Future Students:  Freshmen

freshmen students with professor

Welcome to Schreiner University and the educational experience you’ve been seeking!

Schreiner University is small enough to give you personalized attention and big enough to offer you a multitude of opportunities to excel and grow!

You may ask yourself “Why Schreiner?” We believe the value lies in our educational experience. It’s not only how much out-of-pocket expense your education costs you, but also what you receive for your tuition dollar.

There are 3 major steps to enrolling in college:

1. Be accepted to the schools in which you are interested.
2. Receive financial aid offers.
3. Decide & commit to the school which is the best combination of value and opportunity.

Our Admissions Counselors will guide you through the admissions process.

When you are accepted to Schreiner University, your Admissions Counselor will let you know if you will receive any freshman merit aid from us. (100% of the 2013-2014 freshmen were eligible for institutional financial aid.)

As we work through the process, we will consider you for any need based aid you qualify for when you submit your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to us. Our school code is 003610.

During this time, we recommend that you also talk to your Admissions Counselor about any of the performance based scholarships for incoming freshmen that you want to pursue. They will coordinate this process for you.

Finally, we offer an extensive Outside Scholarship Program where our Financial Aid office actively works with students to apply for outside scholarships. Before you us on campus as a Schreiner student, there are a couple of ways for you to get this information. You can “friend” us on Facebook or you can watch for our scholarship email notifications.

Scholarship and grant money are the best options for funding your education. Once we’ve exhausted the “free money” options, we will assist you in considering additional financial aid programs:

  -- We offer work study jobs and other job opportunities.

  -- We offer payment plans and other programs to make payments.

  -- We process student and parent loans  through the federal government and state government, as well as private loans if required.

As you go through the process, we have a cost of attending (COA) worksheet that will help you determine your true bottom line to attend Schreiner University.

Please contact the Financial Aid office with any questions about loans or other programs. You can reach us at finaid@schreiner.edu, 1-800-343-4919 or 830-792-7217, or visit us in person in the Welcome Center. Our office is open Monday – Friday from 8am – 5pm.

We are here to help you every step of the way.

The Office of Financial Aid at Schreiner University is committed to assisting students in obtaining the best financial aid award possible. However, it is the student’s responsibility to comply with all requirements necessary to complete the financial aid process. In addition, the Office of Financial Aid is not responsible for the student's financial obligations to Schreiner University. Each student must verify their account balance and make arrangements for any amounts not covered by financial aid.
