TROY Service Centers meet the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree. Because adult learners often have different educational needs than traditional students, courses are provided at times and in formats designed around people who work and have other commitments for their time.

In order to provide you with more efficient and convenient service, whenever possible, the Office of Financial Aid will use e-mail (and the US Postal Service) to communicate about financial aid. If you are a new student we will use the e-mail address you listed on your admissions application or FAFSA. If we do not have a valid e-mail address on record for you from admissions, you will also receive paper notification of documents needed to complete your application.
The Office of Financial Aid will send you a paper award letter. Awarding will usually begin in April prior to the academic year for which aid is being requested.
After receiving all necessary documents, the Financial Aid Office will calculate your eligibility, including eligibility for the federal loan programs, and will mail you an award letter to complete and return (this must be done each year). More information for new applicants at Troy University.
In order to provide you with more efficient and convenient service, whenever possible, the Office of Financial Aid will use e-mail (instead of the US Postal Service) to communicate about financial aid. We will use the e-mail address listed in the computer system for you (your Troy University e-mail address may supersede any address previously listed). You can review their financial aid using Trojan Web Express and we will use the e-mail listed on the system for you.
After receiving all necessary documents, the Financial Aid Office will calculate your eligibility, including eligibility for the federal loan programs, and will mail you an award letter to complete and return (this must be done each year). More information for continuing applicants at Troy University.
Your maximum eligibility (or financial need) is the amount remaining after your expected family contribution and all other types of financial assistance are subtracted from your cost of education. The formula for calculating your need or maximum eligibility is:
Expected Family Contribution (EFC): When your FAFSA is processed, a formula, established by law, is applied to the information you provided. The formula result is called the Expected Family Contribution, or EFC.
Other Financial Assistance
Maximum Eligibility (Financial Need)
The actual amount of your aid could be less than your financial need for several reasons:
Per federal regulation, Troy University is required to prorate a dependent or independent undergraduate student's annual Stafford loan limits, when they are enrolled for less than a full year and will graduate in the same academic year. This mostly will affect students who will graduate at the end of fall or term 2.
Financial Aid is intended to fill the gap between the cost of education and the expected family contribution.
Most federal and state financial aid programs are based on the expectation that you and your family will contribute some portion of the cost of your education.
If you want an estimate of financial aid prior to applying for either admission or financial aid, you may use an expected family contribution (EFC) financial aid calculator. You will need to provide information on your household size, number of household members attending college, and income and asset information for yourself, and if you’re filing as a dependent student, for your parents as well.
Troy University uses standard costs rather than actual expenses for your cost of education.
If you are not eligible for financial aid (for example - not making Satisfactory Progress or in default on a student loan) you will receive e-mail and/or paper notification.
The Office of Financial Aid continually receives information from other Troy University offices, outside agencies, and from you that may affect your financial aid award.
You have the right to decline or reduce any or all of your financial aid award. You may reduce your award by marking through the awarded amount on the award letter and indicating the reduced amount - sign, date, and return the award. You may decline the award by not returning the award letter or by writing on it that you decline all awards and returning the award letter to us.
Enrolling students are expected to be prepared with sufficient funds for maintenance, books and supplies for at least two weeks. Financial aid is not credited to any student accounts until after the last day of free drop/add (about two weeks after classes have begun). Credit balance checks for any funds remaining on the account after charges are paid are not issued until after the second week of classes. Book vouchers if available are through the Cashiers Office.
