Financial Aid

Financing Your Education in 5 Steps…

1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)*.
Have your FSA ID ready. If you have not created an FSA ID, you can create one by going here. Complete your FAFSA and use the Granite State College code 031013. Tip! Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer your tax information from the IRS. You will receive your estimated financial aid award and/or missing requirement notification within 2 weeks. Awards will be issued beginning in early May.

2. Complete your admissions application.
Once processed, this will give you access to WebROCK to move forward with your financial aid.

3. Check WebROCK often for any additional requirements. (WebROCK login support)
Requirements will vary from student to student and may include submitting an extra document or two, or you might find that you’ve been chosen for Verification. Your award may change as a result of the Verification process, so check WebROCK for updates and respond to any changes. All additional documents must be submitted before any financial aid can be finalized. 

4. Complete Federal Student Loan requirements, if applicable. For all new GSC student federal loan borrowers, complete the following two steps in order to begin classes:

5.  Your Award. Our goal is to award tuition, fees, and books for two classes per term for those who are eligible. We assume you accept all loans and grants as offered, unless you inform us in writing otherwise. Awards will be adjusted down for actual enrollment at the time of disbursement unless we are otherwise notified via the Award Revision Request. Please complete an Award Revision Request form if you wish to: decline all or a portion of your loans, are requesting aid for more than 8 credits, or are attending fewer terms or classes than are reflected on your award. Please allow sufficient time for us to process these change requests. Typically, changes are completed in 3-5 business days. During peak times, the 3 weeks prior to each term start, processing times may be longer.

*In order to receive Federal financial aid, you must be enrolled in an eligible degree or post-baccalaureate program at Granite State College. In order to receive financial aid, you also need to be achieving Satisfactory Academic Progress.
