Scholarships and Financial Aid Academic Scholarships 2013-2014 Ashland University scholarships/awards are based on a sixth- or seventhsemester high school grade point average and standardized testing taken on or before February 2013. A student’s award can be increased as long as the updated information (ACT/SAT/GPA) has been submitted to the Office of Admissions by March 1, 2013. After March 1, 2013, no revisions will be made for an improved ACT, SAT or GPA. Students who apply after March 1, 2013, will have their scholarship/ financial aid award based on the test results and transcript presented at the time of application. Only full-time students paying the comprehensive rate for tuition are eligible for these scholarships and awards. Students may be eligible for need-based aid in addition to other types of aid. Transfer scholarships/awards are based on the transcript submitted at the time of application. Any changes resulting in an increase in the student’s award must be submitted to the Office of Admissions by March 1, 2013, for the fall 2013 semester. Scholarships are also available for students who begin in the spring semester.

Step by Step To apply for financial aid, complete the following steps: 1. Complete the free admission application at www.ashland.edu/apply and be accepted to the University. 2. Please make every effort to file 2012 federal tax returns (parent and student) in February. This will allow you to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the priority date of March 15, using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool if possible. 3. Apply for need-based aid by filing the FAFSA. Ashland’s Title IV code is 003012. The preferred method of filing the FAFSA is online at www.fafsa.gov. 4. Beginning in March, financial aid award letters will be mailed to those who have completed the financial aid process. 5. Apply for outside scholarships online or from your local community resources including your high school guidance counselor. Visit www.ashland.edu/financial-aid, click on “Scholarships” then “Outside Scholarships” for several links to potential opportunities.

Because no two students’ situations are alike, there really isn’t a “typical” financial aid package. However, to give you an idea of what a financial aid award looks like, we have created three sample financial aid packages.
