Student Financial Aid

Undergraduate students who wish to apply for federal financial aid and loans for summer must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 total credit hours for all summer sessions.  Interested students must be matriculating towards a degree and file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Summer sessions start the new academic year at Canisius therefore the FAFSA should be for the new year.  (i.e., for Summer 2018 registrations, a 2018-2019 FAFSA is required).  If you have any questions visit the Student Records & Financial Services Center located in Bagen Hall Room 106 or contact us via email at studentservices@canisius.edu or by phone at (716) 888-2600.
