Application Tips

Apply early and remember deadlines!
Financial aid budgets are limited. Priority will be given to students who meet deadlines.

Keep a copy.
It is unusual but sometimes things get lost. If you keep a photocopy of everything you send to the IRS, the federal processing center, and the Office of Student Financial Services, you will save yourself work and frustration if we request additional documents.

Ask questions if you don't understand.
During the busiest times in the office (spring and summer), electronic mail responses can be faster and more complete. Our address is finaid@marietta.edu.

Read instructions and respond in a timely manner.
We try to keep the financial aid process as easy as possible. If we ask you for something extra, it is because we need it to comply with regulations or to clarify something in your application. Accuracy and a quick response from you move the process along.

Follow through.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to make sure you finish your financial aid application. We will try to keep you up to date on your progress with reminders, but you are responsible to take action.

Re-application
Financial aid must be applied for every year. We will send a letter in January reminding you of the re-application process with deadlines. (Electronic filers: keep track of your PIN.)
