Financial Aid

The primary purpose of student financial aid is to provide supplemental resources for students who otherwise would be unable to pursue an education. It is the philosophy of the university that the primary responsibility of educating a student first lies with the student. Financial Aid is offered as an additional resource to assist the student.  

Students entering or enrolled in Dallas Baptist University are encouraged to apply for financial assistance by completing the Free Application of Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students who are non-citizens of the United States may be eligible to receive aid from the State of Texas by completing the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) found at College for All Texans. Additional financial aid information may be found on the DBU Financial Aid Home page, and reviewing the Types of Aid available to DBU Students. This aid consists of Grants, Scholarships, and Loans  as well as self-help aid, and work-study programs.
