How do I apply for financial aid?
U.S. citizens and permanent residents (green card holders) may apply for federal financial aid. Go to fafsa.ed.gov
and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
online. DePaul’s university code is 001671. You’ll need to complete a
FAFSA for each academic year that you want to receive financial aid.
Federal Direct Stafford Loans allow students to borrow money from the federal government to pay for university
expenses. These loans are processed directly through the Office of
Financial Aid. This office will provide you with the necessary
paperwork; to borrow you do not need to contact a lender.
Unsubsidized Stafford: Eligibility for unsubsidized direct loans is
not based on financial need. You may borrow the cost of education minus
all other financial aid you receive, up to the annual direct loan
maximum. However, you must either pay the interest while you are
enrolled, or it will be accrued and capitalized to the principal.
Repayment of the principal is deferred until you graduate or cease to be
enrolled at least half time.
Once your FAFSA information has been received and processed, you will
be able to accept your student loans online through your Campus
