Returning Undergraduate Student Application Process

To receive notification of your Financial Aid eligibility complete steps 1–2 as early as possible.

1. File Your FAFSA

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Make sure to add CLU's school code 001133. File your FAFSA by March 1 for priority consideration. The application deadline is April 15. Students who submit their FAFSA after this deadline will receive a reduced Financial Aid Award.

2. Submit Verification Documents

If you have been selected for a process called Verification or if CLU needs additional information from you, you will receive a letter stating exactly what items we need submitted to the Office of Financial Aid.

Once you receive notification to your email account that your award is ready to view, continue with these steps:

3. Accept or Decline Your Award

It is CLU policy that students are responsible for accepting or declining each component of their Financial Aid Awards. Please Accept or Decline each award listed in WebAdvisor. If you would like to change your decision at a later date on a particular award, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

4. Loan Process

If you accept a Federal Stafford Loan, you must submit both Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note to complete the process.

5. Federal Parent PLUS Loan

If you accept a Federal Parent PLUS Loan, your parent must complete the loan application, which requires a credit check. If your parent’s credit is approved, your parent must then complete a Master Promissory Note.
