About 80 percent of Hampton University students receive some form of
financial assistance. To make sure you receive the best possible financial aid award, we
ask that you remember the following:
- To complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible
after January 1st.
- To apply and submit the FAFSA electronically at
www.fafsa.ed.gov. We encourage all of our students
to apply no later than February 15th. Our priority processing date is February
15th. In order to meet this priority processing date, we must have a valid
expected family contribution (EFC) on file. Due to limited federal funds, we make no
guarantees or assurances that students with the lowest possible EFC (Pell-eligible) will
receive additional aid. All financial aid applications received after the February 15th
deadline, will be processed in the date order received.
- To be eligible to receive federal student financial aid, you must meet and maintain the
satisfactory academic progress policy toward a degree as defined by the Office of
Financial Aid and Scholarships.
- If applicable, you must satisfy all outstanding requirements affecting eligibility.
