Financial Aid

Bloomsburg University understands that you and your family may be facing financial challenges due to the outbreak of COVID-19. If you expect your total family income for 2020 to be reduced by at least 20%, you may consider completing our special condition form. If you are a PA resident, you should also complete the reduced income form and submit it directly to PHEAA for review. Please note that the earliest you can complete these forms is 4 weeks after the loss of income began. Forms may be found at
