School Code is: 001589.  Use only the official web address -- www.fafsa.ed.gov -- to access the FAFSA.  There are websites with addresses which are similar to www.fafsa.ed.gov which charge a fee to redirect you to the correct governmental site.  You will not be charged this fee if you use the official FAFSA site. 

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 expected family contribution (EFC).

  • Direct Student Loans

An undergraduate student may apply for a Federal subsidized and/or unsubsidized student loan to assist with education costs.  Subsidized loans are available to students who have financial need.  Unsubsidized loans are available to students who do not have financial need.  Financial need is based on information entered on the FAFSA.

  • Direct Parent Loans

The parents of an undergraduate dependent student may apply for this type of Federal loan to assist with education costs.

  • Federal Work Study

Students who would like to participate in the work study program must have financial need based on information entered on the FAFSA.
