Eligibility Requirements

MassBay Financial Aid Office retrieves the processed Student Aid Reports from an electronic mailbox and imports the data into our software system.  You may also need to provide our office with additional information. We will notify you of this request in your MassBay email account. Please actively monitor your MassBay email account to stay current with our office. This helps us, help you!

The U.S. Department of Education requires all applicants to meet certain eligibility requirements and if there are any conflicts, MassBay Financial Aid Office is required to resolve them.  In addition, the U.S. Department of Education randomly selects a percentage of applicants to complete a process called 'Verification'.  If you are selected for verification you must provide the MassBay Financial Aid Office with copies of the documents used to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In addition to resolving the conflicts identified by the U.S. Department of Education, the MassBay Financial Aid Office will review the FAFSA for inconsistent or missing information.  Please provide the information requested immediately; failure to complete this process in a timely manner will delay the awarding process.
