Financial aid funds are always limited. To guarantee fairness in awarding institutional funds, Sewanee combines three factors when determining how to allocate institutional need-based aid:
Students wishing to apply for only federal student aid funds must submit the FAFSA. The 2018-19 FAFSA will be available October 1, 2017. Sewanee's school code for FAFSA is 003534.
First-time need-based aid applicants must submit the CSS Profile. The 2018-19 CSS Profile will be available after October 1, 2017. Sewanee's school code for the Profile is 1842.
It is important to understand that the responsibility for financing the cost of a higher education must be primarily assumed by students and/or their families to the extent of their ability. To this end, a number of the aid programs administered by the Office of Financial Aid are awarded first and foremost on the basis of calculated need-based eligibility. Need-based awards are considered to supplement, not replace, the family’s obligation in financing the student’s education.
