Step 1: Complete the FAFSA

The FAFSA is used by the U.S. Department of Education to determine eligibility for financial aid from federal and state governments.

Apply for a Federal Student Aid FSA ID at www.fafsa.gov. 

Note: Parents of dependent students must apply for their own FSA ID if they do not have one.

The FAFSA application is available as of October 1.

An alternative to submitting an application online is applying via the FAFSA app, which can be accessed through the app store on your mobile device (search "myStudentAid").

  • The Stonehill College Federal School Code is 002217.
  • Aid eligibility is based on income data from your federal tax filings from two years prior to the academic year.
  • Utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, if eligible, to accurately import your tax information into your FAFSA.
  • Read and print a copy of the Student Aid Report.
  • Never pay to complete the FAFSA - it is free!

Step 2: Submit the Stonehill College Institutional Financial Aid Application

Stonehill College collects additional financial information through our own Institutional Financial Aid Application in order to best understand every applicant's financial need, and to ensure that our institutional aid resources are awarded in a fair and equitable manner to students who truly need financial assistance.

The Stonehill College Institutional Financial Aid Application will be made available to you in your Stonehill Applicant Status Portal once we have received your application for admission, which should be submitted through the Common Application. The form should be completed in its entirety using the same information students submit in their filing of the FAFSA.
