Still Deciding?

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
    If you are applying for need-based financial aid, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The suggested filing deadline is November 15, 2019. You can obtain all the information at www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you have questions about completing the FAFSA, a particular question on the FAFSA, or just general questions, please call the Office of Student Financial Planning. Juniata’s code number for the FAFSA is 003279.
  • Schedule a campus visit
    If you visited Juniata during your junior year or early last fall, you may want to schedule a second visit to take a closer look and meet our students and faculty. You  can schedule an individual visit and tailor your day to meet your specific interests. Details are at www.juniata.edu/admission/campus-visit/index. Keep in mind that the Accepted Student Open Houses are scheduled for February 24th, 2020, April 4th, 2020 and April 20th, 2020. 
  • Review your financial planning award
    If you have questions concerning your financial aid award, call your personal enrollment counselor or the Office of Student Financial Planning after receiving your financial planning award. 
  • Notify Juniata of your college selection
    Congratulations! You have made your final decision. Please return the enclosed form with your final decision. If Juniata College is your final choice, please include the $500 deposit. You may also pay your deposit online at apply.juniata.edu/apply/status. Don’t forget to contact all the colleges which you’ve been admitted and let them know of your choice prior to the date. You may want to consider depositing early since housing assignments are made based on when deposits are received.
