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.
Students applying for federal and state financial aid programs must:
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.
What is an FSA ID?
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:
Florida Barber Academy
School code: 036114
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.
