Financial Aid Award Letter Guide

If you’re on this page, a Southwestern University Financial Aid notification was likely delivered to your student’s admission portal.  Ask your student to print or email a copy of the award letter to share with you. In the meantime, click here to tour our sample letter; it is a primer, created just for you to help guide your family through our financial aid award.
