Welcome to Financial Aid

At Newman, we believe a high-quality, private college education should be an affordable option for students, regardless of age or interest. Several financial aid sources are available to traditional, transfer and adult students who enroll at Newman, including annual, renewable scholarships, institutional grants, and more.

Awarding Policy

The Financial Aid Office at Newman University assists academically capable and qualified students who might otherwise be unable to obtain an education at the university.  The Financial Aid Office provides aid to all students with documented financial need without regard to race, color, creed, sex, handicap, and national or ethnic orgin.

Newman University expects the parents and student to contribute what they can toward the cost of the student's education.  To the extent that funds are available, awards to meet financial need -- costs over and beyond the family contribution -- will be arranged in a financial aid package containing both gift and self-help forms of assistance that will best serve the student.  Consideration for aid is given first to students who meet the priority deadline for the submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and completion of their financial aid file.

To be considered for financial aid, applicants must:

  1. Complete admission procedures,
  2. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA),
  3. Submit any supplemental forms, and;
  4. Enroll in an eligible certificate or degree program.

Student aid funds are made available only for purposes directly related to obtaining an education at Newman University, including tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, and modest personal expenses.  Classes being taken must be going toward an eligible academic program.

Should a student receiving federal funds find it necessary to withdraw from courses at Newman University, the appropriate federal program must be refunded per the federal return policy.
