Below is a step-by-step tool that will guide you through the financial aid process beginning with your application for admission to Salisbury and concluding with the payment of your bill. The links are helpful to both prospective and incoming freshmen. Be sure to visit the rest of our website for more information that may meet your specific needs.
Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online after January 1, for the 2016-2017 academic year; October 1st for the 2017-2018 academic year. Priority funding is March 1st (however, some aid funds are first come-first served). Include our school code, 002091, and retain your confirmation page for your records.
Financial Aid Award Notifications are sent beginning in early March for students who are enrolling as a transfer student for the fall semester. You will be sent a hard copy letter announcing the availability of your financial aid package on the GullNet. If you just completed your FAFSA or were recently admitted to Salisbury, you will be able to access your award notification 2-3 weeks after the date of submission of your FAFSA or the date you are admitted, whichever is later.
Salisbury University has adopted the U.S. Department of Education's Shopping Sheet. You can view your Shopping Sheet via your GullNet account. There will be a link to your Shopping Sheet when you view your financial aid package.
Please review your 'To Do List' for missing documents. Once our office receives all of the requested information we will verify your aid eligibility to either confirm or make a revision to your initial aid offer. If your aid offer is recalculated you will be notified by our office. Failure to respond within the requested timeframe may reduce your financial aid funding.
The awards listed on your initial Award Notification are based on full-time enrollment. If you plan to enroll for less than 12 credits, you must submit the Course Load Change form indicating your planned number of credits for each term. Your financial aid may need to be updated based on the enrollment change.
Your fall semester bill will be available in mid-July.
Pay your bill prior to the due date in early August to avoid late fees
All students must meet financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards to maintain eligibility for financial aid awards. Students' academic progress will be evaluated at the conclusion of the fall, spring and summer semesters (if enrolled).
