1. Begin the Process
The sooner you file the FAFSA more likely you will be considered for assistance. After your FAFSA application has been reviewed, Chaminade will officially notify you of your eligibility.
If you are eligible for financial aid, the Financial Aid office will assemble your package and will post your award letter online in WebAdvisor.
With your Chaminade ID number, you can access your award online:
3. Accepting Your Award
Students may use the online accept/reject financial aid form in WebAdvisor to accept full or partial award amounts or to fully reject an award. You can also contact your counselor in the Financial Aid Office if you would like to discuss your financial aid options before making a decision.
Current students need to re-apply for aid each year:
To renew a Graduate-PLUS Loan:
PLUS Loans must be renewed every year. Students must apply for the PLUS loan and be approved to receive funds. Approval for prior years does not guarantee PLUS loan funding will be approved each year. Loan recipients can complete the PLUS loan application at StudentLoans.gov.
To renew an Alternative Loan:
Students who are receiving an Alternative loan must reapply for their loan every year. Just like the PLUS loan, alternative loans are credit approved loans, so they are not guaranteed each year. Students receiving an alternative loan must complete an application with their preferred vendor.
