Financial Aid Updates

Welcome to the Firelands Regional Medical Center School of Nursing financial aid information page. Check here regularly for the latest financial aid developments, announcements and important dates.

What's New?

Summer Refund Day will be May 28, 2015 (for students starting May 18)

Note: Nursing and Perkins loan funds will not be included in the May 18 refund.  These funds will be disbursed after July 1, 2015. 

 

2015-2016 FAFSA Available Online
If you wish to receive financial aid for the 2015-2016 academic year, you must complete the FAFSA online. You can complete the application any time after Jan. 1, 2015, but we recommend you wait until after your 2014 taxes have been completed so you can take advantage of the IRS tax Retrieval Tool that will automatically fill in your income information. Since the 2015 summer semester is part of the 2015-2016 award year, try to complete your FAFSA before March 1 so your financial aid will be available in May at the start of the semester. Note: You must complete the FAFSA each year to continue to receive any federal student aid funds including grants and student loans.

Our school code is 003114.
