Steps for Applying for Financial Aid

  • Step 1

    Complete the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

    You may submit your FAFSA by accessing the FAFSA via the WEB at www.fafsa.ed.gov after January 1, 2014

    Students are encouraged to use the IRS Tax Retrieval process when completing their FAFSA.

    Students completing the FAFSA with estimated income information will be required to correct their FAFSA with actual income information.

    The federal school code for Andover Newton is: G02116.

  • Step 2

    Complete the 2014-2015 Andover Newton Application for Financial Aid

    You may submit your school application by completing the application online at www.ants.edu after March 1, 2014

    Carefully consider the number of credits you are planning to take and any outside resources that you may be receiving during the year. This information is necessary in determining your eligibility.

  • Step 3

    The school will use the information obtained through the FAFSA and the school aid form to calculate your eligibility for scholarships and Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans. All forms must be completed and received by the Financial Aid Office prior to receiving a final financial aid award. In order to receive Andover Newton Financial Aid a student must be enrolled for at least 7.5 credits (3 classes) in the Fall and/or Spring semester. In order to receive a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan a student must be enrolled for at least 6 credits in the Fall and/or Spring semester. Students must be enrolled in a degree program in order to receive financial aid.

    New students and first time borrowers at Andover Newton will need to complete online Entrance Counseling which will teach you your rights and responsibilities as a borrower and a Master Promissory Note in order to receive a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. New students who have a Federal Direct Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note on file with the Department of Education will only need to complete entrance counseling.

    Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling may be completed at http://www.studentloans.gov. Students will need to have their PIN number available.

    Students selected for verification (the Department of Education randomly selects students for verification) must provide the following information.

    • Department of Education verification worksheet

      • If you used the IRS Tax Retrieval process when completing your FAFSA and did not make any changes to that information a 2013 tax transcript will not be necessary.
