Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take for Rutgers to receive my FAFSA?
The Office of Financial Aid usually receives your FAFSA seven (7) days from the time you completed the application. However, you will not receive an award notification until mid-March (for those that file before the January 15 priority deadline) or two weeks after you submit the FAFSA (for those that file after the priority deadline).
When will I receive my refund if my awards are more than my semester charges?
Once your awards credit to your student account and exceed the balance due, a refund check will be produced. To determine if you have a refund check, you can view your account online.
Can I receive financial aid to attend a study abroad program?
Please contact the Rutgers Center for Global Education to learn more about financial aid available to study abroad students.
What do I do if my financial aid is not on my term bill?
If you receive an award letter subsequent to the date of your term bill, you may adjust your amount due by the amount of aid offered. You can also view your award online.
What happens if I filed the FAFSA after the priority deadline?
Filing the FAFSA by the priority deadline ensures that you will be considered for all available aid. If you file after the priority filing deadline of December 1 (for incoming students) or January 15 (for continuing students) and are eligible to receive financial aid, an aid package will still be constructed for you, but you may miss out on some campus-based funding.
