Apply for Financial Aid
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. Federal regulations mandate that students can only receive financial aid for classes that count toward their degree, certificate or other recognized credential. 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.
StudentAid.gov Account & the FAFSA
Anyone who is required to provide information on the FAFSA is called a "contributor". All contributors will need to create a StudentAid.gov account if they have not already done so. In this process, contributors will make a username and password (FSA ID) to access their StudentAid.gov account. In StudentAid.gov, contributors may complete their portion of the online FAFSA form, complete other online federal financial aid forms, and view federal student aid they have received.
