Apply for Aid
What to Expect After Filing
- Approximately three days
after submitting the on-line FAFSA you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR)
from the processor via e-mail. If asked for additional information, update the
SAR following the instructions and resubmit the application on-line. If the SAR
is complete, carefully review application data for accuracy. Correct any errors
following correction instructions. Be sure The University of Scranton is listed
as a college choice.
- By filing the FAFSA
Pennsylvania residents will automatically be considered for the Pennsylvania
State Grant. In some cases the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency
(PHEAA) may request additional information. Respond promptly to any such
requests. PHEAA normally transmits official notification of eligibility
beginning May 15.
- Most colleges will send an
official notification of eligibility, commonly referred to as an award letter,
indicating institutional awards and estimates of federal and state aid. The
University of Scranton notifies accepted applicants beginning in March and
continuing through the end of April.
- Respond promptly to all
requests for additional information. They may have an impact on your
eligibility for assistance.
