Fall/Spring Returning Student Aid

Graduate School of Nursing students returning in the next academic year must reapply each year for financial aid. It’s a good idea to gather the appropriate documents and resources before you begin the application process for the new year. Your PIN number, tax returns, W-2 forms, other records of money earned, and bank statements will be needed.

Apply for Financial Aid in One Easy Step

Complete the Renewal FAFSA

You need to complete the Renewal FAFSA. Complete and submit the Renewal FAFSA beginning October 1, 2019. The FAFSA is required to determine eligibility for federal and state student aid. 

You will have fewer questions to answer for 2020–2021 because the Renewal FAFSA will contain some of the information you gave on the 2019–2020 FAFSA. Updates will be needed only for the information that has changed from the prior year.

Get started on the Renewal FAFSA
Emory’s FAFSA Code:

In October or November 2019, all renewal eligible FAFSA applicants will receive 2020–2021 Renewal FAFSA reminder notices from the Department of Education:

  • Students with a valid email address will receive email reminders.
  • Students without a valid email address will receive reminder letters.

If you are a returning student and did not file a 2019–2020 FAFSA, you will not receive a reminder notice. You must submit the 2020–2021 FAFSA to be considered for financial aid.

Financial Aid Award Notification

After your file has been reviewed and your financial aid eligibility determined, you will receive an email notifying you that your award package is available. Your award notification will be sent to your email address marked as preferred within OPUS. After the financial aid process, Student Financial Services is responsible for the management of all business related to the student financial account including the billing and collection of all student charges, disbursement of financial aid, and more.
