Applying for Financial Aid

The Basic Application Process

The 2018-19 FAFSA is used for the 18-19 Academic Year (Fall 2018 through Summer 2019). 
The 2019-20 FAFSA is used for the 19-20 Academic Year (Fall 2019 through Summer 2020). 

Complete the appropriate FAFSA online at, listing University of St. Thomas, school code 002345, as an institution to receive your information.  You will use your Federal Student Aid (FSA) Identification (ID).   Your FSA ID (a username and password) confirms your identity and must be used to log in to any U.S. Department of Education website.

  •  The default address for the University of St. Thomas is 2115 Summit Ave, St. Paul, MN.  If your program is in Minneapolis, another location or online the graduate financial aid office will receive your FAFSA results successfully.   

  • Be admitted as a degree-seeking student in an eligible graduate program. Certificate-only and some licensure students are not eligible for federal financial aid at the University of St. Thomas; however, are eligible for private loans (no FAFSA required).

St. Thomas determines your financial aid eligibility and sends you a Notification of Award once all requested information has been received and processed. This notification will list the types of aid programs and the amounts for which you qualify.
