We know it can be overwhelming to make a financial plan for your education. Our Financial Aid Office is happy to help you strategize solutions to make your dream a reality.

Federal Student Aid

Birthwise students are eligible for federal student aid (Title IV Funds) including Stafford subsidized and unsubsidized loans, Pell grants and Parent Plus loans. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine if you qualify for financial aid. 

Birthwise students can also receive funding from Americorps and the GI Bill.

Financial aid is not awarded until you have officially enrolled. To remain eligible for financial aid, you must register for at least six credit hours per semester, as determined by the US Department of Education. You must maintain satisfactory academic standing.

You can begin filling out the FAFSA for the next school year on October 1. The deadline is June 30 of the following year.
