Admissions + Aid

Financial Aid Award Letters

Award letters are mailed beginning in March to accepted students who have completed a 2014-2015 FAFSA and listed Emmanuel College on their FAFSA. Returning students who are registered for the Fall 2014 semester, have completed a 2014-2015 FAFSA and have a complete financial aid file are notified when their award is available to view on Online Academic Resources (OAR) via MySaints.

Estimated Awards
Estimated awards are based solely on self-reported information on the FAFSA and are subject to change pending the review of:

  • Verified income information on the FAFSA, using the IRS Data Retrieval tool, which electronically transfers your/your parent(s) income information from the IRS. To view how to update your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, please view our How To Apply for Financial Aid video. If you are not able to complete the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you may need to request IRS Tax Return Transcripts online at www.irs.gov or by calling 800- 908-9946. 
  • Other documentation as requested by the Office of Student Financial Services (OSFS).

Verification
If you enroll at Emmanuel and are awarded need-based aid, you must submit additional requested documents to the OSFS to finalize your award. All requested documents will be used to verify the information you provided on the FAFSA.

You will receive a verified financial aid award letter once the review of this documentation has been completed only if your award changes from the estimated award. The verified award will differ from the estimated award only if the information on the FAFSA is different from the information provided on the verification documents.
