Graduate Financial Aid

Financial Aid Instructions: Fall 2023 – Summer 2024

Applying for financial aid can sometimes be an intimidating process. We are here to help guide you through it by providing step by step instructions on how to apply.  To receive federal student loans funds, you must file a FAFSA. Students not interested in borrowing loans to cover their education expenses, should e-mail to let us know that they are only interested in any awarded scholarship funds and will not be filing a FAFSA.

If you are interested in federal student loans:

1. File a 2023-2024 FAFSA using your 2021 tax return.  Make sure to submit the FAFSA by signing with your FSA ID. Augsburg’s school code is 002334.  Review the Common FAFSA Filing Errors before you click submit.

2. Submit Additional Documentation as Requested. You will be notified via email by Augsburg on what additional documentation is required. You can also “Track Your Financial Aid” and view the documents tab to see if additional documentation is required. Review Augsburg’s Document Descriptions for details on financial aid documents.
