HOW DO I APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID?
The fastest way to apply for financial aid is by logging on to studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. By filing your free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online, you insure its accuracy and the information goes directly to the federal processor, which means you receive your Student Aid Report sooner. It’s fast, convenient, and user-friendly. If you require a paper application, you may contact Southwest University’s financial aid office and one will be mailed to you. Upon request from the Financial Aid Office, you may need to provide additional documents such as student and/or parent tax returns, verification of untaxed income or other documents required to determine eligibility.
The Financial Aid Office will mail you award notification approximately 3-6 weeks after receipt of your Student Aid Report (depending on the time of year) only if you have already been accepted for admission to Southwest University.
How much assistance do I qualify for?
Your eligibility for the need-based financial aid programs is determined by subtracting your Effective Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by your Student Aid Report, from the cost of attendance for your course of study. Cost of attendance includes tuition and fees, books and supplies, housing, personal and transportation costs. Charges for tuition and fees can be found in the Tuition & Fees section of the current Southwest University Catalog. These costs are subject to change.
