The primary application for financial aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Visit the Financial Aid Office website for information on application deadlines as they are subject to change based on the expected start term, for alternative financing options including private student loans and VA specific scholarships, and to view sample College Financing Plan that disclose and simplify the Cost of Attendance for prospective and current VA students. Additional consumer information disclosures are also available.

We encourage all service members to schedule a meeting with Shontisha Kinchen-Askew to ensure a clear and complete explanation of what financial aid is available and the awarding process. To do so, please contact the Financial Aid Office at (203) 773-8508 or at financial_aid@albertus.edu.
