STEP 1:      Fill out the FAFSA

Complete the FAFSA form after January 1 (Gordon's code is 002153):


Note: the Federal Student Aid website recently changed from a login system with a four digit pin to a system with a username and password. Students who have not logged in recently will need to set up their “FSA ID”. For frequently asked questions and help with this new process, visit:

Federal Student Aid: The FSA ID

The FAFSA provides Gordon with an assessment of your family’s financial strength and bases its financial aid awards on information from the FAFSA.

Gordon College no longer requires the Gordon Supplemental Form from financial aid applicants.

STEP 2:      Receive your Award Letter

Award letters will be sent on a rolling basis via mail beginning in February and will tell you how much aid you qualify for—including scholarships, grants, loans and work study.
