Apply for Aid

If you’ve been accepted into a master’s level or certificate program at Bethel, you can apply for financial aid. Applying for aid is a process you’ll go through each year you’re a student here.

  1. Fill out the Bethel Financial Aid Application.

    Students pursuing a master's degree or certificate:

    You may also download the paper version and mail it to our office; however, paper applications take additional time to process.

    Doctor of Ministry students who are interested in loans should complete the FAFSA and the Bethel Financial Aid Application. Learn more about aid for Doctor of Ministry students.

  2. Fill out your FAFSA.

    Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Be sure to include Bethel University (code #002338) on the list of schools to receive your FAFSA information.

    We recommend that you use the IRS Data Retrieval process when completing your FAFSA to minimize the chance that your application is selected for verification. The IRS Data Retrieval process is available approximately 3 weeks after you electronically submit your federal income tax return (6-8 weeks after a paper federal tax return).

    Students selected for verification will be asked to submit a Verification Worksheet.

  3. Apply for separate Bethel scholarships.

    If you’re enrolled in a master’s or doctoratal program at the St. Paul campus, apply for additional scholarships that are available.
