90% of our adult students receive some form of financial aid, including federal and state loans, grants and scholarships. To participate in most loan programs, you must be taking at least six credits or more each semester.
Paying for Your Education
For those who qualify, there are financial aid resources available to assist students with meeting the cost of college, including loans, scholarships, and grants. The first step to apply for these resources is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For detailed instructions, please visit our Undergraduate Financial Aid page.
Grants and Scholarships
All Augsburg University grant amounts for the Adult Undergraduate program are $50.00 off per credit. This grant is made available to students at the time of their admission only and may not be used concurrently with any other institutional scholarship or grant program.
