What you need to know about grants, loans and more

APSU School Code: 003478

Financial aid is available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and federal work study. The federal government, state of Tennessee, lending institutions, private agencies and postsecondary institutions may offer financial aid assistance. Most federal and state funded financial aid programs are awarded on the basis of proven financial need. Need is defined as the difference between the cost of attendance and the expected family contribution (EFC). The EFC is determined by a standard formula established by the U.S. Congress.
