Renewing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid):

All students must reapply for financial aid each year! As a continuing student, it’s important to note that our academic year starts with the Summer Semester. The 2021-22 FAFSA is applicable for Summer 2021, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters.

If you’re continuing with your degree as we move into Summer 2022, you’ll want to make sure that you complete your 2022-23 FAFSA. The 2022-23 FAFSA will be available starting October 1, 2021 at For all of our adult online and accelerated undergraduates and our graduate and doctoral students, we strongly recommend that you renew your FAFSA on or before March 1.

All on-campus, daytime undergraduate students are required to renew their FAFSA by March 1 and submit required financial aid documents to complete their file by May 1. Missing these deadlines may result in a loss or reduction of financial aid, including grants and work-study, even if you are eligible. If you do not meet these financial aid deadlines, you can appeal with our office by submitting our FAFSA On-time Appeal Form (

If you’re an undocumented student, please make sure to renew your ASSET Financial Aid Application every year by March 1 (

Most on-campus, daytime undergraduate programs are enrolling for the fall and spring semesters only. If you are interested in attending for the summer semester (or you’re in a program that requires summer enrollment), you’ll want to make sure to connect with our office and submit our Summer Aid Application (

Most institutional merit scholarships are automatically renewed for the upcoming year, provided you maintain full-time enrollment in your degree program and you are meeting Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress ( The majority of institutional merit scholarships are granted for up to 8 full-time, fall and spring semesters.

Some merit scholarships may require a certain GPA or major for continued eligibility. If you have any questions about your merit scholarship, please let us know! We will help answer your question or direct you to the appropriate department.


Federal, state and institutional grant eligibility is determined based on your FAFSA information. Funding is limited and we utilize the March 1 FAFSA filing date as our priority deadline for consideration. If your FAFSA information drastically changes each year, that may affect your eligibility for specific grant programs.

Student loans:

If student loans are a part of your yearly financial aid offer at Regis University, you can accept, decline or reduce the amount you wish to borrow on the Ranger Portal. Learn how to accept your student loans in Ranger Portal. If you ever need to adjust amounts you’ve already accepted, you can complete our Financial Aid Revision Form (

If you’ve already taken out loans at Regis University, you will not need to complete Entrance Counseling for your loans again. Master Promissory Notes (MPN) are good for 10 years. We keep track of your completed Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note on the Ranger Portal so you can check and make sure we have yours on file.  

Parent PLUS loans and Graduate PLUS loans require a separate application each year at Keep in mind the credit check requirement for these loans is good for 180 days, so the first disbursement on your loan must happen prior to your credit check expiring each year.

If you are seeking a private student loan through an outside lender, you must also apply each year through the lender of your choice.
