Antioch University offers financial aid in the form of scholarships and grants of different types, such as need-based, on scholastic achievement, and athletic grants. Merit-aid is awarded only on the basis of academic achievement rather than financial need. Applicants need to file a FAFSA first before proceeding with the aid applications. Below are the aids that are awarded at Antioch University:
Departmental Scholarships/Grants: All newly admitted AULA students that meet the stipulated scholarship/grant eligibility criteria are automatically considered for this funding opportunity. A new student’s admission application file is used by the Program’s Scholarship/Grant Committee in determining recipients in their particular program. Every term, a select group of continuing students may be eligible for these awards based on exceptional merit or high financial aid need. For additional questions, students should contact the chairs of their academic department.
Donor-based Scholarships: AULA has several scholarships that are donor-funded. To be eligible for these scholarships, certain criteria must be met and a separate application may be required. Currently, all awardees are determined and notified directly by the academic department. For the latest information, please contact your academic department.
Community College Scholars Program: Antioch University Los Angeles offers this scholarship opportunity for undergraduate students transferring from a community college with whom AULA has an articulation agreement. This opportunity is available if you apply to enter one of Antioch’s bachelor’s programs. If granted a Community College Scholarship, Antioch will waive the tuition for your first 6 units, a savings of up to $4,074. This grant will be split between your first 2 quarters. You are eligible for this scholarship if you have earned a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA and at least 24 transferable semester units at a qualifying community college.
If you meet the criteria above, you will automatically be considered for the scholarship. Preference will be given to students who have been enrolled in and completed the community college units within the last four years.
Federal Direct Loans: Loans that are part of the Direct Student loan program, which helps students pay part of their educational expenses by borrowing directly from the government. Terms of the loan are covered in greater detail in the required Federal Loan Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note. Loan repayment begins six months after a student graduates withdraw, or drops below half-time status.
Federal Direct Subsidized Loan: Based on Unmet Need, the federal government pays the interest on subsidized loans while you are enrolled at least half-time. For July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020, subsidized loans have a fixed 4.53% interest rate for undergraduate students.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan: Students are not required to have Unmet Need to borrow an unsubsidized loan, but are responsible for interest that accrues during deferment periods with this loan type.

Federal Parent PLUS Loan: A Parent PLUS loan is an unsubsidized loan for parents of dependent undergraduate students, limited to the cost of attendance minus other financial aid received.
