To apply for Wooster need-based aid, complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA on the web and this form.
If you are applying for a Parent Plus Loan only, complete the 2020-21 FAFSA on the web and the loan application process at
www.studentloans.gov. It is not necessary to submit this form.
Wooster merit scholarships awarded at admission are automatically renewed for up to 8 semesters, unless otherwise notified by the Committee
on Academic Standards, and do not require completion of the FAFSA or this form.
We recommend that both the student and the parents (if 2018 tax returns were filed) complete the IRS data retrieval tool process on
the FAFSA
. Copies of 2018 federal income tax returns and W-2 statements will be requested from families as needed and prior to review of
any special circumstances. Your application is complete when we receive this form and your FAFSA electronic report. *Exception – If you are
selected by the federal processor for the Federal Verification review, you will be required to submit additional information. If your application
is submitted late, you may receive less aid because of limited funds.
