Incoming Residents should submit the 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Be sure to list the AU FAFSA code 001434 in the college release section. If eligible for federal student aid, packages will likely consist of Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans. Participants can also apply separately for additional Graduate Plus Loans, as well as the TEACH Grant.
Please note that City Teaching Alliance participants must complete the FAFSA each academic year to remain eligible for federal student aid. They must also maintain a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA, complete two-thirds of all cumulative attempted credits in their master’s program, and finish the program within the maximum timeframe as defined in AU’s Academic Regulations.
While City Teaching Alliance and AU welcome DACA recipients to this program, DACA recipients are ineligible to receive federal student aid at this time.
