Ten Days until HRL’s Annual Satisfaction Survey Launches

All resident students will be invited to participate in the annual Housing & Residence Life satisfaction survey. On February 22, the survey will launch and all resident students will receive an email invite in their SHU email account.

The results of this survey are used to advocate for students needs and are invaluable to the HRL department. So valuable that by completing the survey, a resident is entered in a raffle for a Nintendo Wii and Wii Fit! The first 150 students who complete the survey will receive a 24 ounce aluminum water bottle as well.

Confused about the room deposit?

We’re excited to see the numbers of returning students eager to apply to come back to housing next year! Many of you have asked us where to send your parents to make the housing deposit.

The housing deposit can be paid right off the front page of our housing application. For easier access, here’s the link .

Since the letter was sent home to families back in November, the Bursar’s office has notified us they will accept Visa cards for housing deposits only. We apologize for the confusion this may have caused.

Remember, deposits and applications have to be submitted by February 19th to be able to participate in Room Selection!

Our campus shuttle – SHUFLY – is looking for feedback

All members of the SHU community are invited to complete the brief survey about SHUFLY, the university shuttle.

Did you know that all resident students receive unlimited use of the SHUFLY as part of their room and board? The schedule and routes are extensive and offer a great way to explore the area of South Orange, as well as get to and from Ora Manor, SOPAC and the mall.

Don’t miss the priority deadline for financial aid!

All students must apply or reapply yearly for financial aid.

To be given the greatest consideration, students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to March 1, the Seton Hall priority deadline.

The online FAFSA is available January 1 each year. Complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Our school code is 002632.

If the priority date is missed, students should apply as soon as possible to be considered for any financial aid that is still available, such as Pell Grants, Stafford Loans and PLUS loans. Students who apply for aid after the March 1 priority date, should apply no later than June 1 to renew eligibility for State of New Jersey grant programs.

Students should not wait to be admitted to Seton Hall before applying for financial aid.

Tips for Filing Your FAFSA:

1. Gather the documents you need.

Start with your Social Security Number, driver’s license, student and parent income tax returns, bank statements and investment records.

2. Electronically sign your FAFSA application.

Students and parents need to apply for a PIN to electronically sign the student FAFSA. To apply for a PIN, visit www.PIN.ed.gov

3. Apply as soon after January 1 as possible.

Important Deadlines:

March 1 – Seton Hall Priority Deadline

June 1 – TAG Recipients Renewal Deadline
