Haverford College Codes
- Profile or College Board Code: 2289
- FAFSA or U.S. Department of Education Code: 003274
To be considered for Haverford College financial aid, you must:
You should only file the College Board Profile if you are seeking Haverford College Aid. You do not have to file the Profile if you are only applying for Federal Aid.
It is very important that your social security number be correct and consistent on both the FAFSA and the Profile Application to the College Board. The FAFSA is available Jan. 1 and must be filed by Feb. 1. Please do not wait until tax returns are completed or W-2 forms are available. Both the federal government and the College Board allow you to file the FAFSA and the Profile application before you have completed your tax returns. If you wish to apply for Federal funds only, you should not complete the Profile Application.
You do not have to file the FAFSA if you are an international applicant.
Responsibilities: Financial Aid awards are contingent upon the continued accuracy of information provided in the application forms. Students and parents are obliged to report to the Financial Aid Office any changes in personal or family finances (such as changes in income, assets, siblings in college) and any subsequent award of aid from sources other than the College.
The aid application is a joint venture of both you and your parents; please be sure that all parties have read and understood the instructions.
Anticipated Change in Income. If your parents’ 2016 income is anticipated to be significantly less (i.e. by 10% or more) than their actual 2015 income, they should request an Estimated Income Form from the Haverford Financial Aid Office. Please note that this same anticipated loss of income should also be reflected in the 2016 Expected Income and Benefits section of the Profile, with an explanation for the loss reported in the Profile’s Explanations/Special Circumstances section.
Haverford's FAFSA Code is 003274.
You must use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for the following Federal Student Aid Programs:
The 2016-2017 FAFSA must be filed with the federal government no later than April 20, 2015.
If you are a returning student who submitted a FAFSA in the previous school year, you may be eligible to complete a Renewal FAFSA. On the federal website, you can choose to have most of the FAFSA questions pre-filled with the basic information you provided before. However, the Renewal FAFSA is available solely for your convenience. If you prefer to start fresh with a new FAFSA, you are free to do so.
The FAFSA is available at www.studentloans.gov. To obtain help from the Federal Student Financial Aid Programs for the FAFSA, please call (800) 4 FED AID.
After you have filed the Profile, you will receive instructions from the College Board on how to submit tax returns and some supplementary forms using the Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC).
The College Board will collect the returns and forms at no cost to students and their families and make the information available on a secure server to Haverford College or any other college which contracts for this service. The instructions from the College Board will provide a cover sheet for you to use to send your information to IDOC. If you need additional copies of the cover sheet, have questions about the IDOC service, or the processing status of your family's documents, please call IDOC at (305) 420-3688.
Send to the College Board's IDOC Service
For help from the College Board for the Profile Application email email@example.com or call (305) 829-9793 (Telephone Service for the Deaf 1-800-915-9990).
International students who must file the College Board's International Student Financial Aid Application may obtain a copy of this form at their school (or from the link at our Financial Aid Forms page).
Haverford applicants are expected to apply for any state grant assistance for which they may be eligible. In practice, we expect all residents of Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia to apply to their respective state grant programs. We will estimate such outside awards in most cases and will not replace the estimated award with College funds if the student fails to file an application with the appropriate agency by their required deadline.
