Financial Aid

Welcome to Financial Aid at Bloomsburg University

Your education and college finances matter to us. Bloomsburg University is here to help you prepare and be financially fit for your education. Please review the Guide to Financial Aid for more information on how to apply and what financial aid may be available to you.

Getting Started

  • For disbursement dates of financial aid, please see Availability of Funds
  • File the FAFSA 2019-2020 starting October 1, 2018. If you are a Pennsylvania resident enrolled as an undergraduate you must file by May 1, 2019 to be considered for state grant assistance. This includes the Summer 2019, Fall 2019 or Spring 2020 semesters. Be sure to visit www.fafsa.gov to file for FREE!
  • Create an FSA ID (username and password) at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm. If you are a dependent student, one parent will also need to create an FSA ID.
  • PA residents only – Complete the Pennsylvania State Grant form via the FAFSA or through Account Access on www.pheaa.org.
  • Review Bloomsburg University Scholarship opportunities.
    • Transfer/Incoming freshman - most scholarships are awarded by the Admissions Office.
    • Current students – applications are available January 1, 2019 with the deadline of March 1, 2019.
  • Sign a FERPA form to release your information to those you choose other than yourself.
  • Check your BU email and your My Husky account "To Do List." Your university email is the primary form of communication between you and our office.
  • Award letters for incoming students for the 2019-2020 academic year who have completed a 2019-2020 FAFSA will be sent mid-February 2019. Upperclassmen who have a completed 2019-2020 FAFSA will be notified of eligibility on MyHusky in mid-May after Spring 2019 grades are posted. Recipients of Pennsylvania State Grants will be notified in mid-May 2019 by PHEAA.

FAFSA Tips

  • Never pay to file the FAFSA.
  • Store your FSA ID in a secure place. Your parent should do the same. You will use it for multiple years and many items.
  • Use prior/prior tax year information (2017) when filing out the FAFSA 2019-2020.
  • Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, if possible, within the FAFSA to transfer tax data.
