The Alverno aid is need-based and is separate from the merit-based scholarships.

You can expect to receive your financial aid offer within two weeks of completing your FAFSA. After you receive your offer, please schedule a meeting with a financial aid counselor throughout online schedule system: Financial Aid Meetings - Schedule your appointment! All appointments will be done by phone or virtually.
