File the FAFSA

FAFSAFinancial aid can come from federal, state, institutional and private sources. It can be in the form of gift aid (scholarships and grants) or self-help (student employment and low-interest loans).

We determine each student’s financial aid individually, and you may receive a combination of types of aid depending upon your eligibility. Ripon College awards financial aid using information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

This form is available online, from your high school guidance counselor or from the Office of Financial Aid. If you haven’t filed the FAFSA yet, visit The Ripon College FAFSA code is 003884.
