FAFSA Process

Remember, Olivet College’s FAFSA Code is 002308. FAFSA is year specific, so you will want to complete the application for the year you plan to attend college.

The FAFSA takes approximately four to six weeks to process before we receive notification of your awards. We will then send you your Financial Aid Award Letter. This letter will notify you of any grant and scholarship money that you are eligible to receive from Olivet College. The award letter will also notify you of your Federal Direct Loan eligibility. Once you have reviewed and accepted your financial aid award, you may apply for this loan online.
