​​​​Returning Student Application Procedures

Returning students should follow these financial aid renewal instructions.

Renewal financial aid packages are available the first week of July each year.

Step 1 – Complete the FAFSA by 4/15.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be sure to list Babson College. Follow the FAFSA instructions for the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. 

If you have not already done so, you must create a Federal Student ID (FSA ID), made up of a username and password. Your FSA ID identifies you as someone who has the right to access your own personal information on the Department of Education websites, such as the FAFSA and Federal Student Aid sites. Parents of dependents students must also create their own FSA IDs in order to electronically sign the FAFSA. You can find more information about the FSA ID here​

Step 2 - Submit all verification documents to IDOC by 4/15.

Once we receive your 20182019 FAFSA, we will initiate an email request from the College Board Imaging and Documentation Service (IDOC) for the following documents. If you no longer have access to the email request, you can also access the information online at https://idoc.collegeboard.org.
