Step 2: Plan!

Your Financial Aid Package

Once Immaculata receives your completed FAFSA, the Office of Financial Aid will send you a financial aid package. In this package will be a letter with details about funding offered and requests for any required additional documentation.

If you choose to reject any of the aid offered to you, send notification to the Office of Financial Aid in writing or via e-mail.

 

The Verification Process

Thirty percent of all students who complete a FAFSA are randomly selected by the Department of Education to complete a process called verification.  This process is used to validate the information completed on your FAFSA.  You will receive notification via your Student Aid Report (SAR) as well as on your financial aid package if you have been selected for this process. Students who were not selected for this process do not need to submit the information below.

If you are selected for verification, you must submit all your IRS Tax Return Transcripts, W-2s, and the verification worksheet. You can request your transcripts directly from the IRS on www.irs.gov.

Since this process could impact the amounts of aid awarded, the Office of Financial Aid suggests submitting this information as soon as you decide to attend Immaculata University.

 

Additional Aid

In addition to the aid offered by Immaculata and the state and federal governments, many organizations offer excellent scholarships, grants, and other forms of financial assistance. Students interested in researching free outside scholarship opportunities can do so at www.fastweb.com or www.educationplanner.org.

If at any time you receive additional aid, federal regulations require you to notify the Office of Financial Aid.  If an “over-award” (funds received in excess of your calculated financial need) results due to the additional funding, the Office of Financial Aid must make appropriate changes to your financial aid package. A revised award letter will be sent to you with the details of your new financial aid package.
