Application Procedures for Incoming Students

HMS uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS Profile as key components of the financial aid application. Students who plan to apply for institutional financial aid are urged to file both forms as soon as possible after January 1st. Instructions for filing these forms are mailed to accepted students in March; however, they can be obtained earlier at most high schools, public libraries and university financial aid offices.

Candidates accepted or waitlisted for admission are asked to file additional application materials in March. These materials include parent tax returns, so families are urged to complete their tax returns early. Awards cannot be made until all materials have been received, therefore it is important to file as early as possible.
