financial aid for students

Funding your education - it starts with FAFSA

After submitting your application, it's time to file for financial aid. The first step is FAFSA. FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens seeking an undergraduate or graduate degree. The Office of Financial Aid at Stritch will rely on this information to locate grants, loans, and need-based scholarships to help you fund your education. 

International students should not file the FAFSA.

If you have questions about FAFSA or need assistance completing it, we will be happy to help you. If your family financial situation now is different from the information being used for FAFSA, please see the questions and concerns section below for how we can help.

Common questions or concerns

***If you or your family experience significant changes to your financial situation (such as a loss of employment or pay cuts), or other unusual circumstances (such as high unreimbursed medical or dental expenses or tuition expenses at an elementary or secondary school), complete the FAFSA to the extent that you can and submit it as instructed.

Please feel free to contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss any questions or concerns about your particular circumstances and to find out what paperwork you should submit for us to review the circumstance you are experiencing.

The Office of Financial Aid is here to answer your questions. Speak one-on-one with a counselor for help by calling (414) 410-4048 or email them

Don’t panic. You are still eligible for aid. We are just going to verify your FAFSA for accuracy. This is a federal requirement. If you have been randomly selected for verification, we will ask you to complete a Verification Worksheet. You can find a link to the verification worksheet on your Stritch Online Aid Service portal on the documents tab. You may also need to submit yours and/or your parents’ tax documents. You can check for documents needed on the documents tab.

Undergraduate students must take at least six credits (part-time) to receive Federal Direct Stafford loans. By taking a minimum of 12 credits (full time), students are eligible to receive Stritch scholarships and grants.

Graduate students must enroll in a minimum of three credits in order to qualify for financial aid, and be eligible for any scholarships available for the degree program.

Log into Online Aid Service and click on the documents tab. If you read “not reviewed” or “received” then the Office of Financial Aid has your documents. If you read “not signed” or “incomplete” then we have your documentation but something is incomplete. We will send a notice by email but you are also welcome to contact us.

Each year, you need to fill out a FAFSA in order to renew and continue your financial aid. The FAFSA is available every October 1 for the following award year.

Your credit score does not affect your eligibility for Stafford loans, federal and state grants, or Stritch scholarships. If you decide to work with a lender to receive an alternative loan, your credit score will then become a factor in determining your loan interest rate. Students who have defaulted on a previous student loan might have difficulty obtaining a Stafford loan.

Making interests payments while in school prevents the interest from capitalizing on the principal loan and keeps the price of your loan low. Find out who your loan servicer is by going to Under the Manage your Loans heading, you will see a link for Who’s my Servicer. Click on it. You will find information on loan servicers and how to find out who is servicing your loans.

We will take this into consideration as part of any other financial aid you might be eligible to receive. Typically, an employer will not provide an amount of reimbursement that exceeds the cost of what you need or what is more than the cost of attendance.
