Steps in Applying for Financial Aid

Students and families who wish to be considered for federal, state and institutional funding through the University of Saint Francis must:

It is important that students keep a copy of applications submitted and documentation used in the completion of the application.

It is the student's responsibility to ensure the FAFSA is completed each year even though they may receive assistance from their parents in completing the application process.

Verification Process

During the processing of a student's FAFSA, the U.S. Department of Education will select files at random for a process called verification. Students who are selected for verification will be notified by the school and must provide the requested documentation to be eligible for federal, state or institutional funds.

Students who are selected for verification will not receive funding until the verification materials have been submitted and the financial aid file is completed. Students who do not comply with the request for additional information are responsible for making the necessary payment arrangements with the university's business office.

The University of Saint Francis reserves the right to adjust a student's award as necessary in order to comply with federal, state and institutional financial aid guidelines and federal regulations.
