Financial AidShould I apply for financial aid? How can I tell if I make too much money to qualify?
If you think you will need help paying for your studies, you should apply. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can apply online at See apply for aid for further instructions.

The calculation that determines eligibility for aid is complicated. There is no clear income ceiling. The only way to find out for sure is to apply.

How much financial aid will I receive?
You can receive aid equal to your financial need. Financial aid is not intended to replace your contribution toward educational costs. Rather, it helps fill the gap between what you can pay and your total educational costs.

How is my financial need determined?
A standard analysis is used to determine financial need. The amount you are expected to contribute (the expected family contribution or EFC) is calculated based on the information reported on your FAFSA. The EFC is then subtracted from the cost of attending Antioch. The difference between the two is your need for financial assistance.

What if I have unusual circumstances or my situation changes after I apply for aid?
Contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if the changes impact your eligibility for assistance.

What kinds of documents may the school request to verify the information on my application?
The financial aid staff may ask you to provide documents to verify any item on the application. Make sure you keep a photocopy of your completed federal tax returns and W-2s used to complete the application.
