Financial aid funds are available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, or work opportunities for eligible undergraduate and graduate students who need financial aid assistance in order to pursue a college education. The type and amount of financial aid which is awarded to qualified students is based upon the extent of the students' need as well as the amount of financial aid funds available for disbursement. All types of financial aid are awarded for a period of one academic year; therefore, students must re-apply for financial aid funds each year. Students entering the College must be accepted into an eligible program of study and meet other criteria in order to qualify for financial aid funds. Recipients must meet the U.S. citizenship requirements for federal and state financial aid programs.

Goldey-Beacom College offers a New Student Timeline to assist undergraduate applicants with the financial aid process. Any questions about the Timeline can be directed to the College's Financial Aid/Advisement Office at or the Admissions Office at (302) 225-6248.

Students and parents who need help filing the electronic Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should contact the College's Financial Aid/Advisement Office at (302) 225-6265. The FAFSA is used to calculate your Estimated Family Contribution. The FAFSA will also serve as an application for federal and state financial aid programs.

Verification Policy

Verification uses a student's documentation to confirm that the data provided on a student's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. The Federal government requires all colleges and universities that participate in the Title IV aid programs to verify, or confirm, the data reported by a student and their parent 1/parent 2 on the FAFSA. The verification process ensures that eligible students receive all the Federal financial aid to which they are entitled and prevents ineligible students from receiving financial aid for which they do not qualify.

Students are randomly chosen by the Federal government. If the FAFSA a student submits is incomplete or inconsistent with other documentation provided to the Advisor, the student and/or parent 1/parent 2 will be asked to update the data on the FAFSA. Verification is a Federal regulation and the items to be verified may change each award year. Additional supporting documentation may be requested by the Advisor should questions arise after a review of the Student Aid Report (SAR).

The Advisor will notify the student if selected for verification. All requests for documentation from a student or parent 1/parent 2 must be fulfilled before any aid eligibility is finalized. Students who have not completed the verification process prior to the start of a given semester must contact the GBC Business Office at (302) 225-6268 to receive direction on how to proceed with making an out of pocket payment.

A student and/or parent/guardian are directed to speak with an Advisor to learn more information about this important step in the financial aid awarding process.
