Cost and Aid

Explaining the Costs and Financial Aid Process

A university’s cost and aid process can seem a bit mysterious. You submit a FAFSA, and you get a financial aid offer. Behind the scenes, Saint Francis is working with the Office of Federal Student Aid, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, and scholarship committees to offer you the most affordable options we can. Here, we do our best to provide clear and straightforward financial aid explanations so that you can make informed and confident decisions.
