In order to be eligible to receive financial aid at the university of New Haven all applicants must have applied, been officially accepted and matriculated for admission, and be enrolled in a degree program. Most financial aid awards are based on an individual's demonstration of need after careful consideration of the application for assistance. In calculating need, the Financial Aid Office attempts to consider all aspects of a student's financial circumstances. Need based awards are only available to U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens. Some funds are available on a merit basis for students who have exceptional academic records or athletic ability.
Financial aid applications must be completed three weeks prior to the last day of the term or academic year for which you are seeking aid in order to ensure enough time is available for processing and disbursing of funds. Completing your application too late may result in the inability to process any financial aid for the academic term or year.

If you/your parent do not already have an FSA ID, you/your parent can Create an FSA ID. The FSA ID is the fastest way to sign your FAFSA and have it processed, as well as access & correct your FAFSA online, or to pre-fill a FAFSA on the Web application with information from your previous year's FAFSA.
