1. Apply for admission to Delaware Valley University. Most colleges will not offer you financial aid unless you have been admitted.
     
  2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

    You should complete the FAFSA online as soon as possible after October 1 with 2016 tax information at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. Be sure to enter Delaware Valley University's Federal School Code, 003252, so that we receive your information.

    Link to the IRS to use the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) so tax information will transfer to your FAFSA.

    Complete the FAFSA by April 15 in order to qualify for the full range of financial aid programs.

    If you want to be considered for a Pennsylvania State (PHEAA) Grant, be sure to file your FAFSA prior to May 1 as this deadline is strictly enforced. The information you provide on your FAFSA will help determine your eligibility for grants, work-study programs and loans.
  3. The Office of Financial Aid will determine your eligibility for federal, state and institutional financial assistance. 

    Your financial aid will vary depending on your major, high school grades, SAT scores and your financial eligibility in relation to other applicants.
     
  4. A financial aid award letter will be sent to you.

    If you have questions, please contact the assistant director of financial aid who has been assigned to you according to your last name. A list of assistant directors of financial aid and their assignments according to last name can be found on the contact information page. 

    Financial aid is awarded using both need-based and non-need-based criteria from institutional, state, federal and private sources. Types of financial aid include scholarships, grants, employment and loans.

    For more information, or if you have a specific question, to fill out your FAFSA please call l.800.2.DELVAL or 215.489.2272 or email FinAid@delval.edu.
