Thomas More College is dedicated to making our education affordable for all qualified students. The financial aid process is considered the second step towards enrollment in the College. Only accepted students can be given a financial package by the College. If you still need to apply, simply return to the Admissions Process Overview page to get started.
All financial assistance offered by the College is determined by calculating the student’s demonstrated financial need. Financial need is determined by subtracting your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the total educational costs at Thomas More College. The EFC is derived from the information you report on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is the federal methodology for determining family contribution. Need-based financial assistance is awarded to help fill the gap that exists between your cost of attendance and your EFC.
The Financial Aid Office at Thomas More College will determine your eligibility for financial assistance and prepare an Award Summary for you, which is a combination of need-based institutional funds and federal financial assistance programs. In recent years, more than 90 percent of students enrolled at Thomas More College received some type of financial assistance. Thomas More College reserves the right to adjust financial aid awards in compliance with institutional policy and federal guidelines.
Upon completion of the FAFSA, some students are selected for a process called verification by the U.S. Department of Education. If you have been selected, the College will guide you through the process. If you would like to know if you have been selected, simply contact the College.
If your FAFSA was selected, the College will send you an Institutional Verification Document. Please complete, sign, and return it to the College.
You and/or your parent will be required to provide a copy of your IRS tax transcript.
Once these documents have been received and verified, the College will provide you with an award summary.
If you are accepting federal loans in your financial package, you must complete the following steps:
