Awards will be made based upon need. That is, PIU will attempt to provide sufficient financial aid for each student who is admitted so that the student will be able to afford the expenses for the school year. However, the primary responsibility for tuition and fees rests with the student and his or her family.

Any student who wishes to be considered for this financial support should obtain and complete the application forms, including the financial summary form.

General Scholarship Application Form

It is the hope that no admitted student will be denied the opportunity to study at PIU because of inadequate financial support. For more information, contact the PIU financial aid director, the campus registrar, or the teaching facility office manager. Note: PIU does not participate in the student loan program. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is not required for admission. It is strongly encouraged that students complete the FAFSA as early as possible. The online application can be found at:
