Coleman University participates in various Federal student financial assistance programs. The financial aid programs are designed to provide assistance to students who are currently enrolled or accepted for enrollment, but whose financial resources are inadequate to meet the full cost of their education.
The majority of financial aid available to students is provided by the Federal Government and is referred to as federal student financial aid (SFA). This includes the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans. The University also utilizes alternative source funding provided by the institution or private agencies. Alternative source Private loans enable the student to contribute to his/her education while in University (credit restrictions may apply).

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION
Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. To apply for federal financial aid, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application must be completed with extreme care and accuracy. Our Student Financial Aid Officers are available to assist students in the completion of this form and to answer any questions.
The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for all types of financial aid programs. Once processed, the application will produce an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) which determines eligibility.
Financial aid from federal programs is available for those who qualify and is not guaranteed from one year to the next. Each student must reapply every year. Also, if the student changes universities, the aid does not automatically go with them. Each student should check with the new university to find out the appropriate procedures for reapplying for financial aid.
Once the application is completed, the information will be used in a formula established by the Congress that calculates need and helps determine eligibility. When combined with other aid and resources, a student’s aid package may not exceed the cost of attendance.
