Aid & Scholarships
Chatham University offers both need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships.
The Office of Financial Aid is pleased to announce that we are now sending Financial Aid Award Letters electronically to your Chatham e-mail account. Each student will receive a secured link which can be accessed to obtain the award. Your student ID number is the password needed to access the award.
From the electronic award letter, you will be able to obtain helpful information about financial aid, apply for loans, access financial aid documents, and approve or decline your awards. Since the approval of the award will be done electronically, it will not be necessary to print the award letter and return it to our office. Once you have reviewed the award, click on the "Submit" button.
Due to this implementation, we will no longer be sending paper awards to students. If you prefer to receive a paper award, please contact the Student Services Center at (412) 365-2797.
