Financial FAQs

What is the FAFSA?

What is financial aid?

Financial Aid provides assistance in paying for college and can be in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and workstudy.

Are payment plans available for out of pocket expenses?

What do I need to do to receive a financial aid package from Creighton?

My family probably won't qualify for need-based aid. Should I complete the FAFSA anyway?

We encourage all families to complete the FAFSA because some loans require that a student has filed a FAFSA to qualify.

Is there a deadline when applying for financial aid at Creighton?

We encourage students to have their processed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with Creighton's Financial Aid Office by April 1 to receive priority awarding. Applications received after April 1 will be considered as funding allows.

How do I report special circumstances that might influence my eligibility for financial aid?

The Financial Aid Office will ask you to provide additional information in a supplemental financial aid form. You may also contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

How do I apply for merit scholarship?

The application for admission doubles as the application for scholarships. You need to apply by the extended deadline of March 1, 2015, in order to receive priority consideration for Creighton's scholarships.

Competitive supplemental scholarships are also available to applicants and are due by February 1.
