All students applying for federal financial aid are required to complete the following steps in order for a financial aid package to be awarded:
- Attain admission to the college.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as found at
- Submit other documents if requested by the Office of Financial Aid.
Students who file the FAFSA may be selected for Verification. Additional information will be requested from students who are selected. Students must submit the required documents to the Office of Financial Aid
within 45 days of the request. The Office of Financial Aid cannot certify a Federal Stafford Loan application or authorize federal or state financial aid to be credited to a student’s account until Verification is complete. If the information
provided is different from the original application, the student’s need for assistance will be re-evaluated using the verified information.
All scholarships and grants administered directly by Hendrix are credited to the student’s account at the beginning of the semester or upon completion of Verification, if required. Scholarship, grant, and loan funds awarded by private
sources are not credited to the student’s account until the money is received by Hendrix. Earnings from work opportunities are paid directly to the student each month.
