Financial Aid Forms


 

2015 - 2016 Forms

The first step to apply for Federal Financial Aid is to complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA.

Requested forms must be completed in their entirety and submitted to one of the financial aid offices (Gadsden, Cherokee, McClellan or Ayers). All forms are not required for all students. Please access Self-Service Banner (SSB) on MyGadsdenState to review Financial Aid Student Requirements to determine which forms (if any) are applicable to you. Incomplete documents will be returned to the student for completion. Financial aid cannot be processed until ALL required documentation is received as complete. 

*** Please be certain to choose forms under the correct academic year based on the FAFSA filed (e.g., 2015-16 and/or 2016-17).

2016 - 2017 Forms

 

The first step to apply for Federal Financial Aid is to complete the 2016-2017 FAFSA.

Beginning with the 2016-2017 award year, the Gadsden State Financial Aid Office uses electronic form submission via MyGadsdenState. If a student does not wish to submit the required forms electronically, paper forms are available in the Gadsden State Financial Aid Office during business hours. Be aware that electing to submit paper forms could delay the processing of your financial aid.
