Students need to apply for admission and apply for financial aid. Both of these things can happen at the same time. You do not need to wait until you are admitted to a school to file for financial aid. Our financial aid process requires only one federal form, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

One of the biggest myths about financial aid is that a family with a high income or high savings shouldn’t bother filing a FAFSA since they won’t qualify for aid. While this might sometimes be true for federal or state aid, John Carroll is a private institution and awards nearly $40 million in financial aid each year. We will review your information and do our best to help you in your unique situation.
