At Viterbo, 98% of our students receive some sort of financial aid. This may include federal, state, and institutional grants, work study, or low-interest federal loans.
Students can file their FAFSA starting Oct. 1. The 2018 FAFSA will use 2016 tax data, also known as "prior-prior year" tax data. Feb. 1 is Viterbo's priority deadline for students to submit their FAFSA to the university. Please have your students use the code below to have their FAFSA information sent to Viterbo. Because of the accelerated deadline to submit the FAFSA, Viterbo will be sending estimated aid packages this fall and winter, and official aid packages will be sent out in March 2018 as usual.
Viterbo FAFSA Code: 003911
