Financial Aid

Allen University’s Office of Student Financial Aid provides assistance to qualified students who would find it difficult or impossible to attend Allen University without financial assistance. Nearly 92% of Allen University students receive some type of financial assistance: grants, loans, work aid or scholarships. All students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to begin the aid process. Please go to to complete your FAFSA now.

Having long recognized the need for assistance navigating the host of financial aid options, we aim to enhance your understanding of our financial aid programs and processes, including our application process. We are ready to help you with general financial aid planning and to answer your questions about specific state, federal, private and institutional aid programs.
