    • Download the pdf, Application for Institutional Financial Aid.
    • Save the file to your computer.
    • Open the file on your computer and type in your information.
    • Save the completed form again on your computer.
    • Email the completed form to the Office of Financial Aid at
    • You will receive a confirmation email. If you do not, please call Cynthia Piana at                       (615) 297-7545, x257.

  • Once you have been admitted to Aquinas College and you have submitted a financial aid application, an award letter will be mailed to you. Your award letter will indicate all the types of institutional financial assistance for which you are eligible. You may accept your aid package by returning the letter with your signature to indicate that you are accepting the financial aid offered to you.
