Financial Aid Overview
More than 90 percent of our freshmen receive some form of financial aid, and over 75 percent receive need-based aid. We participate in federal and state grant, loan and employment programs. We also maintain our own substantial grant and employment programs for students with financial need. Students are considered for all programs for which they are eligible. Aid is provided in the form of Grants, Loans, Scholarships and Student Employment.
Aid eligibility is determined by an evaluation of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Dominican University's code is 001750.
To be eligible for federal or state aid, students must be United States citizens or permanent residents enrolled for at least six semester hours per term. To remain eligible for financial aid, students must maintain satisfactory academic progress and continue to demonstrate need on financial aid applications submitted annually.
Financial Aid Application Process
Complete the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and list Dominican University (code 001750) as the institution to receive the information.
Once you have completed the FAFSA, we will consider you automatically for all the aid programs for which you qualify. You will be notified in writing if you are required to submit additional documents (i.e. tax return, W-2's, etc.) to the financial aid office.
If you are enrolling in the 2017-2018 academic year, the FAFSA will be available on October 1, 2016. In some cases, you may be required to submit additional information to Dominican's financial aid office.
