APU Grant

For students with considerable financial need, Azusa Pacific University invests millions of dollars annually to partner with families working to bridge the gap in affording the one-of-a-kind, transformational education experience offered at APU.

Qualifications

Based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA, the APU Grant considers the cost of attendance as well as resources available to the student. Eligibility for this award may change if new information is received. The student must be enrolled at least half time. Students must also complete verification, if applicable. Award amounts will not increase in subsequent years.

Yearly Amount

Amount varies, depending on financial need and available resources. The amount offered will be prorated if the student attends less than full time (9-11 units at 75%, 6-8 units at 50%). On rare occasions, the amount originally offered may be reduced or eliminated due to federal, state, and/or institutional policies. See the Stacking Financial Aid policy for more information on possible restrictions.

How to Apply

Complete the FAFSA as soon after the first FAFSA filing date as possible (October 1, 2016, for the 2017-18 FAFSA).

Disbursement

Once the student’s financial aid file is complete, this award is usually disbursed into the student’s APU account during the first month of the semester (first half of the award in fall, the second half in spring), or later depending on when documentation is received.

Renewability

Up to four years. Eligibility for this award may change if new information is received.
