Financial Aid

Financial assistance (financial aid) awarded through Argosy University may consist of a combination of federal grants, scholarships, state aid programs, loans, and/or part-time work-study opportunities for those who qualify. Different forms of financial aid are explained later in this section.

Students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for financial assistance. After students are accepted and complete the appropriate paperwork, students will receive an award letter from Argosy University describing their Financial Aid Package.

How to Apply

Students must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for most types of financial aid. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine the amount of assistance for which a student is eligible. The FAFSA is designed to collect personal and financial information which is used to calculate financial need and determine eligibility for financial aid. This analysis takes into account factors such as income, assets, number of family members in the household, and the number of family members enrolled in college.
