Franklin & Marshall College Franklin & Marshall College

Deadlines

To be considered fully for need-based financial aid (from the U. S. Federal government and from Franklin & Marshall College), you must indicate your intent to apply for need-based financial aid on the application for admission, and you must submit both a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a completed Profile by the appropriate deadlines listed below.

The FAFSA tests eligibility for Federal funds.  The Profile tests eligibility for additional need-based grant funds from the College.  Students interested in applying only for Federal funds need only submit the FAFSA and may choose to not submit the Profile.

Notification of intent to apply for financial aid or completion and submission of either the FAFSA or the Profile after the deadline will result in consideration for Federal need-based financial aid only.
