Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA):

To apply for need-based financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and select the Federal School Code for Emmanuel: 002147.

Please note the following:

  1. The priority filing date for the 2022-2023 academic year is February 15, 2022 and the FAFSA will require 2020 income information. 
  2. To complete the FAFSA online, both the student and parent(s) need an FSA ID to access and electronically sign the FAFSA. To obtain an FSA ID please visit fsaid.ed.gov.
  3. To ensure the accuracy of income information and to prevent delays in processing, we encourage applicants to use the Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA to import tax information directly from the IRS into the FAFSA.
  4. If you have had significant financial changes since 2020, complete the FAFSA as instructed (provide 2020 income information) and contact our office to discuss the changes in more detail.
  5. Emmanuel does not require the CSS/Financial Aid Profile. Should additional information be required to determine a student's financial aid eligibility, the student will be notified by the Office of Student Financial Services.

Students who earn Emmanuel College merit scholarships and non-need-based awards are notified by the Office of Admissions in their acceptance packets. These awards include the Presidential Scholarship, Dean's Scholarship, Academic Achievement Scholarship and City of Boston Scholarship. The scholarship letter included with the acceptance packet provides scholarship details including amounts and renewal requirements.

In addition to merit-based scholarships, Emmanuel College offers the Saints Community Award to recognize the many ways we believe students will be a valuable addition to the Emmanuel community. Financial need is not considered when determining eligibility for this award and students are notified with the acceptance packet.

All students who complete the admission application by the published application deadline are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. No separate application is required for most scholarships.

Catholic High School Graduate Award

This $5,000 annual scholarship is given to graduates of Catholic high schools who enroll at Emmanuel College. The award recognizes a student's commitment to academics and service made throughout high school. No additional scholarship application is required but students must apply by February 15. Students are notified of their award upon admission to the College.

Scholarships are mutually exclusive; however, students receiving scholarships or awards may also be considered for need-based financial aid including federal, state and Emmanuel College grants and loans.
