Financial Aid 

Holy Family University is delighted to help students achieve the goal of private university education and offers several financial aid and assistance options for eligible students. The first step in the process is to apply by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), even if you don’t plan to accept federal aid. Your student aid report helps us determine whether you are eligible for financial aid.

Financial Aid Application Process

  • To be considered for financial aid, you must first file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Holy Family University’s code is 003275. Review your FAFSA for accuracy before submitting it.
  • Approximately one to two weeks after you submit your FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the federal processors. If you do not receive your SAR, call 800-433-3243 to ensure the processor received your FAFSA. 
  • You may also receive a State Grant Acknowledgment. States follow different procedures for advising students of their eligibility for state aid. Pennsylvania students will receive a notice approximately six weeks after filing the FAFSA. If you have any questions regarding the notice or if you do not receive your notice within six weeks, you may call the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) at 800-692-7392.
  • Holy Family University will receive a need analysis directly from the federal processor within one to two weeks after you file your FAFSA. Once it is received and you are accepted for admission to Holy Family University, the Financial Aid Office will provide you with an estimate of your financial aid.
