Matriculated students in an undergraduate degree-seeking program may be eligible for the following types of Federal Student Aid:
Federal Pell Grant: A federal need-based grant for students enrolled in their first bachelor’s degree who demonstrate exceptional financial need.
Federal Direct Subsidized Loan: A federal educational need-based loan available to students who demonstrate financial need and who enroll on at least a half-time basis in an undergraduate program.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan: A federal educational loan available to students who enroll on at least a half-time basis in an undergraduate program. Not based on financial need.
Federal Direct PLUS Loan: A credit-worthy loan for the parent or legal guardian of a dependent undergraduate student, who has borrowed the maximum amount of Direct Loan assistance. The loan is available regardless of the level of financial need.
State Grants: Certain states allow residents to take their state grants into Pennsylvania for study at Villanova University. Students are responsible for checking with the respective State Higher Education Agency as to the correct application necessary for state grant consideration, application deadlines, and whether their state awards grants to students enrolled in distance learning.
Please note that students in undergraduate online programs are not eligible for Villanova University Grant assistance.
