Scholarship/Financial Aid Renewability

University, federal, state or private need-based assistance programs awarded on FAFSA information are not automatically renewed from year to year. These funds are limited and subject to the availability of funds.

A FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA must be submitted each new academic year, on or as soon after January 1 as possible, and in no event later than March 1. The FAFSA must be submitted to the federal FAFSA processor to establish new academic year, need-based assistance eligibility.

While the need-based SLU Grant does require annual FAFSA filing between January 1 and March 1 and a showing of financial need for award consideration, the majority of University merit, characteristic and talent Scholarships are renewed each year without Scholarship re-application or FAFSA filing, assuming the scholar has maintained the minimum renewal criteria required for the specific scholarship program.
