Financial Aid & Scholarships
We’re here to help
Your hours earned at Butler are valuable and we know that paying for them can be a challenge. Our Financial Aid counselors work with students to help you receive federal funding like grants and direct loans. Some funds are available based on financial need as established by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may also qualify for scholarships based on your academic, activity or athletic qualifications. There are also work-study employment opportunities. We can help you earn an income that will offset some of your expenses while you are in school.
How to apply. What to expect.
We have provided simple instructions for filling out the FAFSA and applying for financial aid, which must be done every year you're attending school. If you are a returning student, complete the FAFSA Renewal application.
It can take up to eight weeks to process your application, so apply early to avoid a payment contract or having to pay on your own. The following are priority dates for submitting any forms and documents that Financial Aid may request.
- Fall Classes: July 1
- Spring Classes: December 1
