Financial Aid Offers Graduate Students

Real Resources: Financial Aid Options

Tiffin University understands that a college degree at any level can be expensive.  At TU, we have a wide variety of options for financial aid to assist you as you complete your degree program.  These are real resources that can have a real impact on your ultimate success!

What Is Financial Aid?

Financial Aid includes any funds provided to students to assist in paying their costs of a college education. Funds include scholarships, grants, employment, and student loans from the federal and state governments as well as the University and private organizations. The goal of financial aid is to make higher education accessible to all.

Regardless of family income, all students are strongly encouraged to apply for financial aid by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office at Tiffin University.

Attention All Students:  The 2011-2012 FAFSA is available to complete online.  Just click on the above link.  All students who wish to apply for financial aid for the 2011-2012 academic year (including Summer 2011), must complete this FAFSA as soon as possible.  Your application must be completed and received by the federal processor no later than your last date of attendance, if that date is earlier than June 30, 2012.  The last date of attendance can be the last day of a term, or the last day you attend class before withdrawing, whichever comes first.

Online Financial Aid System

NetPartner is an online communication tool that gives students a self-service channel to access their financial aid award, documents, messages and other financial aid information.

By utilizing NetPartner Tiffin University can communicate financial aid packages to students online.  This process decreases the amount of time it takes to notifiy the school and all information is also "real-time."  Students simply respond electroincally to the school to aceept, decline or revise the award.

Students will receive an email notification and also a letter via USPS to advise them that they have an award to view.  This information will also contain directions about how to access NetPartner and set up a new account.
