What financial aid is available at HU?
Loans: borrowed money that must be repaid with interest
Grants: money that you don’t need to repay unless you don’t finish school
(Official government details)
Who should apply for financial aid?
You should. There’s no guarantee that you will qualify for anything (though you’d be surprised who does), but there’s zero disadvantage to trying; grant money doesn’t need to be paid back. Loans require more of a decision, as they must be paid back with interest, but are often helpful.
How much does it cost to apply for financial aid?
$0. There is no fee from Horizon University or from the federal government to apply for financial aid.
Steps to Apply for Financial Aid
There are two steps to applying for financial aid: applying with the government, and then applying with Horizon University.
Step 1: Apply with the Federal Government (FAFSA)
- Click that blue button and follow the steps. You’ll need a lot of personal information handy, including your SSN, tax records, and bank statements. Check out this great FAFSA guide for the full list.
- When you’re done, you’ll get an EFC number. You may need this for step 2.
Step 2: Apply with Horizon University (Student Interview)
Once you have completed the FAFSA and have your EFC number, you can begin HU’s financial aid process.
