Apply for Financial Aid

Every student who submits an application to Saint Joseph's is automatically considered for merit scholarships. We also offer a number of academic and achievement scholarships. You also may be eligible for need-based grants, loans, and federal work study programs. To be considered for need based financial assistance you must fill out and complete the FAFSA. All admitted students should reference this page and will  receive a financial aid award package from Saint Joseph's via The Nest.

You omay complete the FAFSA (Free Applicationfor Federal Student Aid) starting on October 1, 2016, our school code is 003367. We encourage you to file and submit as soon as you are able.  

  • When filling out the FAFSA you will be prompted to link to the IRS website, which will display your tax information and give you the option of transferring the data to your FAFSA. We recommend taking advantage of the IRS Data Retrieval option. 2016 is the first year that families are able to use tax information from the prior year. i.e., families can use 2015 tax information for filing the 2017-2018 FAFSA.  If you are selected for verification and opted out of the IRS Data Retrieval process, you will have to submit an IRS tax transcript directly from the IRS to complete the federal verification process.
