Financial Aid

    • Red Tab – Review and submit the requested documentation immediately.
    • Yellow Tab – You have submitted all requested documentation and your file is being reviewed by one of our staff members. Our review process takes approximately 14 business days.
    • Green – You are good to go!
  • Remain in Identity Management and navigate to Financial Aid Awards 2020-2021. Review your financial aid awards and confirm that everything looks accurate.
    • If you wish to decline any portion of your financial aid package, please email us at awarddecline@albright.edu with your request. We will notify you when we have made the requested changes.
  • Explore Payment Options
    • Log into LionPay at https://selfservice.albright.edu/SELFSERV/Home.aspx and view our convenient payment plan options. You may utilize this option to pay all or a part of your tuition.
    • PLUS Loans
      • If your parents plan to borrow to support your education, the Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Student (PLUS) is an option. The application can be found at https://studentaid.gov/app/launchPLUS.action?plusType=parentPlus.
      • If your parent is denied for PLUS, you may receive additional Unsubsidized Stafford Loan funds.
    • Private Loans
      • Educational loans are available through private lenders. These loans are typically in the student’s name and usually require a creditworthy co-signer. Be sure to consider all of your options before considering a consumer-based secondary student loan. A resource to consider for private loans is elmselect.com.

Finally, if your family has experienced a change or has unusual circumstances, we may be able to help. Please contact our office at finaid@albright.edu or 610-921-7515.
