** Government Shutdown** If you are selected for Federal FAFSA Verification, we understand that you may not be able to access some required IRS documents to complete the Verification Process due to the government shutdown.

If the shutdown continues past March 15, 2019, we will update this message and provide further instructions.
The personal attention Catawba's Financial Aid Office offers you is indicative of the same personal attention you'll receive from faculty in your classrooms and staff members in our various offices. Indeed, this personal touch is what sets Catawba College apart from many large public institutions and allows each one of our students to Transform, be Inspired, and Belong.
The Financial Aid Office encourages students to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with Catawba’s Federal ID number 002914 starting October 1st of each year. The FAFSA application allows our Financial Aid Office to award you all the financial aid you are eligible for from Catawba College, as well as the Federal and State Governments. Your financial aid package may include things like scholarships, grants, work study and student loans.
Once you file your FAFSA, the Financial Aid Office will send you a Financial Aid Award Letter with all the financial aid you are eligible for from the Financial Aid Office. Once you make the decision to enroll at Catawba College, pay careful attention to any Financial Aid Requirements you need to complete to retain all the financial aid offered to you.
Our Financial Aid Office looks forward to assisting you as you become part of the Catawba College community!
