Most of our forms are to be completed on line, and thus, there is no need to send in paper copies of forms that were completed on line. However, if you need to submit additional information to us, such as copies of tax returns, letters and outside scholarship information, then those items should be labeled with your name and Tulane ID number, and then, should be mailed to the following address:
Financial Aid Processing Center
P.O. Box 8090
Portsmouth, NH 03802
Tulane's school code for the FAFSA is 002029.
We encourage applicants to use The U. S. Department of Education’s FAFSA on the Web because applying on the Internet offers several advantages over the traditional paper application.
Students can verify the status of their completed FAFSA by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov and selecting from the “FAFSA follow-up” menu. FAFSA applicants can also call The Department of Education to check their status at their toll-free line (1-800-4 FED AID or 1-800-433-3243).
Once a FAFSA has been received, the Health Sciences Office of Financial Aid reviews your file. Your financial aid eligibility will be based on your FAFSA data and other application materials. Please refer to the section on calculating need for more details as well as our School of Medicine Cost of Attendance information.
Randomly, applicants are selected by the federal processor for verification of information submitted on the FAFSA. Students selected will receive notification of such on the Student Activity Report (SAR) that the Department of Education sends to you after you complete your FAFSA. The documentation necessary for verification is the appropriate 2017 - 2018 Verification Worksheet (print the form, complete it, then sign it and mail it to the address on the form). Additional documents may be required depending upon the information to be verified; please review the Verification Worksheet for details.
Students who were not required to file a federal tax return can complete the 2017-18 Student Non-Filer Form if they are picked for Verification. Otherwise, this form is not required.
Medical students interested in qualifying for either a Primary Care Loan, or the Loan for Disadvantaged Students must submit the following:
International students should only complete the Financial Aid Addendum if they intend on applying for a private student loan.
