With a commitment to accessible and affordable education, Baker College has secured its place among the top institutions that embrace the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) for online programs. The recognition is a testament to Baker’s unwavering support for its students and its commitment to fostering quality education, offering a pathway towards personal and professional growth without the burden of insurmountable financial stress.
Baker College’s dedication to having online programs that accept FAFSA® showcases a commitment to breaking down financial barriers. This is just one of the ways students can access vital resources, ensuring their dreams of attending college can become a reality.
As the cost of education continues to rise, many students face financial challenges. To address this, both federal and state governments, along with numerous universities, offer financial aid programs to support these students. The FAFSA® serves as the key federal financial assistance program, assessing eligibility according to a student’s family’s financial situation. There are 89% of Baker students who receive grants or scholarships, with 46% of students qualifying for Pell Grants, according to 2021-22 data provided by Linda Katrinic, Baker College Vice President of Financial Aid.
The FAFSA® is a critical tool for obtaining financial assistance for higher education in the U.S. To apply, visit the official FAFSA®website, complete the application, and list Baker College as a preferred institution to receive your financial aid information. Significant changes and enhancements are being made for the 2024–25 form, with the updated version slated for release December 31, 2023.
