Student Marriage

Students who receive need-based financial aid from the Federal government and from the College who enter the College with the status of unmarried, single, and dependent will remain in that status regardless of whether or not they choose to marry post-enrollment.  F&M students who marry post-enrollment may see an adjustment to their Federal need-based aid, provided they file their FAFSA on time and as a married student at the time of application, but no change to marital status will affect institutional aid from the College, per the College Board/CSS Profile.
