Financial Aid FAQs
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®)
What is included In a financial aid award?
Your personalized financial plan may consist of several types of aid such as grants, loans, scholarships or self-help aid.
When do I need to complete the financial aid process?
Students should apply for financial aid as soon as possible each year. The FAFSA® is available on October 1st.
How is eligibility for tuition assistance determined?
Tuition assistance is a benefit that your individual employer may offer. To determine if any tuition assistance or tuition reimbursement opportunities are available, you should inquire directly with your employer.
Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit provided to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. Each branch of service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process and restrictions. If you are a service member, work with your Branch and appropriate education office to determine your eligibility.
How will my financial aid change if i receive a scholarship or grant?
We encourage you to investigate all possibilities for assistance, including outside scholarships from corporations and private organizations and state-funded programs . If you receive such awards, your Financial Aid award may be revised to reduce or remove your loans.
Are there limits to the amount of financial aid I can receive?
Financial assistance for college students is available to those who apply and qualify. One option, the Federal Pell Grant, is awarded to undergraduate students who have not yet earned a bachelor’s, graduate or professional degree and display exceptional financial need. Award amounts for the Pell Grant may change yearly. The Pell Grant award amount a student is eligible for will depend on their EFC, Cost of attendance (COA), and enrollment status.
Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loan programs are another financial aid option you may consider. These have both annual and aggregate loan limits. The maximum amount an undergraduate student can borrow each academic year in subsidized and unsubsidized loans ranges from $5,500 to $12,500 depending on your grade level and dependency status. Graduate or professional students can borrow up to $20,500 each academic year in Federal Direct Unsubsidized loans.
Since each student is unique, we recommend you speak with a Student Support Advisor who can provide detailed information on financial aid eligibility based on your individual situation.
What if I don't qualify for need-based aid?
Students who do not receive need-based financial aid awards are still eligible to apply for other loans, payment plans and parent loans. These are all made available to help families fit tuition payments into their budgets more easily.
What if my personal or financial information changes after I complete the financial aid process?
Federal regulations allow aid administrators to consider extenuating circumstances when calculating aid eligibility, especially if your situation changes during the application process. If you or your family experiences any of the following, please contact your Student Support Advisor and submit an appeal to your DeVry University Student Central Office.
- Death of a parent or spouse
- Physical impairment
- Divorce or separation
- Unusual medical or dental expenses
- Recent loss of employment
- Dramatic change in income

I applied for financial aid last year, would I need to reapply this year?

What's the difference between subsidized and unsubsidized student loans?
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans are available to eligible undergraduate and graduate students. Federal Direct Subsidized Loans are available only to eligible undergraduate students.
Additional differences between the two loans are:
•Subsidized loan eligibility is based on financial need, whereas an unsubsidized loan is not.
•The government pays the interest on subsidized loans while the student is enrolled in school at least half-time, where interest on unsubsidized loans accrue while in school and capitalize, if unpaid.
How do I obtain more information about education tax credits?
You may be eligible for credit that could save you money at tax time. To learn about education tax credits and other tax information for students please visit www.irs.gov.
What happens to my financial aid if I withdraw?
According to federal regulations, a federal refund calculation must be performed if a student withdraws completely from all classes after the start of the enrollment period. For more details, contact your Student Support Advisor or reference the Federal Return of Funds Policy in our academic catalog.
What happens to my loan if I need to take a semester off?
When a student is unable to attend a term, future disbursements are canceled.
