Financial Aid

Follow these steps to have your eligibility determined for all financial aid including loans:

1. Complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.  You will be using the previous year’s Federal Income Tax forms.

2. List McKendree University on the FAFSA.  McKendree’s school code is 001722.  ISAC will then send you a letter indicating eligibility for any State Aid. You may be eligible for State Aid even though you are not eligible for Federal Aid. Please file your FAFSA as soon as possible.  State budget limitations at times cause funding shortages.

3. You will receive a SAR (Student Aid Report). 

4. Once you have registered for classes, McKendree’s Office of Financial Aid will review your SAR to determine your eligibility. There may be more paperwork to complete at this time. The Office of Financial Aid will notify you of what is needed. Once all documentation is reviewed, an award will be prepared and sent to you.
