Financial Aid Opportunities

Financial assistance through scholarships, federal and state grant programs, student loans and other aid programs is available to students of the SBU College of Health Professions. Availability of funding is dependent on your financial need, status and commitment to future employment. To qualify for maximum assistance, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online.

Submit Your FAFSA

The Southwest Baptist University Office of Financial Aid offers a comprehensive financial assistance program designed to recognize student financial needs and to meet those needs with a combination of university, federal, state and private assistance sources.

Once you are admitted to SBU, you will receive an SBU email address and access to the MySBU Admitted Student Portal. You need to check your SBU email address often for important information, especially related to the online process for approving and finalizing your financial aid award.
