Current Students

The Department of Education will not make the renewal application process available for the 2014-2015 cycle until January 1, 2014.

All renewal-eligible applicants will use the Web to reapply for aid because paper Renewal FAFSAs will no longer be printed and mailed. All renewal-eligible applicants can access Renewal FAFSA on the Web using their PIN to complete, sign, and submit a 2014-2015 Renewal FAFSA on or after January 1, 2014.

Each aid applicant who meets the eligibility requirements for a 2014-2015 Renewal FAFSA by January 15, 2014, will be sent a Renewal Reminder e-mail or a Renewal Reminder letter in between January 16, 2014 and February 11, 2014. With the elimination of the paper Renewal FAFSA, it is particularly important that renewal-eligible students receive a Renewal Reminder, which informs them that they can use the Web to reapply for aid. The Department encourages students to update their address and e-mail address on their 2014-2015 FAFSA to ensure the most current e-mail and mailing address information is present.

The Department of Education will not make the renewal application process available for the 2015-2016 cycle until January 1, 2015.

How can I receive a GRE fee reduction?

2014-2015

The only individuals who can be granted a 50% fee waiver for 2014-2015 (for tests from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015) are seniors receiving financial aid and returning unenrolled college graduates who have applied for financial aid and have an Institutional Student Information Report (ISIR - our version of the Student Aid Report - SAR) on file with Troy University. If you no longer have your paper SAR, you may call 1-800-4-FED-AID and request a copy or request one on line using your PIN.

To be eligible for a GRE® Fee Reduction Certificate, an applicant must be a United States citizen or resident alien who is a college senior or an unenrolled college graduate. 

  • College seniors must be (1) receiving financial aid through an undergraduate college in the United States, American Samoa, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico, AND EITHER (2) a dependent, who has an Institutional Student Information Report (ISIR) that shows a parental contribution of not more than $1,500 for the senior year, OR (3) self-supporting and have an ISIR that shows a contribution of not more than $1,900 for the senior year.
  • Unenrolled college graduates must (1) have applied for financial aid, AND (2) have an ISIR that indicates self-supporting status and a contribution of not more than $1,900.

The GRE Program requires that a copy of the applicant's ISIR be sent with the GRE fee waiver certificate. If the student meets these conditions they should send their completed fee waiver certificate with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the Troy Financial Aid Office, 134 Adams Administration Building, Troy, AL 36082.

ETS offers a limited number of GRE Fee Reduction Vouchers on a first-come, first-served, basis that are available for college seniors and unenrolled college graduates who meet eligibility requirements. The applicant must mail to ETS the following: (1) the original, signed Fee Reduction Certificate, (2) payment equivalent to 50 percent of the full test fee (the most up-to-date test fees are available at www.ets.org/gre), (3) page one of the ISIR showing his or her estimated family contribution, and (4) the GRE test registration forms for the test(s) for which he or she is registering.  If registering for both the GRE®  revised General Test and a Subject Test, the GRE test registration materials for both tests must be mailed together in one envelope. Additional information for applicants appears on the Fee Reduction Certificate.

Starting in July 2013, individuals who are approved for a GRE Fee Reduction may retake a GRE test for 50 percent of the full test fee within one calendar year of the receipt of their original Fee Reduction Certificate and ISIR materials without resubmitting a new Fee Reduction Certificate or ISIR form. These individuals can complete the Declaration of Eligibility form available at www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/about/fees/reductions, and send it with the appropriate payment and registration form(s) to GRE-ETS, Financial Need Fee Reduction Program, P.O. Box 6000, Princeton NJ 08541-6000.
