    @ktpineapple I JUST found out about this program today! Can you tell me your thoughts on and experiences in it?

    Hey Colleen VZ, I think you have a great chance to get the scholarship, too. With that being said, I think you should start your program, and wait to see. While you're in there, talk to your financial aid office - sometimes they will work with student situations in terms of payment. This may include the amount that you'd be refunded if you don't get the scholarship (I'm sending good vibes your way, though. I hope you get it). Just because the 100% refund date is earlier than the date you'd be probably be finding out your application status, doesn't mean that you won't get SOME kind of refund after that date. I believe you can still get 75% back, which is still a lot. Who knows, once you start, the FA can probably give you other resources to keep you in. I know the process sucks, but I don't think you should give up. From what I've read over the year is that September is about average as to when people get their acceptance. The application packet lets you know that they will refund anything you have been forced to pay. Again, work with you FA office. Good luck.

    I'm not sure. Whatever the handbook says. I put it on all my documents last year.

    @ciaraf, they want you to upload the documents with a header. That was my understanding. It should have your ID, your program type, and name I think

    @Smcshane and @Izzystout, I found this from the application guidelines: "The Nurse Corps SP award and contract is for the 2019-2020 academic year (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020). " And this from studentaidhelp.gov.edu " If you will be attending school from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, you should fill out the 2019-20 FAFSA." https://studentaidhelp.ed.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/386/~/should-i-fill-out-the-2018-19-fafsa-or-the-2019-20-fafsa%3F I hope you both still qualify. Update your application if you need to. I still don't qualify.

    @Smcshane, the rules for the 2019-20 year per FAFSA are that you must use your 2017 information. You can get into some kind of trouble or run into issues if you use the wrong year. I called the Nurse Corps helpline, and they verified that 2017 info is what is used to determine eligibility. https://blog.ed.gov/2018/09/7-things-you-need-2019-20-fafsa/

    @jleegato, thank you for that info. The whole situation seems unfair. I've kinda lost faith in the scholarship. I'll just have to look into loan repayment programs, then.
  9. I can't seem to find a thread on the latest round of Nurse Corps Applications, So I'll start. My initial point is more of me venting, but guess I'll ask - Should I even continue with my application? The new cycle and FAFSA wants us to use 2017 tax info, but in 2017, I was preparing for school and was employed full-time. Now that I'm collecting pennies and in dire need of assistance, it looks like my EFC is almost 8000. I can rarely work in reality. I'm really disheartened and confused as to why the FAFSA is set up like that. Is anyone else experiencing this?
