How Do I Apply for Financial Aid? - Boston

Once you are admitted to a Master's degree program, you may apply for financial aid. See the general requirements to be eligible for financial aid at Boston-Apply-for-Financial-Aid.

Step 1

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) here. Use this application for a renewal or to file for the first time. The school code for Gordon-Conwell is G09747.

Step 2

Complete the Gordon-Conwell Financial Aid Application and return it to the Financial Aid Office.

Step 3

Address any missing items on your FAFSA. Follow-up with any questions from the Financial Aid Office about your GCTS Financial Aid Application. Financial aid staff can not make any determination until both are complete. 

Step 4

Let the Financial Aid Office know if any information on your application changes including course load, scholarships, or outside support.

Please note that scholarship deadlines may be different than deadlines for the FAFSA and GCTS Financial Aid Application.  Find more information about schol



Financial Aid Decision
You will receive a written decision once your completed file has been reviewed.  (Final action and award notification is not made for prospective students until after the student is accepted for admission to Gordon-Conwell.)  The financial aid award consists of Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan aid up to the cost of attendance (including tuition, fees, and estimated expenses for books and supplies), which is partially determined by the number of courses in which the student enrolls.

Appeal Process
If the financial aid award for loan eligibility does not accurately reflect the number of courses taken in a semester, you may request another review.  Your request must be made in writing (email is preferred) and should clearly state your reasons for the appeal.  An appeal for additional loan aid must be verified with GCTS registration information.  Appeals are not reviewed until after the term to which they pertain has begun.

A reminder:
Students are primarily responsible for financing their cost of attendance at Gordon-Conwell. Students seeking financial assistance must make every reasonable effort to adjust their lifestyles and spending practices to minimize their expenses while attending seminary. In addition, the student must consider spending a portion of savings and assets, pursuing support from sources such as parent, family, home congregations, denominational sources, etc. and be willing to pursue part-time employment.
