“My primary reason for choosing Curry was convenience. Speaking practically, returning to school needed to be ‘doable’ for me. Curry offers a wide variety of courses at times that are suitable to working parents and that worked for me.”

Continuing Education Financial Aid Forms
Financial Aid Facts You Should Know
Curry College financial aid consists of grants and/or loans from the Federal government and state agencies as well as private loans from banks. By applying for financial aid, you are applying for consideration for all available types of federal and state assistance.
- Students must be admitted to a degree program in order to receive financial aid. For information on degree admittance, please email the Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies.
Financial Aid Process
The steps outlined for you below will guide you through the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application process. If you encounter any difficulties while you are completing your FAFSA, please call the Federal Processing Center at 1-800-4FEDAID (800-433-3243) for assistance.
Step 1. Apply for a PIN
Go to www.pin.ed.gov to apply for a personal identification number (PIN) to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you are a dependent student, your parent will also need to apply for a PIN.
Step 2. File a FAFSA
Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov to file the 2014-2015 FAFSA. To ensure that we will receive your information you must enter Curry College's Federal School Code of 002143 in step six of the online form. To expedite the award process, check the IRS Data Retrieval option. After Curry College receives your information, additional documentation may be required. You will be notified by mail. If you intend to use financial aid to pay the tuition, it is recommended that students complete the FAFSA no later than two weeks prior to starting classes.
Step 3. File Financial Aid Enrollment Information Worksheet 2014-2015
You must complete a Continuing Education Enrollment Information Worksheet 2014-2015 in order for our college to determine your financial aid eligibility. This form can be returned by fax or mail to SFS .
Step 4. Curry College will mail your financial aid package
Once your FAFSA is complete and you have been admitted to a degree program, a financial aid award package will be mailed to you detailing the types of aid and amounts for which you are eligible. If you receive any type of outside financial assistance, you must inform Student Financial Services.
Step 5: Register for Classes
After you receive your financial aid award, please contact the Division of Continuing Education and Graduate Studies to register for classes. Academic advisors are available to assist you with selecting courses.
Renewing Financial Aid
You must reapply for financial aid annually by completing the FAFSA and submitting an Enrollment Verification Form for the academic year for which you are applying for financial aid.
Approximately 30% of financial aid applicants are selected for verification by the federal government's processor. Verification is the process in which a college confirms the accuracy of the data you reported on your FAFSA. The processor applies a series of edit checks, which are required by federal financial aid regulations, to each FAFSA. These edit checks can cause some applications to be selected for verification. Additionally, the federal processor randomly selects for verification a small percentage of all financial aid applications. If your application is selected for verification, you must complete the verification process before your eligibility for financial aid can be determined, and before financial aid can be awarded to you.
If you are selected for verification by the federal government, you will be required to submit a signed federal tax return 1040 and W2's for yourself and, if applicable, your spouse or your parent if you were required to provide their information on the FAFSA. You will also need to complete a Curry College Verification Form. Additional information may also be required.
Once the Student Financial Services Office has received all of the required paperwork, we will award need-based financial aid to those who are eligible and we will send a letter to your home address detailing the award. Generally we do this within two weeks of receiving all required paperwork as long as you have been admitted in to a degree program. Award letters are mailed to students on a rolling basis beginning early June.
Eligibility for need based financial aid will depend on the information from the FAFSA and your enrollment status. You must be enrolled at least halftime (6 credits per semester) to be eligible for most forms of federal financial aid like the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) or the Federal Direct Stafford Loan Programs. There is no minimum credit requirement for Federal Pell Grants. For additional information about Federal financial aid programs view the U.S. Department of Education Student Guide.
If you are a veteran of the armed forces, you may be eligible for funding from the Veteran's Administration (VA). Please contact the College's Veteran's Certifying Official located in the Registrar's Office during normal business hours with any questions you may have about your eligibility for VA funding.
