Completing the Financial Aid Process

Federal aid may be available to eligible students taking five or more credit hours each semester.

Submit your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

To receive financial aid determination at Asbury University, students must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for each academic year.

  • It is available January 1 and should be submitted as soon as possible for optimum consideration.
  • The Asbury University School Code is 001952
  • FAFSA Website: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/


Graduate Aid Application

All Graduate students wishing to be considered for federal financial aid must complete a Graduate Aid Application annually. The GAA form will automatically be added as a checklist item in your application portal if you indicated that you will be using financial aid on your application. You can fill this out within your application portal, and it will automatically be submitted to the financial aid office for you. This form, along with the FAFSA, will enable us to determine your financial aid eligibility.

Note: If you did not indicate on your application that you plan on filing the FAFSA, please contact the financial aid office (financial.aid@asbury.edu).


Discovery is the service powered by D2L Brightspace that Asbury uses for online class management. Students taking online classes will find all of their course content, assignments, syllabi, etc. on Discovery. Many professors teaching in-person classes also use Discovery to upload their syllabi and provide a place for online submission of assignments. As a student at Asbury, you will want to frequently check Discovery to stay up-to-date on your classes.

The Basics of Using Discovery

All online courses will use Zoom for virtual class sessions. Please see the link below for more information on using Zoom for your classes.

Finding and Ordering Textbooks

Students may order their textbooks online through the Asbury University Student Bookstore or by using your Student Portal. When ordering textbooks online through either of these avenues, students may pay for textbooks using a Student Voucher. Selecting the Student Voucher payment method will place textbook charges on your student account at the University. This will allow you to pay for the textbooks at a later date or use loans/grants/scholarships to pay for the textbooks. Students may also pay for textbooks with a credit card. 

Note: Vouchers may only be used 3 weeks prior to classes starting, and two weeks after they begin. It is best to order all textbooks prior to the start of the semester.


If you wish, you may purchase your textbooks outside of Asbury University. Please note, when purchasing textbooks and materials outside of the institution, make sure that you are securing the correct required textbook editions and materials. The best ways to ensure that you are securing the correct textbooks and materials is to access textbook information through the Asbury University Online Bookstore at asburyu.ecampus.com and to use the book’s ISBN number when searching for a textbook online.
