The goal of the Financial Aid Office is to provide a financial package to cover the difference between the student’s budget and the amount revealed by his or her official need analysis. Current students and prospective students are urged to file an application for financial aid early and follow-up on any additional information needed to make an award. The University’s Financial Aid Office, which is located on the first floor of Delany Hall, is available to assist with the application process.



Eligibility Requirements

As staff at Saint Augustine’s University (SAU), we believe any student who wishes to pursue their educational goals should be able to do so. As part of that commitment, our Financial Aid and Scholarships office will work with you to receive the financial assistance you need to attend SAU.

If you think you will need assistance, the first step is to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form. Saint Augustine’s University Federal School Code is 002968. Your information must then go through the process of verification.

A FSA ID is required to complete the FAFSA, and for more information on financial aid, scroll down.
