HOW MUCH DOES AN OUTSTANDING COLLEGE EDUCATION COST?
You'll be surprised to discover just how affordable Neumann University is, especially when you take into account our respected academic programs, career-focused majors, expert faculty, superb location, and small class size.
But whether you’ve been saving for college all of your life or only recently decided to continue your education, chances are you’ll need some financial assistance. At Neumann, we want to make it easy for you to discover and qualify for the many grants, student loans and work-study opportunities that are available.
Make the process easier – have these items ready before completing your FAFSA:
- Your FSA ID-An FSA ID is a username and password that you can use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites. We recommend creating your FSA ID early—even before you’re ready to complete the FAFSA. If you are a dependent student, your parent will need to create an FSA ID, too. IMPORTANT: Do NOT create an FSA ID on behalf of someone else. That means parents should not create FSA IDs for their children and vice versa. Doing so may result in issues signing and submitting the FAFSA form and could lead to financial aid delays.
- Your Social Security Number - You can find the number on your Social Security card. If you don’t have access to it, and don’t know where it is, ask your parent or legal guardian. You can get a replacement card by contacting the Social Security Administration.
- 2019 Tax Information-the easiest thing to do is link the tax information through the Internal Revenue’s Data Retrieval Tool. The IRS DRT is the fastest, most accurate way to input your tax return information into the FAFSA form. Not everyone is eligible to use the IRS DRT; and the IRS DRT does not input all the financial information required on the FAFSA form. Therefore, you should have your 2019 tax return and 2019 IRS W-2 available for reference.
To be considered for state grants, your FAFSA needs to be filed by the following deadlines:
April 15, 2021
May 1, 2021

Email Scam Impersonating IRS Is Targeting College Students and Staff, Agency Warns
By Owen Daugherty, NASFAA Staff Reporter
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued a warning this week notifying those affiliated with higher education institutions of an ongoing email scam that appears to be primarily targeting those who have “.edu” email addresses.
The agency, in a release posted Tuesday, said it has received numerous complaints about the scam in recent weeks, noting that the emails to those with addresses ending in “.edu” have been targeting staff and students from both public and private, for-profit and nonprofit institutions.
The phishing emails, as they are commonly referred to, display the IRS logo and use various subject lines attempting to trick unsuspecting recipients, such as “Tax Refund Payment” or “Recalculation of your tax refund payment,” according to the IRS.
The scam emails prompt recipients to click a link and submit a form to claim their tax refund, then taxpayers are asked to provide personal information such as their names, date of birth, social security number, and other personal details.
Those who receive this scam email should not click on the link in the email and instead report it to the IRS. For those who may have fallen victim to the scam, the IRS recommends obtaining an Identity Protection PIN, which helps prevent identity thieves from filing fraudulent tax returns in the victim’s name.
The IRS added that taxpayers who believe they have a pending refund should check the status only on the agency’s website, IRS.gov.
