Financial Aid Update

Extension of Fall Billing Deadline

To assist you and your family during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have pushed back our fall billing deadlines. We hope that this later due date will make it easier for you to plan and make financial arrangements.

  • Financial Aid filing deadline is now June 30, 2020
  • All bills will be issued on July 10, 2020.
  • Your new billing due date is August 3, 2020

In the meantime, you can check the student portal to see your fall bill. Please remember that the bill is based on your fall course registration, as well as the costs for housing and meal plans during the semester. Any changes you make to your registration or housing, will be reflected in your bill on the student portal immediately.

Further information will be sent to your billing mailing address on file.

Information regarding the CARES Act and students of Husson University

As many of you know, approximately $2.6 million in financial support will be distributed to Husson University through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund to address the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This fund was created as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) enacted by Congress on March 27, 2020.

As required by the CARES Act, half of the funding will be used for emergency financial aid grants to students. The University is overseeing the distribution of these grants. Other colleges and universities will be doing the same with any funding they receive through the CARES Act.

The guidance about how to distribute these grants was recently released on April 21, 2020 by the Department of Education. The funds Husson University can share with students have not been released yet. While we await this funding, Husson University is beginning work on fair and equitable standards based on the guidance provided by the Department of Education that would determine the size of each qualifying student’s grant.

Once the parameters for funding have been determined, we will be reaching out to students with information about any grants that may be awarded. We thank you for your patience as we work to coordinate all of the details associated with the distribution of these funds.

Where do I begin?

All students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is administered by the federal government, and can be sent electronically to several colleges at once. Based on your FAFSA data, you may be eligible for two types of aid: grants, which you don't have to repay, and self-help aid, which you either earn through work-study, or repay as loans.


Grants, or gifts offered at Husson are based on a range of factors. A list of Husson grants and scholarships is available on the scholarships page.

The financial aid application process can be confusing and overwhelming, especially if you are counting on financial aid to make it possible for you to attend college. Husson University prides itself on being the lowest net-price four-year private university in Maine, and the 8th lowest in New England (source: IPEDS data, College Navigator website)

Financial aid can vary depending on a student's academic standing and financial circumstances. The academic department and program the student is enrolled in can also affect aid. Our goal is to help you understand the variety of assistance options available to you and help you navigate the many steps involved in applying for financial aid.

Please contact our office at or 207.941.7156 with any questions about financial aid and we will be more than glad to help.
