The priority deadline date for all students is April 1. Applications received after that date will be handled on first-come, first-served basis. It should be noted that missing the deadline of April 1 does not exclude a student from qualifying for some need-based aid such as the Pell Grant and Stafford Loan. Please file during January and February to ensure your eligibility for aid funds. After April 1st the financial aid office cannot guarantee financial aid will be processed in time to meet the payment deadlines.
Students, who through the FAFSA qualify for work-study, can complete and return the work application form. Need based work-study positions will be filed on a first-come, first-served basis. Once all positions are filled the Office of Financial Aid will begin work waiting list.

To receive a student loan, student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be sure to list Flagler's Federal School Code (007893) on the form.

Parents may borrow through the federal loan program the full amount of the student's Cost of Attendance less any other aid received. Cost of Attendance includes the actual costs of Tuition and Room & Board (if the student is boarding), estimated amounts for books, supplies, transportation, personal expenses and off-campus living expenses (if the student non-boarding).
If a parent is denied a PLUS Loan, then the student is eligible to borrow additional Stafford Student Loan funds above the usual annual limit. Grade level determines how much additional loan funds a student may apply for in this instance. Freshmen and Sophomores can borrow $4,000 more per year, and Juniors and Seniors $5,000 more per year.
The FAFSA is not required to apply for a Parent Plus Loan only.
The College does not offer a plan for installment payments of tuition and fees. If additional aid funds are needed, after applying for the maximum Federal Direct Student Loan available, then a Private Alternative Student Loan from a commercial lender may be an option to consider. The loan terms, fees and interest rates of Private Alternative Student Loans vary from lender to lender. Flagler College recommends a comparison of several of these loans and lenders to find the one which best suits your needs. You are free to choose the lender. Flagler College will process private student loan forms from any lender that you select.

This program is designed to provide non-need students with work opportunities on campus. Since priority for jobs is given to students with need, a non-need student is assigned a job usually when he/she is specifically requested by a work supervisor because of special skills or talent. A student not requested on this basis can apply for a job through the Office of Financial Aid, at which time he/she is placed on a waiting list. The normal work week is six hours and the minimum wage is paid. The standard work award is $700 per semester.
