Understanding Your Financial Aid Offer Letter


The Financial Aid Office works with you to ensure you and your family understand the Financial Aid Offer process and encourages you to reach out with questions or concerns at any time to ensure a pleasant and successful aid application at Albertus Magnus College.

Financial Aid Offer

Your Financial Aid Offer is based on demonstrated need, which is calculated as Cost of Attendance (COA) minus Student Aid Index (SAI):

COA-SAI=Demonstrated Need

Your SAI is calculated based on the information reported on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will receive notification that your Estimated Financial Aid Offer can be viewed in Net Partner.

Revised Financial Aid Offers

All awards are subject to adjustment based on changes in enrollment, changes in housing status, changes in need, need analysis, failure to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), and conflicting information on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). Revisions are made in a timely manner when the Financial Aid Office is notified of a change in your eligibility. You will receive a Revised Financial Aid Offer notifying you that there has been a change to your Financial Aid Offer detailing the cause of the revision. You will be able to view the revision in Net Partner.
