Loans and Payment Plans

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. The code number for Goshen College is 001799.
  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.

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.

Contact Dr. David Ostergren with questions about tuition, housing or other costs.
