Antioch University is committed to assisting you in pursuit of your educational goals. This section contains information about various sources of aid available to you, and the financial aid application process.
The PhD program makes every effort, with the financial aid available, to ensure that a student who is accepted can attend.
In order to be considered for any type of federal assistance, including loans, you are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit it to the Department of Education. Be sure to list the Antioch University’s school code 003010. Visit the FAFSA website.
The deadline for submitting materials to process financial aid is May 1 each year.
A: As long as a student is not in default on a previous student loan and does not owe a refund on a federal grant, the student is eligible for some type of student loan. Student income, the number of people in the household and number in college determine if the loan is need-based (subsidized) or non-need based (unsubsidized). Need-based loans are interest-free and payment-free until 6 months after the student stops attending school. The government does not pay the interest on the non-need-based loans. Individuals can choose to pay the interest on a quarterly basis or let the interest compound.
A: This process can take anywhere from two to four months depending on additional information needed. The Financial Aid Office will mail a request for additional information if the student has not supplied everything we need.
A: After completing the FAFSA and submitting all required paperwork (Antioch University Financial Aid Request Form, Entrance Counseling, etc.), the Financial Aid Office will mail all borrowers an award letter after the student is admitted to the Program. The award letter will indicate the total eligibility for the academic school year (July 1 through June 30).
A: Student loan disbursements generally are scheduled for the first day of the quarter/ semester. Perkins Loans are disbursed once a promissory note and pre-loan information sheet is completed at the beginning of the term. Once each of the funds has been disbursed, overage checks are created within three to five business days and placed in the mail to the student.
A: When the FAFSA is completed, the student will report the actual income. To be considered for special circumstances, the student will need to submit a letter to the Financial Aid Office explaining the special circumstances along with any supporting documentation.
A: You can contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
