Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA)

Students must file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to be considered for federal financial aid. It is available beginning October 1st for the following academic year. The government uses information in the FAFSA and a federal formula to determine the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Access the FAFSA at fafsa.gov. Students will need an FSA ID and password to complete the FAFSA. One can be obtained at fsaid.ed.gov. More information about the FAFSA and federal aid is available at studentaid.gov. For tips on completing the FAFSA, watch How to Fill Out the FAFSA.

Once the FAFSA is complete, the student and Warner Pacific (if listed on the FAFSA) receives a Student Aid Report. The school code for Warner Pacific is 003225.

Loan Borrowing Requirements

The FAFSA provides eligibility to borrow loans.  Part of a student’s Federal financial aid award includes Federal Stafford Loans. If the student chooses to borrow loans to assist with paying for the cost of education, the student must complete two steps to receive the loan funds.

  1. Federal Stafford Loan Entrance Counseling: Students who have never borrowed Federal Stafford Loans in the past will need to complete this counseling online at studentaid.gov.
  2. Master Promissory Note: This Loan Agreement is completed by the student to indicate their intent to repay the loans after leaving school or dropping below half-time enrollment.
