Applying for financial aid doesn't have to be confusing. You just need to follow each step along the way.
NOTE: You must be admitted to the university to receive information from the Lewis University Office of Financial Aid Services. Please speak with your admission advisor to ensure you are enrolled as a degree-seeking student.
NEW >>> File your FAFSA beginning October 1, 2016.
- Submit your Application for Admission to Lewis University.
- If you are selected for verification, additional documentation will be requested (e.g., IRS tax transcript, verification of child support, w-2's) by Lewis University. The IRS Data Retrieval process provides the student with the easiest way to meet the verification requirements.
NOTE: If you owe federal taxes on a filed tax return, you will be unable to utilize the IRS data retrieval process until April 15.
- A Financial Aid Award Letter will be sent to the student. The award letter outlines all financial aid, for which the student is eligible during the academic year.
- After receiving your Financial Aid Award Letter, you must complete the Entrance Counseling and Direct Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN).
Here is a step-by-step guide to completing the documents.
Note: Entrance Counseling, Direct Stafford Loan MPN, Parent PLUS Application, Parent PLUS MPN, Grad PLUS Application, and Grad PLUS MPN are completed on the same website.
