Financial Aid

Financial Aid: Step-by-Step Guide
Step 1: Apply for admission.

You can do it all online.

Step 2: Review scholarship information.

To help you out, you’re automatically considered for scholarships when you’re accepted for admission. We’ve got a scholarship calculator to allow you to see how it would work.

Step 3: Complete your FAFSA.

To be considered for financial aid or federal loans, you must complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The code you’ll need for Warner is 008848.

Step 4: Apply for FRAG.

Full-time students who’ve been Florida residents for 12 consecutive months can also apply for a Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG). Contact Student Financial Services for more information.

Step 5: Apply for Loans.

Student loans are available to assist students in meeting the cost of education. Students will need an FSA ID Username and Password to apply for the Federal Stafford loan. Dependent students will require their parent’s FSA ID Username and Password to complete a Parent Plus loan.

 

Loans

Many students find federal loans to be the best way to pay for their college education. That’s why we participate in the Federal Direct Loan Program, which consists of the Federal Direct Stafford (subsidized) Loan, the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, the Federal Direct PLUS Loan, and the Federal Direct Consolidation Loan Program. The U.S. Department of Education is the lender and, except for consolidation loans, delivers loan proceeds through the school. WU disburses the loans after loans have been processed and approved and classes have begun. When it is time for repayment, students (or their parents) will send all loan payments to the federal loan servicer.

If all of this seems overwhelming, our financial aid counselors can guide you through the process of applying for loans. They’ll work with you to make this experience as easy as possible. If you have any questions, please call our office directly at (863) 638-7202.

To apply for a Student Loan (or PLUS Loan) you must:

  1. Complete the FAFSA.
  2. Complete entrance counseling for Student Loans.
  3. Complete a Loan Application. https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/index.action.
Grants

Grants are financial awards from the federal and state governments that do not have to be paid back. Grants are awarded to students who meet the required set of qualifications. All U.S. citizens (and eligible non-citizens) must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each school year in order to determine eligibility for federal grants. In addition, Warner University offers several other grants for eligible students.
