Applying For HLGU Scholarship Programs
Upon applying for admission to the college, students are automatically considered for HLGU scholarships. See the Academic/Achievement Scholarships section for descriptions of these awards.
Submitting the FAFSA
Students seeking federal financial aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) after January 1 on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The HLGU federal school code is 009089 and priority submission date is July 1 for fall admission and November 1 for spring admission for traditional students. For Missouri student’s, the FAFSA must be submitted by April 1 for state grants.
After your FAFSA has been submitted you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) in the mail or by e-mail within a few weeks. You will need to review your information for accuracy. If any changes need to be made you can make these. If you list Hannibal-LaGrange University’s Title IV School code (009089), your FAFSA information will be received by our Financial Aid Office. This information allows us to determine your financial aid and send you an award letter. Your award letter will be mailed to the address given on your FAFSA. This letter will consist of HLGU scholarships, grants, loans, and work study. Your Admissions Office Representative will contact you to discuss your award letter to see if you have any questions.
Selected for Verification
Each year the Department of Education requires review on at least 30% of all FAFSA applications. Students will be notified that they have been selected for verification on their SAR as well as a verification letter sent by HLG’s Financial Aid Office. This verification letter will state what items are needed for verification. Please see list below. It is encouraged to submit all paperwork at the same time. Financial Aid awards will not be finalized until the HLGU Financial Aid Office has completed the student’s verification.
If you have questions, please call 573-629-3279. All forms are to be mailed by July 1 for fall admission or November 1 for spring admission to:
