Applying for Financial Aid

The DPT Program primarily provides financial assistance in the form of federal loans. We strongly encourage you to submit a financial aid application as early in the application process as possible to allow adequate time for the Office of Financial Aid to process your application. You should use the FAFSA that corresponds with your academic year (e.g., if enrolling in January of 2021, you should use the 2020-2021 FAFSA (School code: E00520) and the priority consideration date for applying for aid is November 6, 2020). Do not wait until you have submitted your application or receive an admissions decision to apply for aid, as this will delay your personal financial aid information. More Information on Applying for Aid
