Complete the FAFSA for financial aid

We make applying for and receiving aid simple. In fact, more than 95 percent of Earlham students receive some form of financial assistance. With all that is going on in the world today, we are committed to supporting you with the most comprehensive aid package possible. To get a better idea of your financial aid package, be sure to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and use Earlham’s school code: 001793.

If you’ve already completed the FAFSA, you can check your financial aid award in your personalized admissions portal.


Coming soon

After you’ve accepted your offer of admission, you will begin receiving information about next steps to becoming an Earlhamite. These include: 


SETTING UP: Create your Earlham log-in credentials. 

This step is where you'll create your Earlham email account, which will be our primary form of communication with you. These credentials also give you access to your student portal. 


LOGGING IN: Check off to-do items. 

Beginning May 2021, there are several forms and questionnaires you'll need to complete, including: 

  • Your housing application, so you can be matched with a roommate and a residence hall. 
  • The advising questionnaire, so we can assign you to a faculty member who will be your first-year academic adviser. 
  • Placement exams for languages and math. 


GETTING ORGANIZED: Prepare for the semester.

During the summer, you'll meet (virtually) with your academic adviser to register for courses, sign up for New Student Orientation and wrap up the last of the tasks in your student portal. This is also the time to start looking for on-campus jobs in Handshake, our online job portal for students.


STARTING YOUR JOURNEY: Attend New Student Orientation in August!
