Congratulations on your acceptance to Asbury University! We are so excited that you are interested in joining the Asbury community.

FAFSA and Financial Aid
Students applying for Financial Aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. When completing the FAFSA, please make sure Asbury receives your information by using the school code 001952. The FAFSA can be filed beginning October 1 and should be submitted as soon as possible. Students should also complete and return the Privacy Act Notice to the Financial Aid Office.
Your Asbury Student Portal and Asbury Email Address
Accepted students will be emailed specific information offering access to their Asbury email and student portal accounts. Through the student portal you will be able to view your financial aid award as soon as it is completed and eventually can access your class schedule, student account, and more. Once you have your log in information you will find these instructions useful: http://www.asbury.edu/offices/its/help-desk/portalsupport.
