The University of Evansville assesses eligibility for all forms of need-based financial aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Need-based forms of financial aid require that the FAFSA be filed annually to establish and renew eligibility. Federal, state, and institutional sources may provide grants (gift-assistance that is not repaid), student loans (repaid by the student after college), and federal work-study (employment on campus). We encourage all UE students to file the FAFSA annually between October 1 and April 15 to ensure maximum consideration for all forms of need-based aid for the next academic year. Indiana residents must meet the State of Indiana April 15 filing deadline to apply for grants funded by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE).
Please note: It is not necessary to file the FAFSA to apply for or to renew UE merit-based scholarships.
