Financial Aid Award Notification Guide 11-12

The Financial Aid Notification Guide contains an overview of the aid process at Salisbury University and your responsibilities as an aid recipient.

As an aid recipient, you are responsible for reading and understanding the contents of this guide. If you do not understand this information please contact our office. Financial aid policies change occasionally so you will want to view the Guide often.

Our Guide has several forms, in PDF format, that you may be required to complete and submit to our office. To view and print the PDF form, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader.  If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader and wish to download and install it for free, click here.

Important Information

Salisbury University is committed to helping families meet the costs associated with a university education.  However, due to the current economic conditions, we are uncertain of what Federal and State aid will be available.  Therefore, please note that Federal and State aid provided to students in their financial aid packages are estimated and subject to funding availability.  If funding is reduced or discontinued, we will notify you as soon as possible.


Please read the information provided in each blue section.

If this does not apply to you you are required to complete the Change in Course Load/Enrollment form (PDF), and return it to the Financial Aid Office. Please feel free to fax the completed form to our office at 410-543-6138.
