Step TWO - The Financial Aid Process:

There are several financial aid options available for adult learners. The Crown College School of Online Studies programs participates in Federal Pell Grant, Minnesota State Grant and Federal Stafford loans to help finance your education.

To begin the process, just fill out the federal government's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the government's means of determining what aid is available for you. It usually takes about two hours to fill out, but it is the essential first step to getting aid. Crown's Title IV school code is 002383. The FAFSA is available via the internet, through your local high school, public library, or the . We provide a FAFSA worksheet to shorten your time filling it out. After completing the FAFSA, our financial aid office will put together a custom financial aid package which will include federal and state grant and federal and state loan options.

Step THREE - Registration & Orientation Process:

Once you have received an acceptance letter, your Enrollment Manager will help you access your student email account. Through this secure email account, you will be sent a financial aid award letter; the next step is to register for an online orientation and your first term of classes. Your Academic Advisor will work with you to put together a timeline and course schedule that will fit your busy life for the duration of your education.
