**Fall 2013 Applicants: Beginning with the 2013-14 award year, the financial aid office will no longer require federal tax returns of all families. We reserve the right to request full or partial returns in certain cases. You will be notified by letter and email if federal tax returns are needed. The request will also be listed in each student’s individual account on the Hub.
2. Fill out all the required forms.
3. Fill out any other required supplemental forms.
4. Make Sure You Haven't Missed Anything.
You and your parents must complete all of the necessary forms. Remember that different forms are submitted to different places, and that you must allow for sufficient mail and processing time to meet deadlines. We strongly suggest that you keep a copy of everything you submit.
It is important for students to use the same name and correct Social Security number on all application materials. The name used must match the name on the Social Security card. Please put the student's name on the top of each form you submit to our office.
Applicants who do not receive aid at the time of admission must be prepared to pay for the first two semesters of enrollment. The earliest that we can accept a new application will be for the second year of enrollment. Financial aid is not available for students who seek a second bachelor's degree.
Students may check the status of their financial aid application and forms needed to complete it by accessing the HUB at thehub.hampshire.edu. Please allow two weeks for processing.
