Applying for financial aid
How to apply
Your first step will be to fill out the FAFSA. The quickest and easiest way to apply is online at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. To apply online, you'll need a Federal Student Aid (FSA) username and password from the US Department of Education. If you don't have one yet, you can get a username at at https://fsaid.ed.gov. Read all instructions carefully and answer each question accurately.
If you don't complete the application electronically, you can print, sign and mail your FAFSA. The advantage to submitting it electronically is that it takes less time to process.
Your FAFSA will need to include Labouré's Federal School Code: 006324.
If you don't have internet access at home, you can use Labouré's library or computer lab, or your local public library.
If you have questions, our financial aid counselors are happy to help!
You only need to complete the FAFSA once per academic year, and it's recommended that you complete it by the priority deadline for your first semester. Submitting your FAFSA by the priority deadline means you'll receive maximum consideration for all types of aid; submitting after the priority deadline means that you'll be considered on a funds-available basis.
Priority deadlines are:
- May 1 for Fall semester
- November 1 for Spring semester
- April 1 for Summer semester
Additional documents to submit
You may be asked to submit some additional documentation to Labouré, which may include verification forms, copies of your federal tax return transcripts from the IRS, or other documents.
Our Financial Aid Team will contact you through your Labouré email address, or the email address you listed on your FAFSA if you need to submit any additional documents.
Financial aid status
You'll receive an email to your Labouré or FAFSA-listed email address if you are awarded financial aid.
You can also view your status at any time on the financial aid website: https://financialaid.laboure.edu.
This site can be used to view and download any missing documentation as well as to view, modify, and accept financial aid awards.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
The U.S. Department of Education requires all students who receive financial aid to make satisfactory academic progress toward completion of their programs of study. SAP is the measure of a student’s overall progress. Students who fail to meet SAP standards may not receive financial aid, including loans. A student’s entire academic history will be reviewed for the purpose of determining satisfactory academic progress, including credits not covered by financial aid.
