Applying for Federal Student Aid
In order to apply for federal student aid, including student loans, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The University of Denver’s school code is 001371. Remember that you should complete the FAFSA each academic year in order to remain eligible for federal student aid.
Here are the steps for applying for financial aid:

Complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for federal student aid and must be completed each academic year in order to remain eligible. Please reference the charts below to determine which FAFSA to complete based on your desired start date.
The requirements for private scholarships will vary depending on the funding source. Some awards have a minimum GPA requirement. Contact your funding source directly for information on specific policies.
