Financial Aid for Graduate Students

Loan, scholarship, and other financial aid information is available through the office of financial aid. It is the student's responsibility to seek out that information. A brief overview is offered at the admissions interview.

The purpose of the Office of Financial Aid is to provide financial aid and financial planning services to students who need assistance in order to enroll or to continue their enrollment at Barry University. The Office of Financial Aid fulfills its purpose by following established procedures and practices which ensure the equitable and consistent treatment of all financial aid applicants. The programs are administered in accordance with nationally established philosophies of financial aid for post-secondary education. The basis of these philosophies is the belief that the family is the primary resource for meeting educational expenses and financial aid is available for bridging the gap between those resources and college costs. The total cost of attending college will include not only tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, but personal and travel expenses as well. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the document used by Barry University to collect confidential information from students for the purpose of determining eligibility primarily for federal student financial aid. This information is processed by a federally-approved Multiple Data Entry processor, and the results are sent to Barry at the request of the student.

Applying for Financial Aid

After applying for admissions students should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Individuals whose applications are selected for verification may have to submit additional documentation. Students will be notified if their tax returns or verification forms are required to complete the verification process.

You are encouraged to complete the FAFSA on the internet at http// Please remember to enter Barry University’s Federal School Code of 001466 on the FAFSA, and to sign your application electronically with a PIN number . (You may also print the signature page and mail it to the address specified.)

Incoming students who apply for financial aid can expect to receive notification of their financial aid awards following notifications of acceptance to Barry. Returning students will be notified of their financial aid awards upon completion of their financial aid file.
