Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. Federal Student Aid is awarded on a need basis for each applicant. Need is determined by evaluating the information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Factors such as income, assets, and benefits are considered in determining the student’s financial needs.
a. Have a financial need.
b. Be a citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
c. Be enrolled in an eligible program of study.
d. Not be in default on any National Direct Student Loan, Guarantee Student Loan or owe a refund on any Title IV Grants at any institutions previously attended.
e. Must be registered with selective service if a male student.
f. Have a valid High School Diploma/GED if qualify under the Career Pathway (ATB) results with a passing score.
Students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the U.S. Department of Education’s Central Processing System (CPS), if you want to be considered for federal and state financial aid.
An FSA ID is comprised of a username and password that you create. Your FSA ID allows you to access your federal student aid information online and is used to log in to many U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites, including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov, and the TEACH Grant website. Your FSA ID must be kept secure and never shared with anyone.
* You can use your FSA ID to sign a FASFA right away. Once the Social Security Administration verifies your information in one to three days, or if you have linked your PIN to your FSA ID, you will be able to use your FSA ID to access the website listed above. For help regarding this, visit: StudentAid.gov/fsaid
The FASFA is available in paper and electronic formats. You can get the paper version by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID. We encourage students to fill out a web-based version of the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. In order for our Institution to be able to receive the application you must add the school name and school code:
Urban Barber College
School code: 042700
After the application is completed, it is sent to the Department of Education FAFSA Processor. The data input will then be sent to the Central Processing System (CPS) to calculate the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and match the student’s data against a number of databases, such as the Social Security Administration’s citizenship database, Selective Service, Veteran’s Affairs, etc. After all processing is complete, you will receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) in about 4 – 6 weeks after submitting a paper application, 1-5 days after submitting a web based application and the institute will receive an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) in the same time period. FBA will review the ISIR or SAR produced by CPS.
A Federal Pell Grant is a free grant that does not have to be repaid. The student must complete the FAFSA in order to determine eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant. If the student is eligible for a Pell Grant, the award amount eligibility ranges from a minimum of $652 to maximum of $6,345 for the 2020-2021 award year.
Student loans, unlike grants, are borrowed funds that must be repaid with interest. Loans made through this program are referred to as Direct Loans. Eligible Students and parents borrow directly from the U.S. Department of Education. There are three types of loans in the program:
