Financial Aid - How to Apply For Financial Aid

All the forms needed to apply for financial aid are available in the Financial Aid Office

  1. First complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Lutheran School of Nursing does not have a school code to list on the application, you must list another school on the application. You may file online at or download a paper copy. If you need assistance completing the FAFSA and are admitted to the school please contact the financial aid office for workshop dates (You must bring copies of income information such as tax forms to receive assistance completing the form).

  2. You will receive a Student Aid Report by mail or email within two weeks after completing the FAFSA. At this time print a pdf copy of the Student Aid Report (SAR) and submit to the school. Please submit the document via mail, fax or in person. Email copies will not be accepted. Unless additional documentation is needed or you have not been admitted to the school your financial aid package can be finalized.

  3. If additional information is needed to complete your application due to verification, conflicting information or insufficient information you will receive an email to log into the student portal and view the information under my document tracking. Please submit the requested information as soon as possible.

  4. You will be emailed to accept or decline your awards. Acceptance online is based on your electronic signature.

  5. If an award includes an Institutional Loan you must sign a retail installment agreement. You will be notified when the form is available to be signed electronically online.

  6. Under my financial aid in CAMS you can view the expected disbursement date. When funds are transferred to your account a red @ will show next to the award. Disbursements to students will generally occur within fourteen calendar days of funds posting to the student ledger. Pending funds are not posted.

  7. Before funds are disbursed your academic progress is checked. New students are considered in good standing. Students not in good standing or financial aid warning or financial aid probation are ineligible to receive financial aid funds.

  8. Apply for scholarships using on-line database under financial resources on this website, contacting local civic and fraternal organizations, and/or your employer or parents’ employer.
