Your need is determined by comparing the total anticipated costs of a Saint Anselm education in a given year with the financial contribution that Saint Anselm expects from you and your family.
We believe that financing a student’s education is a family responsibility, to the extent that the family is able to help. Unless you qualify as an independent student by federal standards, or you have highly unusual circumstances, you must file with your parents. You should talk to a member of the financial aid staff if you believe you have circumstances that warrant special consideration.
Incoming 2023-24 students will be able to complete the FAFSA beginning October 1, 2022.
The 2023-2024 FAFSA will be submitted with 2021 tax information, giving families the ability to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) when completing the FAFSA. This allows for automatic transfer of tax information to a student's FAFSA.
The FAFSA is a free application used to determine eligibility for federal student aid programs
Note: If a student’s FAFSA is selected for verification by the Department of Education, we may request additional documents. Please refer to your Admission portal financial aid tab for documents requested.
