Financial Aid Information

We recognize that preparing to serve our Lord in full time ministry is a major investment for parents and students. The purpose for Piedmont's financial aid is to make a quality education accessible to qualified students. A variety of grants, scholarships, awards, and loans are available to those who meet the requirements. Piedmont contributes approximately $1 million annually and over 90% of our students receive some form of financial aid. We encourage all future and current students to apply.   

Follow these steps to apply for aid:
Step 1 - Complete the FAFSA (Why Apply?)
Step 2 - Complete the Title IV Authorization Form
Step 3 - Complete the PIU Financial Aid application and apply for PIU's funded scholarships 
Once you complete the necessary steps, an award notice will be generated.

Note: Financial aid files are packaged after a financial aid officer reviews all the information for accuracy and completion. If your FAFSA is selected for further verification, all additional paperwork must be submitted before any aid will be finalized. Changes to enrollment status may affect the type and amount of aid you receive.


  • STEP 1 - Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at
    • If you plan to receive any form of federal and/or need-based institutional aid, you must complete the FAFSA. Apply now to avoid any delays in the Financial Aid process.

    • You will need the previous year's tax returns and your driver's license number. Please be sure to include our school code 002956 and allow approximately 30 minutes to complete the FAFSA. If you have to step away during the application, your information will be saved for 30 days. The FAFSA must be completed annually.  

    • Note: You may be informed by FAFSA that you have been chosen for verification (indicated by an asterisk next to your EFC on the Student Aid Report (SAR) that FAFSA returns to you).  If your FAFSA is selected, you will be contacted by the Financial Aid Office regarding any additional paperwork that is required to process your federal aid.

See our Payment Options page to learn about how to pay for your remaining estimated balance due (as indicated on your award notice) after Financial Aid.
