- In addition to merit-based aid, students can file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for need-based grants from Seton Hall as well as the federal and state governments. File at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa by November 1. For Fall 2023 freshman applicants, the FAFSA will open in December and should be completed by January 1 or as soon as possible. Seton Hall’s FAFSA code is 002632.
- One of the biggest mistakes families make is ruling out a school early in the selection process because of cost. The actual final cost you will pay once scholarships and financial aid are taken into consideration is often much lower than the sticker price. You won’t know this final cost until about March of the student’s senior year once you have received a financial aid package. In the meantime, you can get an estimate of your financial aid by visiting our net cost calculator.
