Financial Aid

Financial Aid helps narrow the gap between your financial resources and your costs. Financial Aid is available from the federal government, state government, private sources as well as Santa Clara University.

You may apply for federal and state programs by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For first-year undergraduates (non-transfer students) you may be considered for Santa Clara University grants by competing a secondary application, the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE.

NOTE: First-year undergraduates (non-transfer students) interested in only merit-based aid consideration, the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE is not required.

NOTE: All graduate students, the Financial Aid Office does not administer departmental aid. You will need to contact your appropriate graduate school for information about these types of awards.
