FINANCIAL AID

Financial Aid

A college education is an important investment. At Warner, we want to make tuition costs manageable with the help of financial aid.

There are three main steps involved in completing your Financial Aid process.

  • Step One: Complete your FAFSA
  • Step Two: Complete the Financial Aid process
  • Step Three: Complete your payment arrangements
Step One: Complete Your FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility for federal, state and Warner aid. 

Completing the FAFSA:

  • Both student and parent will be required to create an FSA ID.
  • In order to complete the FAFSA, you will need to have access to your 2018 tax information. The easiest way to do this is by using the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) within the FAFSA. 

College Code (Warner): 008848

Step Two: Complete the Financial Aid Process

Complete Verification

Many students are selected for verification.  It is a process used by the government to confirm that the data reported on the FAFSA is accurate. 

Students are selected for verification for multiple reasons.  Do not worry!  The steps to complete this are usually very easy and we will guide you through this process.  The Financial Aid office will send all required documents to be completed and returned.  They can also be accessed here:

If you were not able to use the Data Retrieval Tool to transfer your income information directly to the FAFSA, you will need to provide either:

 

  1. 2018 tax return transcripts or non-filing statement (contact irs.gov or call 800-908-9946), or
  2. Signed 2018 tax return (Form 1040)

Loans and Work Study

Loans

Many students take out loans to help fund a portion of their educational expenses.  Loans must be repaid, so plan your finances carefully and borrow only what you think you can afford to repay.

 

Work Study

Federal and state work study funds provide aid in exchange for work for eligible students, in the form of campus-based employment.
