The FAFSA opens sometime in December and must be submitted each year to be considered for federal, state, and some institutional financial aid. FAFSA determines your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). This is used as an index number to help determine your financial need. The EFC is then used to award financial aid such as grants, loans, and student employment.

Access the FAFSA form here. Make sure to create an FSA ID and password when you get to this page (one can be obtained at this link). Write these down, as you’ll need them again later! Have questions about the FAFSA? Visit this page.

FAFSA Verification Worksheets

Every year, the U.S. Department of Education selects about 22% of those who completed the FAFSA for verification. This doesn’t mean you did something wrong; they use verification to confirm that the household and tax data reported on your FAFSA is accurate.

In order to receive your offered financial aid, you must complete the verification process. George Fox reserves the right to select a student for verification who was not federally selected.

All verification forms can be submitted online or mailed. Please make sure to complete the forms corresponding to the correct aid year.

Here are instructions and forms you will need if you are selected:

2024-2025 Forms (Turn these in by May 1, 2024)

2023-2024 Forms (Turn these in by May 1, 2023)

FERPA Release of Information

George Fox takes your confidential information seriously. The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 protects the privacy of students’ confidential financial aid and educational records. There is some information that is not confidential under FERPA laws, but George Fox still needs students’ written consent to release those records.

Direct and Plus Loan Annual Student Loan Acknowledgement

The Annual Student Loan Acknowledgement is a yearly confirmation of your current federal Direct Loans and Plus Loans. It is required by the Department of Education before George Fox can disburse the loan to your student account.

Professional Judgment

We know that sometimes a family's financial situation is not accurately represented on the FAFSA. In these cases we may be able to consider a professional judgment. These professional judgment requests must be approved by the Professional Judgment Committee.
