Applying for Financial Aid

Big Changes coming with the 2024-2025 FAFSA  

Applying for Financial Aid

Assumption University strongly encourages everyone to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) – you and your family may be pleasantly surprised by the funding you may receive.
The majority of financial aid awards made by Assumption University are based upon “demonstrated financial need.” Student need is the difference between the average cost of attending Assumption University minus your and your family’s ability to contribute toward these costs, as calculated from the information you provided on the FAFSA.

Begin the process

  • Students and their parent/guardian must obtain an FSA ID prior to filling out the application.
  • Instructions on creating your FSA ID
  • Complete the FAFSA online. The 2024-2025 FAFSA will be available to complete in December 2023.  Please refer to the FAFSA Simplification (see below) tab for more information.    
  • Include Assumption's School Code, 002118, so we receive your FAFSA information.

Filing the FAFSA Online

Assumption University strongly recommends you file the 2024-2025 FAFSA at when it becomes available in December 2023. 

Additional documentation requests

Students may be asked to remit additional documentation to determine financial aid eligibility. The most common request is due to a process called verification. For more information on the verification process, please refer to the Policies & Guidelines section.

Financial Aid Awarding Timeline

We strongly encourage all students to apply for financial aid by filing the 2024-2025 FAFSA when it becomes available in December 2023. 

Admission Decision Timelines

Financial Aid offers will be sent out to newly admitted undergraduate students with a valid 2024-2025 FAFSA on a rolling basis beginning in February 2024.

Returning undergraduate students who meet the filing deadline and have remitted all requested documents can access their 2024-2025 financial aid offer via the My.Assumption portal in mid-June 2024.  

Assumption’s Priority FAFSA filing deadlines:

New First-Year Students: March 15
New Transfer Students: March 31
Returning Students: March 31

Students who file their FAFSAs after the priority filing deadline can still apply for financial assistance but could have their financial aid offer delayed as a result of not meeting the deadline.
