Additional Information

At Barton, we’ve made applying for financial aid easy. All it takes is one form — the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA allows the federal government to determine how much your family can be expected to contribute to educational expenses. When you apply for financial aid, the amount you’re awarded is based on the difference between the cost of attending Barton and this expected contribution.

  1. Complete the FAFSA. You can fill out the application online at www.fafsa.gov.
  2. Enter Barton’s school code (002908-00) on your FAFSA so that we’ll receive your information as soon as it is processed.
  3. Submit your FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 but no later than May 1. If you apply after May 1, you will be considered only for whatever funds are still available.
