|Undergraduate Catalog 2004-2006|
Aurora University students
may be eligible for financial aid from a variety of sources, including federal,
state, institutional, and private organizations in the forms of grants, loans
and work study. In 2003-04, over $25 million dollars in aid was awarded to almost
1500 undergraduate and graduate students at Aurora University.
Aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Students are advised to file before April 15th each year. The April 15th date has been established as a priority date in order to provide quality service to the financial aid recipient. Some scholarship and grant programs may have an earlier deadline. Aid applications must be received by the Friday preceding the first day of classes each term or no institutional aid may be awarded for that term. The financial aid process must be completed by the end of your first term of attendance each academic year to assure that the financial aid will be applied to your account.
The criteria used for awarding institutional financial aid are academic performance and financial need. Aid is available for both full-time and part-time undergraduate students (depending upon availability of funds). In addition to need-based financial aid, Aurora University offers several academic scholarships for both freshman and transfer students.
To apply for financial aid, please complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal Application.
The Career Services Office assists students in locating employment, both within the University and throughout the local area. Federal Work Study (FWS) funds may be earned by working in departments on-campus or at off-campus agencies that are participating in the Community Service program. To apply for on-campus or community service employment, contact the Career Services Office.
The Student Work Corps was developed for the purpose of providing students with a means of reducing their costs of attending Aurora University. The work program will provide students with an opportunity to learn and grow through their work experience. However, the work program is also a community effort. Aurora University students can assume a substantial amount of responsibility working an on-campus job. In turn, the campus relies extensively on its students to help provide all services essential to University operations. The Student Work Corps program can provide a learning experience by providing the opportunities to develop or improve upon a variety of skills, abilities, and habits, which are invaluable.
