How to Apply? - Undergraduate Online Financial Aid Application
In order to apply for financial aid, you need to fill out and submit the online application form and send the required supporting documents by regular mail.
- Download the Online Application Instructions and read them carefully.
- Once you have submitted your admissions application through Common Application, you will receive an e-mail with a link to the financial aid application from the admissions office within seven working days. Should you wish to, you may return to work on your application over several sessions. Your application can only be reviewed by the Student Financial Services staff after you have submitted it.
- Print out the online application before submitting it and keep it for your records.
- Download the checklist and send it along with your supporting documents
Send the following documents by regular mail:
- Sibling’s Enrollment Verification (if applicable)
- Bank Statement confirming that a minimum of 1.000 EUR are at your disposal for the first semester
- Your parents’ most recent tax statements
- Your parents’ most recent pay slips or a letter of employment
- Additional documents might be required depending on your individual situation
You may want to send scanned copies of your documents in advance to accelerate processing. However, we reserve the right to request the original documents once financial aid is released.
For more information on payment details and deadlines see the Student Financial Services Payment and Financial Aid Policies Handbook.
Please note: All documents need to be certified and accompanied by official translations into either English or German.
Scanned copies of all required documents should be sent by e-mail to: sfs [at] jacobs-university.de
