Federal Financial Aid

Students may be eligible for financial assistance under one or more of the following Federal programs. These programs are designed to assist students in meeting their educational expense. The financial aid officer is available for additional information and assistance.

The FAFSA code for Studio School is E40398.

Federal Pell Program — A federally funded grant program. Eligibility for the grant and the amount of the award is based on the student’s and their family’s financial status.

Federal SEOG – Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant — A federally funded grant program administered by the school. Students must receive the Pell Grant and show an exceptional need in order to be eligible for the SEOG. The grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Federal Direct Stafford Loan — A long term, low interest loan made available through the federal government. No payments are due until six months after the student ceases to be enrolled at least half-time.

Federal Direct PLUS Loans — A long term variable interest rate loan made available through participating lenders to parents of dependent students. PLUS loans are not based on financial need, but are based on credit history. Repayment of interest and principal begins within 60 days after the loan is disbursed. The borrower must pay all of the interest on the loan after it is disbursed. However, principal can be deferred while the student remains in school full-time.

Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan — This program is similar to the Federal Direct Stafford Loan program except students may have to pay interest on their loan while attending school. This loan is not need based, but the amount a student receives is influenced by their regular Stafford Loan eligibility.

These programs are designed to assist students in meeting their educational expense. Students will be required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid online to determine their eligibility for one or more of the above programs. Visit FAFSA for more information about the application process. Upon approval Studio School will provide direct access to a financial aid officer for additional information and assistance.

International students are not eligible for need-based aid including federal and state government-based funding, subsidized loans and military programs, as well as Studio School need-based grants.

Need-Based Grants

Need-based grants are institutional grants presented by Studio School in combination with other federally funded aid. Only US citizens and eligible non-citizens may receive federal student financial aid and need-based institutional aid.
