We try to take the guesswork out of financial aid by providing you with an easy-to-follow checklist for your senior year:
- Apply for admission to Sweet Briar as soon as the application is available (typically mid-August).
- Sometime between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31, use Sweet Briar’s net price calculator.
- File your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), starting Oct. 1. When you file your FAFSA (fafsa.ed.gov), be sure to include SBC’s FAFSA code 003742.
- Eagerly await your award package. Those meeting the stated deadlines will typically receive a financial aid package in early Nov.
Other activities you should be doing to help reduce college costs include looking into non-SBC-specific scholarships. You can create online scholarship profiles on sites such as Fastweb, Chegg, BigFuture. Also, visit your college counseling/guidance office regularly for information about local scholarships.
