If you received financial aid from a previous institution during the same academic year, you will want to contact your financial aid counselor at Chaminade University to determine the amount of funds you will be eligible to receive while attending Chaminade.
You will also need to add the school code for Chaminade, 001605, to your existing FAFSA and re-submit.
In order to receive federal direct loans while attending Chaminade, we ask that you complete another entrance interview at studentloans.gov.

Financial Aid Limits
Have a lot of credits? Federal financial aid is limited to a maximum aggregate amount that the government is willing to provide you during the time you take to complete an undergraduate degree. If you have been attending school for a considerable amount of time and have now decided to transfer to Chaminade, you may want to contact your financial aid counselor to verify the remaining funds you are entitled to receive.
