Rutgers University requires students to only file the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid
(FAFSA) or the
to be considered for Federal, State, and University assistance.
Students are strongly encouraged to file their
on the Web—the
fastest and most accurate method of applying for aid. Your
information is transmitted directly to the U.S. Department of
Education, and it eliminates the additional processing time
associated with a paper FAFSA.
Rutgers University’s School Code:
Which FAFSA to complete
Aid is NOT automatically renewable; students
must apply each school year for which they are requesting
for Fall 2010, Spring 2011 and Summer 2011
File the 2011-2012 FAFSA
for Fall 2011, Spring 2012 and Summer 2012 (PA
students beginning their program in June 2011 must complete
the 2011-2012 FAFSA).
2011-2012 FAFSA Deadlines
Continuing students must file the FAFSA by
March 15, 2011
to be considered for campus based assistance; those that file after
this date will be considered only if remaining funds are available.
State Aid: 2010-2011 NJ Tuition Aid Grant
(TAG) recipients must file their FAFSA no later than June 1, 2011
to be considered for 2011-2012 TAG.
Depending on the type of aid that is offered
to you, additional forms may have to be completed. For example,
Federal Loan borrowers must complete a Master Promissory Note, and
Federal Work-Study recipients would complete a Job Placement Form. Instructions on completing such forms will be included with your
Financial Aid Award Letter.
FAFSA filers can contact their high school
guidance counselor, the Office of Financial Aid (973-353-5151), or
the Federal Student Aid Information Center (800-433-3243). Electronic FAFSA filers can also chat
with a U.S. Department of Education customer service representative.
