Understand Your Award Offer
What is an Award Offer?
All accepted students who file a Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will receive an award offer from St. John’s University which indicates the types and amounts of financial aid available to the student at St. John’s.
The Office of Student Financial Services encourages students and their families to carefully review their financial aid offer and consider all available options provided to assist students in financing their education.
Financial aid offers are individualized and reflect student’s eligibility based on the information provided by them, and for dependent students their families, on the FAFSA. The offer also factors in a student’s grade level, program of study, individual program eligibility requirements and funding levels.
An aid offer may contain a variety of different financial aid programs. We encourage students to learn more about the financial aid programs in their award letters and have provided detailed information below on the various financial aid programs
