Need Based Financial Aid

Aquinas Institute offers several need-based, partial-tuition grants to both new applicants and current students.  Students must be enrolled in a degree program or certificate to be eligible for need-based aid.

There are multiple steps in the need-based financial aid process, depending on citizenship. All students, regardless of citizenship, must complete the Aquinas Institute Application for Need-Based Aid.  Domestic students must also complete the FAFSA and the registration process with our third-party loan service. International students must also complete a supplemental application.
