Information regarding the 2024–25 FAFSA

Ƭapp’s Office of Financial Aid has begun receiving student’s 2024–25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Students can confirm the receipt of their FAFSA, if there are any action items your FAFSA requires of you, as well as any outstanding documents that the Financial Aid office needs to finalize your 2024-2025 awards, by logging into your Net Partner account through my.Fairfield and viewing Financial Aid Requirements.

If you have not completed the 2024-2025 FAFSA as of yet and are interested in seeing if you qualify for Federal Student Aid, including federal grants, federal work-study and federal loans, please visit as soon as possible. Ƭapp’s federal school code is 001385.

As a reminder, all communications from Ƭapp’s Office of Financial Aid will be sent via email to the student's my.fairfield email address. It is strongly advised that students check their email often to see if there are any outstanding requirements to process financial aid awards.

College is expensive. We’ll help you figure out how to pay for it.

We're committed to every aspect of your education - including helping you afford it. Currently, 90% of our undergraduate students finance their education through a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study, graduate assistantships, and loans. Graduate students also have financial aid options, such as loans, to help finance their education. We realize that every student has a unique set of circumstances, and we'll work with you one-on-one to do everything we can to help you attend Fairfield.

On this site you'll find a comprehensive list of financial aid options available to you. Our financial aid staff is happy to answer your questions and to help you learn how you can make Fairfield a reality.

Undergraduate Financial Aid

As a prospective Ƭapp student, you are considering an outstanding, private Jesuit institution that requires a significant investment. The value of this investment - both academically and personally - will not only be realized over your four years as a student at Fairfield, but you will reap the benefits in the years well beyond college when you are enjoying a successful career and an enriching life.

Fairfield offers you the kind of education that:

  • Makes you an agile thinker with the multidisciplinary education to form a well-rounded citizen and scholar.
  • Encourages you to develop the intellect, skills and confidence to make your own way in the world, and perhaps change it for the better.

Applicants often assume they cannot afford a highly selective liberal arts college such as Ƭapp, but we are committed to helping you do exactly that. There are a number of ways financial aid can help close the gap between what a family can afford to pay and the full cost of attendance. We are here to advise you on how to bridge the gap and make a Ƭapp education a reality for you.

Just as all students have different academic goals in college, we recognize that their financial aid needs may vary over the course of their four years at Fairfield. We pride ourselves on working individually with students and their families every year to provide the latest information to help them manage and navigate through their financial aid choices.

How to Apply

Whether you are a current or prospective student, we want to make your Fairfield education as affordable as possible. We also created a checklist to make your financial aid application process as easy as possible too.

Types of Aid

While students and families have the primary responsibility for college expenses, Ƭapp sees this as a shared endeavor and will assist students with as much financial aid as possible. That's why we offer varying options for types of aid.

Policies, Forms, and FAQs

Ƭapp's institutional grant and scholarship aid is awarded based on the information provided on the CSS Profile. In order to be awarded aid, students may be required to fill out various forms to verify financial aid eligibility.

Part-Time Students

Investing in a college education can be a major financial decision, and many students need to look beyond their own resources for assistance. The Office of Financial Aid is committed to helping students find the best opportunities to meet their needs, including a wide range of scholarships, loans, tax credits, veterans' benefits and other programs.
