The only way to determine your eligibility is to submit an application for financial aid. Many factors are considered in determining your eligibility.
You need to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available online.
Daemen College recommends that entering First Year Students (beginning with the 2017/18 academic year) complete their FAFSA no later than November 15.
The Financial Aid Office will send you a financial aid award letter.
Beginning with the 2017/18 FAFSA students and parents will report income information from your "prior 2015 tax year" so this should not be an issue for you since your tax return filing should have already been completed. If your situation is unique and you have not completed your 2015 tax return you can still complete your FAFSA using estimated income figures. FAFSA allows you to indicate that the income information is estimated.
Yes. After your first year, you will receive a "Renewal Application" which contains preprinted information from the previous year's FAFSA. Your eligibility for financial aid may change significantly from year to year.
If your parents are separated or divorced, the custodial parent is responsible for completing the FAFSA. The custodial parent is the parent with whom the student lived with most during the past 12 months. This is not necessarily the same parent who has legal custody.
Please contact our Financial Aid Office in writing so that we can examine your specific situation to determine its impact on your aid eligibility.
