Apply for Aid

You can apply for financial aid while you’re applying for admission to the Graduate School, but your aid eligibility won’t be determined until after you’re accepted into your program. Applying for aid is a process you’ll go through each year you’re a student here.

  1. Fill out the Bethel Financial Aid Application.

    Students pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree or licensure:

    You may also download the paper version and mail it to our office; however, paper applications take additional time to process.

  2. Fill out your FAFSA.

    Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Be sure to include Bethel University (code #002338) on the list of schools to receive your FAFSA information.

    We recommend that you use the IRS Data Retrieval process when completing your FAFSA to minimize the chance that your application is selected for verification. The IRS Data Retrieval process is available approximately 2 weeks after you electronically submit your federal income tax return (6-8 weeks after a paper federal tax return).

    If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be asked to submit additional information. Bethel will send you a Verification form outlining the process.
