Financial Aid: Apply

Financial aid and enrollment processes at Brandman University run in tandem, so submit your aid application and your admission application at about the same time.


Complete Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Every student should complete the FAFSA. It becomes available each year in October. A new FAFSA must be completed each year.

  • Create a FSA ID on the FAFSA website
  • Complete your FAFSA, which is your access to all federal financial aid programs including grants and work-study. It’s easy, and you can apply online 
  • Use Brandman’s Federal School Code: 041618
  • Once your FAFSA has been processed, you may be selected by the federal government for “verification”. If your application is selected you may be asked to provide federal tax transcripts and additional forms. Please respond as soon as you are notified so that your application can continue to be processed.

Note: California residents who are undergraduates are urged to also complete the FAFSA by the March 2nd deadline to qualify for Cal Grant 


Keep in Touch with Your Brandman One Stop Specialist

Meet with your academic advisor to develop an education plan for the academic year. Once you have your academic plan in place,  work with a One Stop Specialist who will assist you with the financial aid process at Brandman University.  This team will be your One Stop shop for any and all questions outside of academics. 


Investigate Employer Tuition Assistance

Your employer may have a tuition matching program or help pay for a portion of your education.  Check with your Human Resources / Benefits department.


Explore Scholarships and Grants

Scholarships and grants do not need to be repaid and may be merit-based, need-based, or awarded due to your background, place of residence or course of study.
