Ashland University offers financial aid and scholarships to help you.
Paying for college — any college — can be a challenge. Rest assured, when you choose Ashland University, you have a team of experienced financial aid counselors working on your behalf.
We offer scholarships for accomplishments across a wide range of areas. From academic scholarships to music, art, theatre and athletic scholarships, there are many opportunities that cover a significant portion of the cost. While you will want to apply for any scholarships that are available in your local area, you don’t need to apply for Ashland administered scholarships. When you send in your enrollment application, our staff automatically submits your name for all awards for which you may be eligible. Make sure you apply for admission early. It’s the best way to be sure nothing is missed.
STEPS TO APPLY AND RECEIVE YOUR FINANCIAL AID
Financial aid is processed for Ashland University students on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to those who have submitted a FAFSA by the March 15 priority date. To receive your financial aid in a timely manner, please complete the following steps
|Apply — Have your federal PIN ready. If you do not have a PIN or need a new one, apply at www.pin.ed.gov. You and one of your parents listed on your FAFSA will each need a PIN to sign your FAFSA online. Complete your FAFSA by March 15 using Ashland University’s school code 003012. Make every effort to complete federal tax returns in February to use actual tax information when filing your FAFSA. If that is not possible, please file your FAFSA on time with estimated tax figures and update your FAFSA when they are complete. Watch "7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA" for a helpful tutorial.|
|Review Award — Review your award on WebAdvisor. Incoming students receive the first Financial Aid Award by mail along with instructions for viewing the award electronically on WebAdvisor. Current students and registered incoming students whose awards are revised will receive notice through Ashland University email when their Financial Aid Award is available for viewing. Be sure to check your Ashland University email account frequently for important notices from the Financial Aid Office.|
|Complete Loan Processes — For any loans listed on your award letter that you wish to take advantage of, complete required processes if you have not already done so. If you wish to cancel or reduce any of your loans, please send us your request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Federal Stafford Loans listed on your award will be processed unless you tell us otherwise.|
ORGANIZE — Organization is critical to understanding your bill and your financial aid. Information is communicated, primarily, to the student. Please read all communications from our office and keep necessary documents online or in a location where you can access them when you need them.
