How to Apply for Aid


AID FOR THE 2014-2015 ACADEMIC YEAR

STEP 1:


INCOMING students, print the 2014 - 2015 INCOMING PUBLIC HEALTH STUDENT FINANCIAL AID CHECKLIST and use this tool to complete all the necessary financial aid steps. Additionally, please read the 2014 - 2015 Public Health Incoming Student Welcome Letter.

CONTINUING students should print the 2014 - 2015 Continuing Student PUBLIC HEALTH FINANCIAL AID CHECKLIST and use this tool to complete all the necessary financial aid steps.

STEP 2:

Apply for aid. For U.S. citizens and permanent residents, there are initially only two applications that need to be completed. They are:

  1. Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Refer below to "FAFSA on the Web" information.
  2. Tulane University School Public Health and Tropical Medicine 2014-2015 Financial Aid Addendum.
    (Please print the form, sign it and either mail it or fax it to us).

International students should only complete the Financial Aid Addendum.

FAFSA on the Web

Tulane's school code for the FAFSA is 002029.

We encourage applicants to use The U.S. Department of Education’S FAFSA on the Web because applying on the Internet offers several advantages over the traditional paper application.

  • It's fast — Students will get their application results in 5 to 7days.  
  • It's easy — Students are only asked the questions they need to answer. Questions that don't apply are skipped, making the Internet application quick to fill out. Extensive on-line help is also available. Application entries are edited thoroughly, reducing the number of errors made by students and their families when completing the online FAFSA.
  • It's secure — When FAFSA information is transmitted over the Internet, it is completely secure. The same technology that protects credit card transactions over the Internet is used to make sure that students' data remains confidential. Sending an application over the Internet is as safe as mailing a paper form.

STEP 3:

Check the Status of your Federal Application. Students can verify the status of their completed FAFSA by going to the web site www.fafsa.ed.gov and selecting from the “FAFSA follow-up” menu. FAFSA applicants can also call The Department of Education to check their status at their toll-free line (1-800-4 FED AID or 1-800-433-3243).

STEP 4:

The TUHSC Office of Financial Aid reviews your file. Your financial aid eligibility will be based on your FAFSA data and other application materials. Please refer to the section on calculating need for more details as well as our School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine Cost of Attendance information.

Randomly, applicants are selected by the federal processor for verification of information submitted on the FAFSA. Students selected will receive notification of such on on the Student Activity Report (SAR) that the Department of Education sends to you after your complete your FAFSA, as well as on the requirements page on Gibson Online. The documentation necessary for verification is one of the 2013 - 2014 Verification Worksheets (print the appropriate form, complete it, then sign it and mail it in). Additional documents may be required depending upon the information to be verified; please review the Verification Worksheet for details.

Students who were not required to file a federal tax return can complete the 2014-15 Student Non-Filer Form (print the form, then sign it and mail it in).
