Lower Your College Costs - Financial Aid at TLU

How Can I Receive Financial Aid from TLU?

Over 95% of our students receive scholarships or need-based financial aid such as federal, state, and institutional grants, federal work-study, and federal loans. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at and enter TLU's code 003641 to send your FAFSA to TLU. When TLU receives your FAFSA information from the U.S. Department of Education, we will provide you with your financial aid offer, which will include all of the institutional, state, and federal aid you qualify to receive.

When Can I Expect a Financial Aid Offer from TLU?

Traditionally, financial aid offers are sent to new students in November prior to the incoming fall semester. However, the financial aid timeline for the Fall 2024 semester has been delayed due to the overhaul and revision of the FAFSA. The U.S. Department of Education announced on January 30, 2024, that they will not be sending student financial aid data from completed FAFSAs to colleges and universities, including TLU, until late March. TLU, and other institutions, use FAFSA data to prepare your financial aid offer, which provides the total financial aid you qualify to receive. At this time, TLU is estimating that financial aid offers will be sent to students beginning in April 2024. Updated 2/5/2024.

What Should I Do to Ensure I Am Considered for Financial Aid?

TLU encourages all students, returning and incoming, to complete the FAFSA at for the 2024-2025 academic year. The FAFSA opened on December 31, 2023.

If you are a newly admitted student for Fall 2024, you are eligible to receive an Estimated Net Cost Summary reflecting your potential out-of-pocket costs for TLU with TLU's SAI Calculator. To receive your Estimated Net Cost Summary, please complete the Estimated Net Cost Summary Form on your Student Status page. You will be asked to log in to your Student Status page and must have gained admission for Fall 2024 to access the form.

Note: TLU's SAI Calculator tool is for newly admitted students only and does not replace the FAFSA form. All students, returning and incoming, should complete the FAFSA for the 2024-2025 academic year.
