have access to much of the same
financial aid, scholarships, and grant opportunities as students attending a brick and mortar
school.* Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

Student Aid. Over
22 million people fill out a FAFSA form
The FAFSA is not difficult to complete, provided you have all of the
required documentation. One will first need to determine if they are a dependent or independent
student. Your dependency status determines whose information

have not yet earned a bachelor's or a professional degree. Some individuals
are not eligible to receive these grants—so be sure that you qualify.

school. Students might have to pay back all or part of a Federal Grant if
he/ she withdraws from school before finishing an enrollment period (for
example, a semester or class session).
Other federal aid possibilities include Federal Supplemental Educational
Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), direct loans, Parent PLUS loans, and graduate
In addition to any assistance that the FAFSA identifies, Argosy University
accepts employer tuition assistance and military tuition assistance.
Argosy University also offers scholarship and grant opportunities, which
vary by program and location. This assistance is available to qualified
prospective and current students—and sometimes to school alums. These
scholarships and grants may also be restricted to online students. There
may be other requirements and all are subject to change at any time.
