Making Your Education Affordable

The goal of the St. Catharine Financial Aid Office is to ensure our students have the financial resources to make a college education affordable. Our staff is eager to assist you – by phone, email or in person – to help you work through the financial aid process.   Also, we encourage you to use the Net Price Calculator  to get an idea of the resources you may be able to access to help pay for your college education.

Financial aid consists of, federal loans, private loans, grants, work-study and scholarships. Follow the steps below to start the process of arranging the financing for your dream of completing a college education.

1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at Our school code is: 001983. Complete this step even if you think you       will not qualify for financial aid. Information from the FAFSA is used to award scholarships as well as grants and loans.

Please Note: The Federal Student Aid PIN was replaced with the FSA ID  on May 10, 2015.  The new FSA ID
consists of a user-created username and password to electronically access personal information on Federal Student Aid Web sites, including FAFSA on the Web.  You can use your FSA ID immediately to sign your FAFSA, but must wait for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to verify your information before you can use the FSA ID to create a renewal FAFSA, make corrections to your FAFSA, or view your SAR.

2. Look over the Student Aid Report (SAR) after you've completed the FAFSA. Please make any necessary corrections to this form.

3. Be on the look-out for e-mail and letter correspondence from St. Catharine College.

We are delighted that you are considering attending St. Catharine College. If you have questions about any aspect of financial aid, please feel free to email us at or call (859) 336-5082, ext. 1214. We want to help you in every way we can. Working together, we WILL make it happen!
