We’ll help you understand the ins and outs of financial aid.

The financial aspects of going back to college can be challenging to understand. At St. Edward’s, our Student Financial Services team of experts is ready to provide the guidance and help you need. You’ll be paired with a financial aid advisor who will work with you throughout your time at St. Edward’s — answering questions, providing resources and informing you about payment plan options.

To help you get started, we’ve distilled the process down to the following three steps. We’re committed to helping you complete your college education, with financial aid options that meet your needs.

Step 1
Apply for Admission

Be sure to use the St. Edward's online or printed application to apply for admission. If you have questions about financial aid prior to applying, please contact Student Financial Services at 512-448-8523.

Fall Application Deadline: July 1
Spring Application

Step 2
Complete the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) asks questions about a family's income and assets to determine an Expected Family Contribution, or EFC. Make sure to list the St. Edward’s federal school code, 003621, in the school release section so the university gets your results.

You will receive an email acknowledgement from the Department of Education. (If you do not receive a response within 48 hours, contact the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 800-433-3243.) St. Edward’s should receive your FAFSA results within a week. In our student portal, myHilltop, you can track when we receive your FAFSA information. 

Step 3
Notification of Awards

After you’re admitted and have provided all the required awarding documents, you’ll receive an award email. Financial aid awards are also displayed in myHilltop. You’ll view and accept the aid offer and complete any additional requirements to secure your aid offer in myHilltop.
