Financial Aid

Students whose method of tuition payment is federal financial aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The amount of tuition covered by the financial aid is deferred until the aid award is disbursed. The awarded amount is divided into 2 semesters - fall and spring. Once awarded, the funds can be declined, decreased, or accepted in the amount awarded.

View the FAU Financial Aid database for additional information. 

Note: Non-degree seeking students will not qualify for federal financial aid.

Tuition Reimbursement

A copy of your company tuition reimbursement policy is required by our office. We will provide information to you required by your Department of Human Resources.

Students who are using full or partial tuition reimbursement as their method of payment receive a grade sheet and invoice or receipt at the end of each semester.

The amount of tuition covered by the tuition reimbursement policy is deferred and should be received up to 30 days after the end of each semester.

Students with partial tuition reimbursement declare a supplemental method of tuition payment. e.g. financial aid or self pay, which covers the remaining tuition.

Self Pay Installments

A payment plan is provided for students who select the self pay method. Fall and spring semesters have two terms with two installments per term. Summer semesters are one term with two installments.

Private Lending

Private, credit-based lending is accepted by the university to assist students with covering full or partial tuition and fees. Lending companies include banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Students are advised to consult with the lending company regarding specific eligibility requirements, interest rates, disbursement options, repayment terms, and other factors.

Military/Veterans Benefits

Students using the GI Bill must complete the VA Certification Request form with all required documents. Upon approval, an FAU VA Official will certify eligibility for funding each semester after being registered for degree-seeking courses and based on continued eligibility. Refer to www.fau.edu/vets for further details, instructions, and resources.

Combination of Payment Methods

Upon departmental approval, students can declare any combination of tuition payment methods.
