Financial Aid

Alvernia University strives to keep its programs affordable; however, you may still need assistance defraying the cost of your degree. Financial assistance programs at the federal, community and institutional level can help you reduce the out-of-pocket expenses of your college tuition. Discover what types of aid are available and how you can apply; our enrollment counselors are available to answer all of your questions.

Types of Financial Aid

Several types of financial aid are available; some types of aid include:

  • Loans: Money that you borrow from either federal or private lenders for college expenses. The amount, as well as the interest that accrues during the life of the loan, must be repaid. Look at federal loans first, as they often have a lower interest rate than private lenders such as banks.
  • Grants: Assistance that does not have to be repaid. Grants are primarily need-based.
  • Scholarships: Free money that is given to a student due to an accomplishment such as excellent grades, athletics or community activities. Scholarships are primarily merit-based.
  • GI Bill benefits: Support provided to either active duty or retired military personnel. Money is awarded based on service time. Benefits do not have to be repaid.
