  1. How do I apply for financial aid?

    To apply for financial aid you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by logging into the federal website at www.studentaid.gov. You and your parent will need to create an FSA User ID and Password that will allow you to electronically sign the FAFSA. Be sure to add our federal school code of 025688 on the form. Once you submit your form, it is processed and sent to the school. We will reach out to you via your Sussex Email account regarding documents needed and the amount of financial aid for which you qualify.
  2. How much financial aid will I receive?

    The amount of grants you receive will depend on the EFC or Expected Family Contribution that is listed on your Student Aid Report (SAR). This form is sent to you by the Department of Education once your FAFSA is processed. If you are a NJ resident, you will also be contacted by the NJ Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (NJHESAA) and asked to log into their NJFAMS website to view any grant funds for which you may qualify. You will need to create another User ID and Password to access their website at https://njfams.hesaa.org.
  3. How do I apply for a student loan?

    As a new borrower you will need to complete three steps the first time around:
    a. Go to www.studentaid.gov and sign in using your FSA User ID and Password, select COMPLETE AID PROCESS, and then select COMPLETE ENTRANCE COUNSELING for an UNDERGRADUATE student. Keep a copy for your records. We will be notified electronically.
    b. Next, on the same website, complete the MASTER PROMISSORY NOTE for the Federal Direct Student Loan for an UNDERGRADUATE student. Keep a copy for your records. We will be notified electronically.
    c. Complete and submit to the Financial Aid Office the Federal Direct Loan Request Form indicating the amount you wish to borrow for the year. The completed form can be submitted to the Financial Aid Office via US Mail or emailed to FAdocs@sussex.edu.
  4. How do I get a book allowance?

    You will receive an email to your Sussex email account instructing you on how to order your books through eCampus approximately two weeks before the start of the semester. Books can be shipped right to your home address. Financial aid cannot be used to purchase your books until your financial aid file is complete and if selected for federal or state verification, all documents have been received and reviewed.
  5. When will I get my refund check?

    Financial aid in excess of your tuition, fees and books/supplies charged to your account through eCampus, will be refunded to you once all attendance is confirmed by the faculty, your financial aid file is complete and if selected for federal or state verification, all documents have been received and reviewed. We strongly urge you to enroll in ERefund through your CashNet account so funds can be applied directly into your bank account. By eliminating a paper check, this will shorten the wait time for your refund.
