Financial Aid

Affording your

ALVERNO EDUCATION

An Alverno education will get you ready for your future. It has the power to transform your life as well as the lives of your family members and your community. That’s why we don’t want anything to stand in your way.

The Alverno Financial Aid team is here to help you, from putting together your initial financial aid package to helping you manage the cost of your education. And we’ll help you make sure that when you leave here, you do so on solid ground.

Our Division features dedicated Financial Wellness and Success Resources to support your financial understanding, planning, navigation, and confidence all throughout your Alverno journey.

UPCOMING FAFSA EVENTS!

Plan to attend our FAFSA session to learn more about how to navigate the sometimes frustrating process of filling out the FAFSA . We will have refreshments at this in-person event.

Students and families can hear from Financial Aid and have the opportunity to ask questions. The session is also an opportunity to look at your form with a staff member to understand the process and where you might be stuck.

  • In-Person FAFSA Day – November 29th at 6:30 p.m., Alverno College Computer Lab in the Sister Joel Read Center's Computer Lab, Room RC 111.

You don’t have to fill out your FAFSA or Alverno Institutional Form alone! Join us in the computer lab to work on them, along with refreshments, information, and hands-on help.

A Hispanic-Serving Institution

As a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), all Alverno undergraduate and graduate students – regardless of race or ethnicity – are eligible to apply for scholarships administered by the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. Explore a list of current scholarship opportunities for students of HSIs.

LET’S GET STARTED

 

The 2022-23 and 2023-24 FAFSA application is available. You can complete the FAFSA on your phone with the new FAFSA mobile app from both the Apple App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android)

Filing by the Feb. 1, 2023 priority date will ensure you are considered for the maximum amount of financial aid for 2023-24 FAFSA application.

Alverno's Federal Code: 003832

Use the following links to help answer any questions you may have about the FAFSA:

Many employers offer tuition reimbursement for their employees and sometimes their employee’s families. Check with your employer, as well as your spouse’s or parent’s employers, to see if tuition reimbursement is available. Even if tuition reimbursement is not available, organizations may offer scholarships for employees or employee family members.

If you’re looking for a great way to help others, make a meaningful contribution to society, and earn some college funding on the side, volunteering with AmeriCorps may be right for you. Learn more at Americorps.

If you receive DVR funds for living expenses, there may be a training grant available to use toward your education. Contact your local Department of Vocational Rehabilitation to see if you qualify.

The military offers opportunities to fund your college education. This decision should be based on a careful examination of whether serving in America’s armed forces is right for you. If you are the dependent of a military veteran, active duty service member or veteran, you may be eligible for benefits. Visit http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/ to learn more or talk to your Education Liaison Representative.

If you are an American Indian or Indigenous American, there may be funds available to you both through your affiliated tribe and/or through state agencies. Contact your tribal benefit coordinator to see if you are eligible.
