Financial Aid: How to Apply

Financial Aid is awarded based on a 9-month academic year, not by calendar year. Students must apply for financial aid each academic year for which they wish to receive financial aid. This normally occurs in the Spring, but students entering in a Spring term can apply in the Fall.  Financial aid applications for new students are reviewed only after the Consortial Financial Aid Office has been notified that a student has been admitted.

Financial Aid Programs and Eligibility

The GTU Consortial Financial Aid Office administers financial aid on behalf of the member schools of the consortium. While the financial aid application process is similar for all students, each institution has its own deadlines, financial aid programs, and eligibity requirements. This page describes the types of financial aid administered by the Consortial Financial Aid Office and the eligibility requirements for each program, including Institutional Aid, Federal Direct Loans, Federal Work-Study and Federal Perkins loans.

Financial Aid Office

The GTU Consortial Financial Aid Office administers financial aid for students at all of the seminaries and graduate schools of the Graduate Theological Union. Our fundamental purpose is to help students meet the cost of their education. The information on this site will help you understand your financial aid options and how to apply.

Voter Registration

Schools in most states and the District of Columbia must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to their students. This voter registration requirement was included in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. In essence, if a Title IV (Federal Student Aid) participating school is located in a state that requires voter registration prior to election day and/or does not allow the ability to register at the time of voting, then the school must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to its federal student aid eligible students.
