RN-to-BSN Financial Aid
RN-to-BSN Financial Aid Steps
As you go through these steps, don't hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions or are unclear about any part of the process.
Apply For Admission
Apply for admission and receive a letter of acceptance into the RN-to-BSN program at the University of Sioux Falls. Contact Tricia Snyder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
File Your FAFSA
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov and have the results sent to USF (school code 003469). The FAFSA form must be renewed on an annual basis. If there are extraordinary circumstances in your family's situation that you feel aren't reflected on the FAFSA, you should contact the Financial Aid Office. Special Circumstances are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Investigate sources for other scholarships
- Ask your employer (or your parents' employers) about scholarship possibilities.
- Check with community organizations, or organizations you and your family are part of, about possible scholarships.
- Check out USF's Outside Scholarships and research other scholarship opportunities on the Internet.
Investigate other financing options
Students needing financial assistance to complete one of these programs have other financing options for semesters when federal loans are not available. Students can apply for a private alternative bank loan or an interest free payment plan. See the Alternative Funding Sources page for further details on these options.
