n order to be awarded financial assistance through the Office of Financial Aid, a student must complete an annual financial aid application and must meet all eligibility requirements. Students begin the financial aid process by completing and submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at FAFSA.ed.gov using Adler’s school code (G20681). Financial aid applications are year-specific and must be renewed each academic year in order to continue funding. U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents applying to start on Adler University’s Chicago or Vancouver Campuses during fall 2017 semester should complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA. U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents applying to start on Adler University’s Online Campus on or after May 2017 should complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA. In certain instances, other aid application materials may be required. These additional items will be formally requested by the Office of Financial Aid if they are necessary to complete the aid application process. Students will be notified of their aid awards via email and will be asked to review them via the Financial Aid Self-Service area of Adler Connect. Students receive access to this site shortly after being formally accepted to Adler University.
