Applying for financial aid ... is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Applying for financial aid can be a painless process if you keep in mind some helpful hints and follow the instructions provided here. If you'd like to determine how much aid you'll need to attend Marquette, please visit the FAFSA4caster.

  1. Get organized
    To complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, you will need to:
    • Gather your and your spouse's most recent tax information. It's good to file the FAFSA based on a completed tax return. However, it's far better to file the FAFSA early with estimates than later with exact figures. If you won't have your taxes done by early February, estimate.
    • Health professions students are encouraged to supply parent data on the FAFSA in order to be considered for the Health Professions Loan (for dental students) and Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students (Dental/DPT/PA)
    • Apply for a personal identification number online. This will serve as your electronic signature on your FAFSA application.
  2. Submit the FAFSA
    The FAFSA is available online.
    • Complete all sections about you, your school plans and financial information.
    • List Marquette University. Our school code is 003863.
    • Provide your PIN. Don't forget to include your parent's PIN or your FAFSA will be rejected.
    • Submit your information.
    • Print out and keep a copy of your submitted information for your records.
  3. FAFSA follow-up
    Here's what happens after you file the FAFSA:
    • You will receive a Student Aid Report. Check it for accuracy and follow up on any requests for additional information.
    • Your Expected Family Contribution is calculated from information you provided on the FAFSA and is listed on your SAR. The EFC is the amount your family is expected to contribute to your education for the upcoming year.
    • If you have special or extraordinary circumstances notify the Office of Student Financial Aid in writing.
    • Your financial aid award will be mailed to you. Read and follow all instructions.
