Financial Aid Options

AHU online offers a range of financial aid options for eligible students, which can help reduce the cost of your degree.

To qualify for financial aid, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as well as AHU’s Financial Aid application.

The types of financial aid available vary based on your financial status and your degree status. Common types of aid include:

Federal Grants

Federal grants such as the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant and the Pell Grant are available to undergraduate students who haven’t completed a bachelor’s degree yet and who demonstrate significant financial need.

Federal Grants

State Grants

Florida has several grant programs for residents of the state (who need to live in Florida for at least 12 months before applying) who demonstrate financial need and who are pursuing an undergraduate degree.

State Grants


AHU offers several scholarships to students based on either financial need or academic merit. Eligibility requirements vary by award.


Federal and Private Student Loans

Some students apply for federal student loans or loans from private institutions to help cover the cost of attendance. Loan limits and eligibility requirements are based on the type of degree you are pursuing and whether or not you are working with a federal student loan provider or a private bank. Keep in mind that you do need to repay any loans you take out after you complete or leave your degree program.
