Financial Assistance

If your personal resources, income and assets are insufficient to meet the total cost of your education, we encourage you to review the detailed information regarding financial assistance for undergraduate students or for graduate students on our web site. Financial aid programs have enabled thousands of students to achieve their educational goals.

Barry University participates in the full array of federal and state financial aid programs. In addition to these government-funded programs, the University offers a number of scholarships at the undergraduate level. Graduate scholarships and assistantships are also offered within specific academic programs. At Barry, we are committed to doing all we can to help you finance your education.

To determine if you are eligible for financial aid, you will need to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We encourage you to apply as soon as possible. You may complete the electronic FAFSA by logging onto the Department of Education's secure Web Site at .
