Please submit for the 2016-17 Academic Year.

This estimator is designed to give you an early indication of how much and what types of financial aid you might qualify for if you were a first-year student attending school full-time in the academic year indicated. The Financial Aid Estimator is designed for United States citizens or permanent residents who are unmarried, have no dependents, are under 25, and are dependent on their parents for support. If you don’t meet these criteria, please call us at (304) 457-6354 or email us at for more information.
In using this estimator, please remember:

  • Before completing the estimator, it will be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs available.  You will need to answer some basic questions about your parents’ financial situation.  Remember, the results of the estimator will only be as reliable as the data you provide.
  • This tool is designed to provide you an estimate of your aid eligibility. The financial aid office will provide an official financial aid award once you are admitted to AB and you have completed your FAFSA.
  • This is not an application for admission or financial aid.
  • All fields on the online form are required. If you do not know the information for a certain question, please fill in the box with “N/A” or a zero


If you have questions about applying to Alderson Broaddus University, please contact the Admissions Office. If you have questions about financial aid status, please call the Office of Financial Aid. Both offices can be reached at (800) 263-1549.
