Financial Aid

A Mount Mercy education is one of the best investments you can make. In fact, 许多学生发现Mount Mercy的学费比该地区许多公立和私立学校都要便宜.

FAFSA and financial aid

You’ve heard these terms dozens of times. But why are they important? They are the key to getting money to help you pay for college.

  • State and federal grants (free money based on your family’s income)
  • Academic scholarships (more free money)
  • Work-study or other job (paid up to 20 hours/week)
  • Loans through the federal government or private lenders

How to file your FAFSA

The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

获得联邦学生资助的资格不能从一年延续到下一年, so you need to fill out the FAFSA each year you want federal aid to help with college costs. 尽快提交你的FAFSA,以最大限度地提高你收到的援助金额——有些奖项是先到后颁发的, first serve basis. 

  1. Go to studentaid.gov or
  2. Create an FSA ID for you and your parent/guardian
  3. Enter Mount Mercy’s FAFSA code: 001880

Filing your 2024-25 FAFSA

The U.S. Department of Education has made many changes and simplifications to the FAFSA this year. Because of this, the application will open later than usual—be prepared to take action after the soft launch on December 31, 2023. The form will be available periodically as they address issues, so check back frequently if you have any trouble. 

  • Though the application is delayed for the 2024-25 academic year, it will open on the traditional October 1 date in the future
  • FAFSA的最后期限不会改变——确保你在6月30日之前提交, 2025 deadline for entry in the 2024-25 academic year
  • The updated form will be easier to complete and includes several changes to how aid is calculated

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out! You can contact our Office of Financial Aid at 319-368-6467 or finaid@mpro-net.com 

The U.S. Department of Education has made many changes and simplifications to the FAFSA this year. Here are some of the main updates:

  • The form was simplified, reducing the number of questions you'll have to answer

  • 学生,他们的配偶,和所有的父母/监护人的税务数据报告必须有 their own FSA ID/StudentAid.gov account

  • Access was expanded for Federal Pell Grants

  • Larger Income Protection Allowances (IPA) 是否会导致学生或家庭收入能够支付大学学费的期望降低

  • Families are now required to report the value of their farms or businesses, which will impact how federal aid is calculated

  • There is no longer a benefit for siblings in college- FAFSA在确定援助金额时将不再考虑家庭中上大学的人数

The first step is to make sure everyone has their own StudentAid.gov account/FSA ID. The student and all contributors will need their own accounts, 因此,提前设置这些将简化你填写FAFSA的能力. 

  1. If you didn't submit a 2023-24 FAFSA form, make sure to create your StudentAid.gov account. 记住您的用户名和密码,以便在2024-25年FAFSA打开时填写!

  2. 了解你的父母/监护人或配偶是否需要根据你的情况提供供款人 dependency status

  3. 如果您的父母/监护人或配偶需要向您的表格提供资料,请确保每个提供资料的人 creates their own StudentAid.gov account
如果学生是受抚养人,并且他们的父母/监护人共同纳税, only one parent is required as a contributor and needs an FSA ID. If the student's parents/guardians did not file taxes jointly, both are considered contributors and must have their own FSA IDs. 

You'll fill out the 2024-25 FAFSA using tax information from 2022.

The FAFSA usually operates with the previous year's tax information. Even though the FAFSA is opening later than usual this year, make sure you use your 2022 tax information.

Due to this year's changes, the U.S. 教育部表示,从FAFSA向大学传递信息将会延迟.

我们预计在4月份发布传统本科学生的奖励通知. 在我们的集体项目的学生需要注册之前,经济援助奖将被发送.
