Policies & FAQ

FAFSA

联邦学生援助免费申请(FAFSA)是联邦学生经济援助的申请. The results of the FAFSA determine your eligibility for federal grants, such as the Pell and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, and loans. Through filing the FAFSA each year, a Student Aid Index (SAI) will be determined. This index is an indicator of your financial need. In addition to determining how much federal aid you qualify for, 提交FAFSA可以帮助你有资格获得机构援助、奖学金和其他来源的助学金. At PBA, 你的FAFSA成绩将用于确定你是否有资格获得PBA助学金,以及一些奖学金和助学金.

Visit studentaid.gov (or get the “My Student Aid” app) to complete the FAFSA. You will need your FSA ID and Password.

对于2024-2025学年,PBA建议在3月1日之前完成FAFSA. If you are unable to complete the FAFSA by March 1, we encourage you to complete it when you are able.

Loans

Your loan servicer is assigned once your loan is disbursed. 您的贷款服务机构将定期更新您的直接贷款状态, and any additional Direct Loans that you receive.

After you graduate, leave school, or drop below half-time enrollment, 在你开始还款之前,你有六个月的宽限期. During this period, you’ll receive repayment information from your loan servicer, and you’ll be notified of your first payment due date. Payments are usually due monthly.
