2023-24 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. The 2023-2024 FAFSA is intended for students who plan to register in the 2023-2024 school year. By submitting a FAFSA, we will be able to determine what grants and student loans are available. Students wishing to be considered for only scholarships each year do not need to submit a FAFSA but should e-mail email@example.com to let us know.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
- Using your 2020 tax return, file a 2023-2024 FAFSA. 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. (If you do not plan to file a FAFSA this year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know, so that we can change your status to “scholarship only” and disburse your Augsburg scholarships to your tuition account.)
- Attention Minnesota residents only: Look carefully at the confirmation page immediately upon completion of the online FAFSA. If you are prompted to apply for MN state-based financial aid, click on the link and answer the additional required questions (MN State Grant Questionnaire).
- Submit Additional Documentation as Requested. Some students will be selected for Verification. Verification is a process in which the Financial Aid office must verify certain information that the student and/or parent provided on the FAFSA. Students selected for Verification 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 about each document.
Student Loan Options
Students may also wish to utilize student loans in order to help cover the cost of their education. Information about federal and private student loans can be found on your loans webpage.
