At Philadelphia University, we are committed to making a high-quality, professional education affordable for every qualified student. If meeting educational costs is a concern, we encourage you to apply for financial aid, regardless of family financial circumstances. Over 90% of our students receive aid in the form of grants, loans, campus employment, and/or scholarships.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
• Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can file your FAFSA online (please follow instructions listed on their website) or if you prefer a paper FAFSA, we can mail on to you at your request. Your application should be submitted as soon as possible after January 1.
• Make sure you list Philadelphia University's code on your application (#003354). You must complete a new FAFSA each year.
• Philadelphia University's deadline for applying for financial aid is April 15.
• Soon after the FAFSA has been processed, both the student and Philadelphia University will receive the Student Aid Report (SAR) indicated if the application successfully was processed. If it has not been processed, students must correct their application as indicated on their SAR.
• If the student has been accepted to the University, the Office of Financial Aid will determine their eligibility and award the student accordingly.
Students will be considered for the following:
• Philadelphia University Grant
• Federal Pell Grant
• PHEAA (for Pennsylvania residents only)
• Federal Perkins Loan
• Federal Work Study
• Stafford Load
• Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
The student will receive a Financial Aid award letter approximately four weeks after you have filed the FAFSA.
