Investing In Your Future

One of the best investments a student can make is in their education, and Alliance University is dedicated to making it possible. In addition to our scholarships and grants, there are a variety of financial aid options including federal aid, state aid, work-study programs, and loans to help you afford the cost of your education. These funding options can assist you in covering expenses from tuition to housing to books and supplies.

The financial aid journey doesn’t have to be walked alone. Our Student Financial Services team is here to help you navigate the process of financially securing your future at Alliance University.

Applying for Aid

Before you can apply for financial aid, you must first be accepted to Alliance University. After you have been admitted, you can then begin the process of securing your financial aid. Follow the steps below to help you get started. And remember, our Financial Counselors are happy to answer any questions along the way!

1. Complete FAFSA

The first step in the financial aid process is to complete the FAFSA. This provides Alliance University with the information needed to deliver personalized aid packages that fit your needs. The information you provide will help determine your eligibility for a variety of federal and state aid programs, including grants and loans.

The school code for Alliance University is 002790. If this code is listed on the FAFSA, your results will be sent to us electronically.

You can file your FAFSA for the following academic year starting October 1.

Note: You may be selected for a process called verification. If so, you are required to complete a verification worksheet, as well as provide additional income information in the form of IRS Federal 1040 tax transcripts and W-2s. Students who are selected for verification are often eligible for federal grant money.



2. Receive Award Letter

Once you have applied for the FAFSA, your Alliance University Award Letter will inform what grants, scholarships, and other aid you are eligible for. Students can expect to receive their letters starting February 1st.

3. Review Financial Aid Package & Submit Documents

When you receive your award letter, review the financial aid package carefully and submit all required documents to our office in a timely manner. Review your cost worksheet/annual bill and select a payment plan to cover the balance for the year.

All required documents are included in your financial aid package, but if you need additional copies, please contact our office.



4. Assess Loans and Additional Funding

Your financial aid package will indicate if you are awarded Federal Direct Loans. If you are eligible, you can apply for the following loans:

Direct Stafford Loans
Direct PLUS Loans

For options outside of federal funding, you can explore Alternative Loans – typically called Private Loans.

If you were awarded Federal Work-Study, your counselor will help coordinate with you to obtain a job on-campus.

Note: When taking out loans to pay for school, remember you are making an investment. Borrow wisely and only if absolutely necessary to pay for college-related costs.


Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to attend Alliance University?

For information on tuition and cost of Alliance University’s undergraduate, graduate and seminary degree programs, please visit here.

Do I have to apply for financial aid every year?

Yes. Your eligibility for federal, state and institutional aid will be evaluated each year, based on the information provided on the FAFSA.

When will I hear from Student Financial Services about how much financial aid I will be receiving?

Your notification depends on several factors. Students are awarded in the order that the FAFSA processor receives the FAFSA application, and when we receive any additional required documents. The first batch of award letters usually goes out starting February 1st. The earlier you complete your FAFSA and any additional required documents, the earlier you may receive your financial aid package and award letter.


Do I still need to fill out my FAFSA even though I don’t think I will qualify for any need-based aid?

Yes. Our office recommends that all students file the FAFSA. Many factors other than family income are considered in calculating need. Even if you believe your family’s income is too high, you may still be eligible for some federal aid in the form of low-interest loans.


Do I have to accept all the loan funds I am offered?

No. You can choose to reduce the amount of the loan or refuse the entire loan. We will offer a loan that is the maximum amount for which the student is eligible. Nevertheless, you do not have to accept the loans that you qualify for if loans are not needed. You may contact our office and speak with your Financial Aid Counselor for more information.


What scholarships are available through Alliance University?
