In order to apply for financial aid at UNH Manchester, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must reapply for financial aid each academic year by completing a new FAFSA.
The FAFSA asks for information regarding the student and the student's parents' financial situation, if the student is considered dependent as established by the FAFSA.
The 2016-2017 FASFA requires information from your 2015 tax return (and your parents' or spouses' tax return). While it is better to have completed your taxes prior to completing the FAFSA, it is encouraged that you file an application with estimated information in order to meet the priority deadline. You can later update the FAFSA once you have filed your tax return at a later date using the Data Retrieval Tool.
Students will receive an email from UNH Manchester indicating that an award is ready to view on WebCat. This lists the types of aid that they qualify for as soon as they have completed the financial aid process and have been accepted in to a degree program. The student may accept all, none or a portion of the aid that is awarded to them.
If you believe you have unusual family circumstance that is not reflected on the FAFSA, you may complete and submit the Special Circumstance Form to the UNH Manchester Financial Aid Office.
If you have questions about the financial aid application and award process or about your award, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
