How to apply for financial aid

Early and orderly planning is important for receiving financial assistance.

  1. Apply for admission. A student must be admitted to the college before a financial aid offer is made.
  2. Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning Oct. 1. Students should specify 001799 as the code number for Goshen College.
  3. The federal processor will send a Federal Student Aid Report (SAR) to you. Review this form for accuracy and make any necessary changes.
  4. Respond promptly to any financial aid or admission requests for additional information or documentation.
  5. After receiving and processing the results of your FAFSA and additional information, and after you’ve been accepted for admission, we will send you a Financial Aid Award letter describing the aid you are eligible to receive.

Graduate Housing

Graduate students are responsible for organizing their own housing during the program. Some housing is available for rent on site at Merry Lea. We have two farmhouses that have been extensively renovated and come with high speed wifi. Everything is included in the cost of rent, which is about $325/month depending on accommodations.

Some students have rented in Wolf Lake, others have lived in Goshen or other towns within a 30-45 minute commute.
