Financial Aid

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students attending Delgado for the Spring 2020 semester need to complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA (not the 2020-2021 FAFSA).

Our goal is to provide the best possible service to students and families who are in need of financial assistance to meet the increasing cost of higher education. The financial aid process is a collaborative effort in which students, their families and the Financial Aid office each have their own responsibilities to follow. 

  • Students and their families are primarily responsible for funding the student's college education.
  • Students are responsible for successfully completing their education and repaying their loans. 
  • The Financial Aid Office is responsible for properly administering the Financial Student Aid Programs.
