Qualifying for Need-Based Aid

The basic criterion for qualifying for most other forms of financial aid is need, which is defined as the difference between the cost of education at Stevenson University and the family's ability to contribute to educational expenses. Financial need is determined through a careful review of all information supplied on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), a standard need analysis system that treats all students equally and fairly. Students applying for financial assistance will automatically be considered for all forms of aid. An award package, consisting of various types of aid, is offered to assist in meeting a student's financial need.
