The 24/25 FAFSA is now available to complete at!

Ashland University is committed to providing Financial Aid offers as soon as possible once the Department of Education begins transmitting student FAFSA data to institutions in early March.

For assistance with completing the 24/25 FAFSA, please contact the Financial Aid Office to schedule a personalized in-person or virtual session! 

Calculate Your Cost of Attendance

How much should I expect to pay?

The Ashland University Net Price Calculator will help you estimate your out-of-pocket costs as well as provide an estimate of financial aid for your upcoming year. First-year and transfer students can be financially prepared to begin your college education.

First-year students will need your high school GPA and your ACT score. Transfer students will need their cumulative college GPA and college credit hours accrued.

Please note that this is an estimate; its result is formulated from the information provided. You will receive an official offer once your FAFSA and all required documentation are received.

Financial Aid For Your Student Type

Financial Aid Steps

To receive your financial aid in a timely manner, please complete these steps:


Apply — Complete your FAFSA by April 1 using Ashland University’s school code 003012. You and your parent(s) will each be prompted to create your own FSA ID when you log on to the FAFSA site and you will use that FSA ID to sign your completed FAFSA.


Review Financial Aid Offer — Review your offer on Self-Service. All prospective and current students will be notified in their AU email that their Financial Aid Offer is available. Check your Ashland University email account frequently for revised offers and important notices from the Financial Aid Office.


Complete Loan Processes — For any federal loans listed on your Financial Aid Offer that you wish to accept, federal loan borrowing requirements must be completed. If you wish to accept, accept a portion or decline any of your loans, please do so in Self-Service.


Consider Other Funding Options — Once you have reviewed your financial aid offer and determined your remaining net costs, review other funding options such as federal or private loans and/or an AU payment plan.
