It is recommended that the FAFSA is completed online at http://www.fafsa.gov. The online process ensures a higher rate of accuracy and quicker processing time. For students who filed a FAFSA for the previous year, your application may be pre-filled at the same website which can be even quicker. Shepherd University’s federal school code (003822) must be included so that the results will be sent to the Office of Financial Aid.
For the summer session, financial aid will be packaged once students are enrolled at least half-time (6 hours) and have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file for the current academic year. You must reapply for financial aid each year.
