Priority financial aid consideration, including merit scholarships
SPU Merit Scholarships: You will automatically be considered for any scholarships for which you are eligible, based on your admissions application. Information you provide in "Involvement and Activities" is important for determining scholarship eligibility.
Outside Scholarships: SPU receives scholarship notices periodically from outside agencies and organizations. You must apply directly to the organizations listed to be considered. Check out this website to view scholarship web links, tips, and a listing of awards.
Fill out the FAFSA early! Apply as soon as possible after January 1 so that you may receive timely financial aid information.
You will need a federal ID and password (personal identification number) to complete your FAFSA or renewal FAFSA. Important: Your parents may apply for a federal ID and password also. They can use these credentials to electronically sign the FAFSA.
Make sure SPU's Title IV code (003788) is listed on your FAFSA.
Once your application is processed, the government will send a copy to both you and SPU. Please review for errors and correct as needed.
