How To Apply
*For information on how to apply for Summer 2013 Financial Aid please visit this page.
All students should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and include La Salle University’s Title IV code of 003287.
Complete the La Salle University Web Institutional Data Form (IDF).
**Priority deadlines for the FAFSA and IDF are as follows:
Every year, the federal government randomly selects a group of students for verification. If you're selected, you will be required to submit additional documentation in order to complete your application. This paperwork can be obtained from the forms section of the Student Financial Services website.
Aside from verification, there may be other special circumstances pertaining to your application, for which we will need to collect various documentation. You will receive a letter that details the additional documentation needed. All documentation must be submitted within 2 weeks of receipt of our request letter. No aid will be awarded until all requested documentation is received by our office. (See the section below on deadlines for more information).
You may use the La Salle University portal to see what documentation is needed and if it has been received by the Office of Student Financial Services. To view this information, log on to the La Salle portal, and then click on Br. LUWIS.
Why are these deadlines so important to you?
The purpose of our deadlines is to assure that your financial aid is credited to your account by the start of the term. However, filing late or submitting requested documentation after the deadline may cause a reduction in your financial aid award or a delay in having your aid credited to your account.
If you miss the application or the additional documentation deadline, you must be prepared to use the Actively Managed Payment Plan (AMPP), administered by Nelnet Business Solutions. Information concerning the payment plan can be obtained by contacting 1-800-609-8056. If you do not make the necessary payment arrangements, you will incur a late charge that will not be waived. For more information concerning payment plans and late fees, please contact the Office of Student and Accounts Receivable at 215-951-1055 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you miss the deadlines and your financial aid is not in place, then you must be prepared for a delay in receiving a refund check for living expenses or a transfer of funds to your gold card to buy books.
You can reach the Office of Student Financial Services at 215-951-1070 or use the La Salle portal to view your aid information.
