Why file the FAFSA?
  • Valparaiso University strongly encourages students to file the FAFSA to best position yourself to receive all the aid for which you qualify.
  • In addition to federal and state grants, Valparaiso University offers grants based upon need through the FAFSA. Valparaiso University bases its own FAFSA-based grants on a more generous treatment than the federal formula.
  • You could qualify for federal student loans with an in-school subsidy or for the unsubsidized student loan.
  • You are eligible to apply for the PLUS Loan.
