Growing up in a suburban town outside of Boston, going to college in the city had always been a goal for Jake. After touring Emmanuel's campus he felt it had the perfect mixture of “small campus feel and big city appeal.”
The Office of Student Financial Services (OSFS) offers helpful information and links on applying for financial aid at Emmanuel College.
To apply for need-based financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. Please note the following:
Emmanuel College Endowed and Restricted Scholarships are funded by alumni and friends of the College based on criteria established by the donor. Most Endowed Scholarships are reserved to provide additional financial support to currently enrolled students.
By submitting one application (see link below) you will be considered for all of the available Endowed Scholarships. The priority deadline for the 2020-2021 application is February 15, 2020. After our priority deadline, all applications will be reviewed. Should you be matched with an Endowed Scholarship, you will be notified in your 2020-2021 Financial Aid Letter and asked to write a letter of appreciation to the Scholarship donor.

To apply for need-based financial aid, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. The priority filing date is February 15th for the following academic year.
2. Is my financial aid renewable?
Yes, merit scholarships and awards are renewable with full-time enrollment for a maximum of eight semesters.

The FAFSA becomes available for the following academic year on October 1st and the priority filing date is February 15th. Merit scholarships are automatic renewed for a maximum of eight semesters provided the requirements outlined in your scholarship notification letter are met.
4. What is the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA?
The IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA allows you and/or your parent(s) to import tax information directly into the FAFSA from the IRS.
5. Do I need to submit any other documents in addition to the FAFSA?
Most students only need to submit the FAFSA to apply for financial aid, however in some instances additional information may be required. If additional information is needed to finalize your financial aid award, you will be contacted by Student Financial Services. Emmanuel does not require the CSS Profile application.
6. I have been asked to submit my tax return transcripts, where can I obtain them?
You may request copies of your official federal tax return transcript at www.irs.gov or by calling 1-800-908-9946.
