Options for Financing Your Logan Education
Logan University participates in a variety of financial aid programs, including grants, loans and work-study. The Office of Financial Aid is here to help to you identify and apply for the assistance you need to make your dreams of a Logan degree come true.
Financial aid is available to students in degree programs who are enrolled at least half-time. Half-time is determined by the degree program in which you are enrolled. For the Doctor of Chiropractic program and all undergraduate programs, half-time requires a minimum of six credit hours per trimester. Our other graduate level programs require a minimum of five credit hours per trimester.
Part of the U.S. Department of Education, Federal Student Aid (FSA) is the largest provider of student financial aid in the nation. All students applying for federal financial aid are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. Eligibility is determined using a federal methodology formula as outlined by the U.S. Department of Education based on the information you submit.
The Federal Title IV school code for Logan University is 004703.
If you are facing an unforeseen financial hardship due to COVID-19, the Office of Financial Aid is here to help. Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) has been designated to provide emergency grants directly to students (that is the HEERF—Student Share) for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
Logan University has received $112,142 designated for students through this fund. As of September 1, 2020, the fund has been exhausted. The full amount of $112,142 has been awarded to 266 students. Priority was on a first-come, first-serve basis to qualifying students. The latest report on Logan’s financial aid provided through the CARES Act can be found here.
The FSA User ID (username & password) serves as your login to various U.S. Department of Education systems. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. Never share your FSA ID with anyone. If you have not already created an FSA ID, you may do so here.
Each student needs an FSA ID. Graduate/professional students are considered independent and do not need parental information when completing the FAFSA. For dependent students, the parent providing the income information on the FAFSA will also need to register for an FSA ID.
