To receive financial aid, Graduate Online students are required to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This can be done online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Graduate Online students must to be enrolled in at least 12 credits per semester in order to be eligible for full Financial Aid funding from the Department of Education.
By filing the FAFSA, Graduate students may be eligible for Stafford Unsubsidized loans. (Graduate students are not eligible Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, or Subsidized loans). Due to discounted tuition costs, Grace’s Traditional institutional scholarships are not offered to online students.
To complete the FAFSA, online students must first register for an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov. This allows students to electronically sign the FAFSA application. FAFSA Tech Support number is 1(800) 443-3243. The Federal School Code for Grace Christian University is 002265.
After completing a FAFSA, a Graduate student may be eligible to borrow Federal Stafford Loans from the Dept. of Education. If eligible, they will only be offered Unsubsidized loans, as Subsidized loans are not available to Graduate Students. (Unsubsidized loans are charged interest while the student is in school.)
Graduate students also have the choice to borrow a Private Graduate Loan from a private lender. To search for a lender and apply, simply visit www.elmselect.com and search for Grace Christian University Graduate Loans.
